The first graduate of Chemular, Inc.'s, Liquid Bones Ready Quality Management System certification program has become the first e-liquids manufacturer in the United States to achieve ISO 9001:2015 accreditation from an international certification body. Chemular introduced the ground-breaking training and implementation program in February, and Miami-based Vapor Shark is the first manufacturer to follow up its completion of the program with international accreditation.
"With the help of Chemular, we were able to integrate their Liquid Bones QMS into our own company policies in order to create an internationally recognized set of quality standards," says Brandon Leidel, Chief Operating Officer at Vapor Shark. "Using the Liquid Bones QMS, we were able to secure the very prestigious ISO 9001:2015 accreditation in a very short period of time."
Vapor Shark's implementation of the Liquid Bones QMS underwent a rigorous audit this month by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) and achieved accreditation with no nonconformities noted.
"This is a stellar achievement not only for Vapor Shark, but for Chemular and for the industry as a whole," says Chris Ford, Chemular's Vice President of Quality and Compliance Services and Chief Marketing Officer. "Vapor Shark has taken its approach to safety and raised the bar for the entire industry. As a leader, Vapor Shark is now the de facto model in world-class manufacturing, paving the way for other e-liquids manufacturers."
The Liquid Bones QMS is an ISO 9001:2015-compliant quality management system specifically designed to meet the needs of e-liquids manufacturers as they strive to comply with the strict requirements for vaping products in the U.S. under FDA’s Deeming Regulation and the European Tobacco Products Directive (TPD2).
The Liquid Bones Ready program takes an e-liquids manufacturer through the implementation process with Chemular QMS consultants on site, providing training to the entire organization while walking top management through the implementation and final certification processes. Because Liquid Bones QMS is specifically written for e-liquids manufacturers, Chemular can implement the system in six to ten weeks.
"This accomplishment validates our position that Chemular's Liquid Bones QMS is the gold standard for the e-cig and e-liquids industry, providing the systems and processes necessary to comply with regulatory requirements while reducing or eliminating errors and improving customer satisfaction," says Ford.
