AIM Plastics, Inc., is pleased to announce to all of our customers that we have successfully passed our third party certification audit to the new ISO 13485:2016 and ISO 9001:2015 standard. Previously, we had been certified to the ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 9001:2008 standards. Even though the deadline to get upgraded to the new standard is January 2019 for the 13485 standard and September 2018 for the 9001 standard, we decided to get an early start and hence were able to accomplish this task much sooner.
Amongst other things, the new standard focuses more on better control of processes with a greater emphasis on managing risk at each process. Over the last few months, our management team along with appropriate involvement from floor personnel reviewed all our existing processes and procedures. Where needed, positive changes were made with the intention of not only meeting the requirements of the new standard, but more importantly, in ensuring our customers continually keep receiving quality products within the committed timeframe.
As our quality policy states, we are committed to providing products and services that meet the needs and expectations of our customers. And we achieve this by:
· Complying with specified requirements, including applicable regulatory requirements, and
· Maintaining and continuously improving the effectiveness of our quality management system.
This upgrade audit was part of our commitment to continually put in practice what we state in our quality policy. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
