We’re really excited to announce that ASG have achieved ISO9001:2008 Quality Certification, this coupled with our success in August 2014 by gaining the CE Mark Accreditation – Execution Class 2 underpins the stability and future growth of the business.
For the last 2 years our key focus has been on achieving the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Standard and in September this year we received final confirmation from the Global Group – Management System Experts (UKAS approved Management Systems) that we had been successful following August’s Stage 2 Audit.
Brief – ISO 9001
The ISO 9001 standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.
ISO 9001:2008 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.
The standard sets out the following 6 main areas which companies must comply with before gaining certification;
- Quality Policy and Quality Objectives
- Customer focus
- Management Commitment
- Process Approach and tour of business premises
- Internal Audit
- Management Review
What ISO means to ASG and our Customers
Our company procedures are process driven to ensure the streamlined and effective approach is relevant to our business whilst improving quality and efficiency across the whole business, not only on our products and services but our employee’s as well.
The aim is to continually improve the systems we have in place to ensure that all of our clients receive Quality Products and Services from ASG and in turn giving them confidence that we will deliver on Quality.
Sarah Heald – Business Development Director says “It has always been at the forefront of our minds that the processes and procedures we have in place reflect what we do on a daily basis and not just a Quality Management System Gathering dust on a shelf. Working with a cross section of departments throughout the business has ensured that the improved processes and procedures are meaningful and relevant to each individual no matter what department they work in.”
