Quality Policy and Accreditation

Quality Policy

A quality policy is implemented and is appropriate to the purpose and context of the organisation and supports our strategic direction.  The quality policy provides a framework for setting quality objectives and includes commitments to satisfy applicable requirements and to continual improvement of the quality management system.

The quality policy is communicated, understood and applied within the organisation and is available to relevant interested parties, as appropriate.



The quality system is maintained in order to meet the ISO 9001 and 14001 standard requirements.

The quality system adds credibility to our systems and processes.  This is demonstrated by the fact that our product or service meets the expectations of our customers.  



All critical working processes are continuously monitored to secure documented evidence that the specified quality is achieved. In these areas, the data are analyzed and improvement activities are decided using the Corrective and Preventive Action System (CAPA). 



Quality audits are carried out to verify that all activities comply with existing quality documentation and that the quality system is efficient and user-friendly. Four types of audits are defined: 

  1. Internal quality audits of all departments based on a yearly audit plan.
  2. Audits from customers.
  3. Audits of suppliers.
  4. Audits from independent certifying bodies (LRQA, etc.).
