Farmington, NY (Vocus) April 27, 2009
EtQ is pleased to announce that its Development Center has successfully been re-certified to ISO 9001:2008 certification, after an extensive audit conducted by Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS).
EtQ's Development Center is responsible for the development of software platforms and application suites to achieve and maintain compliance with Quality, Environmental, and Health and Safety management system requirements. Part of the objectives of the audit were to:
- Confirm that the management system conforms with all the requirements of the audit standard,
- Confirm that the organization has effectively implemented the planned management system,
- Confirm that the management system is capable of achieving the organization's policy objectives
After conducting a full audit of the quality management system (QMS) at the EtQ Development Center, the SGS audit team concluded that EtQ has established and maintained its QMS in line with the requirements of the ISO 9001:2008 standard.
A large part of EtQ's success in maintaining a strong quality system lies in its broad range of products.
