Haco Tail Lift Parts has successfully completed implementing the ISO 9001-2015 certification. Since December 2017 we have been active implementing the international ISO standard. We are proud to announce that, from July 2018, we are officially ISO 9001-2015 certified.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001-2015 is the international standard for quality management systems. The ISO organisation stands for drafting and maintaining thousands of different standards. Most of these are aimed at products, some are aimed at generic management systems. The most used and most known standard is by far ISO 9001, which stands for management systems for quality of the organisation. ISO 9001 can be used to assess whether the organisation is capable to comply to the demands of customers, laws and legislations applicable to the product and demands of the organisation itself.
In addition the aforementioned demands form good starting points for setting up and implementing a quality system. ISO 9001 can also be simplified to:
- Say what you’re doing
- Do what you’re saying
- Prove it
What exactly does ISO 9001 mean?
To obtain ISO 9001, a trajectory will have to be started in which all procedures, prescriptions and processes of the organisation will be mapped out. These procedures, prescriptions and processes are documented in the so-called ISO report. The subjects that ISO says need to be mapped out are, amongst other things, context of the organisation, leadership, planning, support, execution, evaluation and improvement. When the report is finished, an external, independent party will determine whether the quality system of the organisation complies to the norm standards. After three months an audit will take place to determine whether the organisation is really working according to the report.
