Home » Mondeo’s quality management system is now at ISO 9001:2015 level
Quality is a concept that deeply marks all levels of Mondeo. Not by chance, the company has been following the ISO 9001 certification road since the end of the Nineties.
From that moment onwards, quality management system certification has represented a solid and true development instrument, so every adaptation that is requested is always considered as an occasion for additional improvement rather than a simple adjustment to be made.
The same thing is true for the latest review of the standard.
With long-term logic, Mondeo started an analysis process in time and implemented new procedures, investing a great deal in in-house training, so as to be ready for 15 September 2018, the cut-off date for all certified companies to adapt to the new standard.
Mondeo has already successfully completed the procedure for the passage from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015, and certification was officially issued by the certifying body Rina on 29 May.
Certification involves the production, assembly, electropolishing, and marketing of check valves, foot valves, manifolds and other hydraulic components made of stainless steel, as well as the third party electropolishing of stainless steel components.
But how does the new standard differ from the previous one?
In line with the development of the global economy system, with new demands and expectations, and with the request for new requirements and new variables to be kept under control, ISO 9001:2015 aims to give companies greater complexity management capability.
Risk identification and assessment in each company area, from production to marketing to administration, therefore take on a central role. It is obvious that management planning with a nonconformity prevention viewpoint is being dealt with, an objective that can only be reached by considering clients in their own individual context and above all by spreading knowledge of responsibility through all company levels.
It follows that all the human resources, but first and foremost company management, are involved actively and operatively in quality management.
“The logic behind the new standard,” explained Lorenza Ghiotto, manager of the company’s in-house coordination, “fully agrees with the definition of our values, our mission and our vision. We believe that clients, intended broadly as stakeholders, in other words external clients, but also colleagues, suppliers and partners, are an inspiration for creating value and continuous improvement together, thanks to the contribution and involvement of everyone. Another important aspect of the new standard is also procedure slimming, information and data computerisation, which makes the standard more functional for the needs of individual company realities and which can make organisation even more efficient.”
