Now certified to ISO 9001 & 14001
Medifab has passed certification of it's Rolleston operation to the ISO 9001 and 14001 standards.
A brief description of how important certification is to Medifab:
ISO or the International Standards Organisation which started life in the 1950’s based in Europe, started to understand that there was a great need for one International set of standards. The main standards at the time and still are B.S. (British Standards) and ANSI (American National Standard Institution). In both these cases each has many standards covering many fields of expertise. There was however no Standard system which revolved around co-operation and standardisation.
ISO achieved great success and although in the first few years companies and organisations adopted not to change, change was inevitable. ISO has now grown global and even the B.S. and ANSI have had to organise their standards around ISO and visa versa.
What is a standard?
A standard is something that organisations and companies use to demonstrate to customers that they comply.
It demonstrates that their work practises, management and quality are controlled by a set of rules. These parts together form a chain; if chain links (the process) are correct then customers get total satisfaction, from the products and devices they purchase. These products and devices will always meet the standard and if anything goes wrong with the product or device there is a quality system in place that will ensure resolvement to customer.
It is a great achievement for Medifab to gain this prestigious ISO certification, as companies and customers will know that Medifab is a company who seeks to improve, care and help in the welfare of others.
