Prism Electronics Ltd has achieved ongoing accreditation of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 for its quality and environmental working policies and practices.
“In being one of the first UK contract manufacturers to adopt ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 as far back as April 2017, we had clearly demonstrated our commitment to quality and environmental management systems,” says Dave Dawson, head of business development at Prism Electronics. “Now, by further achieving a seamless re-accreditation of these latest standards, we have now also demonstrated our ability to achieve, adhere and in many areas exceed the requirements of the standards. Notably, all of these milestones have been completed before the official implementation deadline of September 14, 2018.”
Richard Walton, technical director and quality manager at the company, adds, “Involvement of people across the organization enabled smooth adoption of the standards with a clear message that we take a leading and proactive approach to quality and environmental management while reaping the many benefits that the new standards bring.”
