What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO is made up of representatives from over 90 countries, including the United States, who work cooperatively to establish various types of universal standard for businesses to follow in their operations. The ISO 9001 standards are designed to help companies set up quality systems for the design, development, production, installation, testing, inspection, and servicing of products.
What does it take to become ISO 9001 Certified?
One of the biggest requirements of the ISO certification is that Teledyne Leeman Labs must prepare documentation pertaining to our quality system. Through the preparation of this documentation we have had the opportunity to evaluate our current operating methods, clearly identify where we could improve these methods, and create a strategic plan for the best way to carry out our processes. ISO Certification is not a one-time analysis. To maintain our certification, we continuously conduct internal audits of all our operating processes to not only ensure we remain consistent in our practices, but to also pass periodic external audits by our registrar, Det Norske Veritas (DNV).
Why is Teledyne Leeman Lab's ISO 9001 Certification important to me?
Becoming ISO 9001 Certified is no easy task. Because we are certified, you know that we set up a quality system according to requirements set through the ISO 9001 standard. Fulfilling these requirements means we are constantly striving to produce top-quality products and services.
