BIRNS COMPLETES SUCCESSFUL ISO 9001:2008 RECERTIFICATION AUDIT
BIRNS, Inc. has announced that its Quality Management System (QMS) recently had its successful ISO 9001:2008 recertification audit carried out by DNV-GL, an international certification body and classification society created as a result of a merger between Det Norske Veritas and Germanischer Lloyd. ISO 9001:2008 is a globally recognized standard for QMS implementation from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). During the audit, BIRNS' QMS was thoroughly reviewed across all applicable company departments and all standard elements to ensure proper implementation, procedure compliance and proof of continuous process improvements, as required by the Standard.
BIRNS first received ISO certification in 2009 and has maintained it ever since, identifying ways to improve its processes and concomitant productivity each year. DNV-GL has its own requirements for maintaining the certification, requiring internal audits and a surveillance audit each year, in addition to the 3-year recertification audit. “Adhering to the rigorous Standard demonstrates our commitment not only to continual improvement, but to sustainable business performance,” says Eric Birns, President and CEO. “This successful audit reflects the ongoing efforts of our entire team, as well as our dedication to providing our customers with the highest quality products and exceptional customer service.”
