What is ISO?
The International Standards Organization (ISO) is a non-governmental organization which includes 162 national standards bodies. Each membership body has leading professionals in their industries who share their expert knowledge to design voluntary and market relevant international standards that offer support and innovation to global challenges. This ensures all products and procedures that are ISO certified are created with quality, safety, and efficiency in mind.
What does DIN EN ISO 9001 Cover?
DIN EN ISO 9001 is a family of quality management standards that form the basis for quality assurance and quality management. Being certified shows the competence and performance capability that ABICOR Binzel has achieved. To achieve this certification, an in-person audit is performed at our corporate and production facilities all across the world to review our processes regarding the reduction of waste, product liability and product safety, product and process development, and monitoring of quality-related costs.
Benefits of being ISO certified?
In manufacturing being ISO certified is almost a mandate. It is difficult to credibly do business with other companies in the manufacturing world who are not ISO 9000 or ISO 90001 certified. The legitimacy that comes with such certification means your products and practices have a level of conformance that can complement and are compatible with other similar manufacturing products. It’s crucial to the viability of your business among your peers.
The benefits of ISO certification also includes cost savings which can be passed onto the customer because of the aforementioned product compatibility, as well as helping to identify issues in operations and streamline them. The manufacturing process becomes more lean and streamlined as excess and redundant processes are removed. There are also environmental benefits because ISO standards address any issues that may have a negative impact on the environment, preventing and eliminating waste and pollution that may be released, which aligns with ABICOR Binzel’s existing environmental policy in regards to reducing waste and being conscious about our impact on the environment.
Becoming ISO certified has allowed us to improve our processes at ABICOR Binzel, and make sure we can offer the best possible products and services to our customers. For more information on the ISO-certified products we can offer you, contact us here.
