By Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation
Trelleborg’s marine systems operation has upgraded its ISO 9001:2008 certification to the new International Quality Standard ISO 9001:2015, following verification from Lloyd’s Register. Demonstrating its dedication to operating efficient management processes, this revised quality standard will aid the company in the delivery and improvement of its services, to meet changing industry requirements.
The latest revision of the ISO 9001 standard focuses on performance, and supports continual practice improvements to ensure that company management systems are used as a structural tool for achieving continually high levels of quality. Certified companies have proved they are committed to demonstrating a framework for continuous improvement, and are assessed annually to ensure company progress is maintained.
Being accredited to ISO 9001:2015, prior to the September 2018 transition deadline – something only 20% of UK companies have achieved – is a significant achievement for us as a business and one that is testament to the efforts of our transition team. Our quality management system has been developed to the benefit of our customers, while ensuring the delivery of our products and services are of consistently high quality.
