Horsham, PA — Kip Anthony, Vice President of Marketing for EFE Laboratories, Inc., announced today that they have recently extended their ISO 9001:2000 Certificate to the year 2008. Originally issued July 23, 2002, the ISO Certification was revised September 12, 2005, making it valid until May 31, 2008. ” ISO certification,” stated Mr. Anthony, “categorizes EFE Labs as a world-class manufacturer, and it ensures that our quality will remain at the high level our customers expect and deserve. Per our ISO 9001:2000 system, material quality starts with the vendor qualification process. Only audited qualified vendors are utilized for procurement. Inspection at EFE starts with receiving inspection of the materials. Commercial goods are verified against the purchase order and go dock to stock. Fabricated materials are passed to inspection for verification per the print. In the production cycle most assembly technicians have been trained and certified as inspectors. The certification is maintained in an access database. As the product is being built, they review and verify the construction per the workmanship standards of IPC, J-Standard, and the sample plan.”
ISO 9001:2000 is a series of standards that is accepted in more than 80 countries around the world. For a company’s quality basis to become registered to the set of standards an accredited third party, such as TUV, conduct an annual audit of the company’s operations against the requirements of the ISO standards. Upon successful completion, the company receives a registration certificate that identifies its quality system as being in compliance. When a company purchases a product or service from an organization that is registered to the ISO 9001:2000 standard, they have full assurance that the quality of what is received will be as expected.
