Quality Management System Certifications
Both SMC and USY are ISO 9001:2008 certified. Our products meet international standards and our quality management system has been certified to ISO 9001:2008 Standard. As part of our continual effort to deliver quality products, we intend to obtain ISO 14000 certification for SMC.
ISO 9001:2008 is the new single standard which was developed to replace the 1994 versions of ISO 9001, ISO 9002 and ISO 9003. ISO 9001:2008 is a set of global quality management standards and guidelines sponsored by ISO that has been adopted in many countries. It is a system for establishing, documenting and maintaining a system for ensuring the quality of the output of a process. Generally, the ISO 9001:2008 certification and audit is carried out once a year by the China Certification Committee for Quality Mark, Quality Certification Centre. This involves:-
- a) A review of the facility's quality manual and all related documentation to ensure that it meets the standards specified; and
- b) An audit of the facility's process to ensure that the system documented in the quality manual is in place and effective.
The ISO 9001:2008 certification is awarded to a company that has put in place a quality management system that complies with certain key criteria of the ISO 9001:2008 standards including, inter alia, management responsibility, quality policy, management review, documentation requirements, purchasing, product identification and traceability, process control, control of monitoring and measuring devices, control of non-conforming products, corrective and preventive action, handling, storage preservation and delivery, internal quality audit, training, servicing and statistical techniques. With this certification, our customers can be assured that our quality management system conforms to international standards.
