ISO 9001:2015: What It Is and How It Can Benefit You
At CanForge, we set our expectations high and our standards even higher. When you work with us, you can be confident that your forgings will not only meet your exact specifications, but also achieve global standards for quality.
CanForge is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company, an accreditation that demonstrates our commitment to our customers. This international certification helps us provide superior products you can depend on for any application. Let’s take a closer look at ISO 9001:2015 and the benefits it can offer you and your company as a client of CanForge.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a worldwide group that develops quality standards for numerous industries including healthcare, education and manufacturing. With members in 165 countries, the ISO is the leading organization in developing guidelines and best practices for products and services. The ISO brings together experts to solve technological problems and address safety issues.
These standards are why credit cards are a consistent size, and why we have standard paper sizes like A4. The ISO also plays a key role in ensuring that we have minimum safety requirements to protect consumers.
The ISO has certified CanForge to its ISO 9001 standard, a series of requirements for quality management. The standard’s current version was issued in 2015 and is known as ISO 9001: 2015.
ISO 9001 has two main goals: improve efficiency and increase customer satisfaction. The standard outlines seven principles of quality management that guide businesses in how to improve their processes. In practical terms, ISO 9001 directs businesses on how to streamline their operations and regulate the quality of their products.
How does ISO 9001 benefit CanForge customers?
As a fully compliant ISO 9001:2015 certified company, we regularly upgrade our ISO 9001 quality compliance program to meet any customer requirements. This standard enables us to develop a thorough quality control process, from our initial contact with a client to the delivery of the final product. We follow a series of procedures to ensure that we are operating with efficiency and safety as our top priorities.
On our clients’ end, it means that they can expect high-quality forgings for every project, every time.
And because ISO standards are continually evolving, CanForge evolves too. The ISO is constantly adapting its standards to the changes in global markets and technology. Our ISO 9001 certification means we continue to innovate in response to these changes. We are always working to improve our offerings to our customers so they can stay competitive too.
CanForge’s ISO 9001:2015 certification is just one of the ways we are committed to providing the best quality forgings to our customers. You can view our full list of certifications here.
