When you drive around industrial complexes in the United States you will often see companies that have a banner or sign on the outside that reads: ISO Registered. It is a sign that is proudly displayed and it should be. Here’s why:
ISO stands for the International Organization for Standardization. ISO is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. International Standards give state of the art specifications for products, services and good practice, helping to make industry more efficient. Developed through global consensus, they help to break down barriers to international trade.
ISO was founded in 1947 and since then has published more than 19500 International Standards covering almost all aspects of technology and business.
ISO 9001:2008 requirements are underpinned by eight management principles:
- a customer focused organization
- the involvement of people
- ensuring a process approach
- a factual approach to decision making
- mutually beneficial supplier relations
- continuous improvements
The award of ISO 9001:2008 Registration indicates that the company has implemented a quality management system that enables it to consistently provide products that meet customer requirements and enhances customer satisfaction throught the effective application of the system.
ISO 9001:2008 is recognized by businesses around the world as the premier quality management standard. ISO Registered companies have been certified as trusted companies that plan, organize and control all of its processes, allowing them to offer their clients high-quality products.
So, when looking for a thermoforming company that has been certified as being able to plan and control and follow its processes in order to deliver high-quality products to their customers, look for those manufacturers that proudly state, ISO Registered.
