Quality & Standards
We are passionate about the quality of our products and services, and our commitment to quality is at the heart of everything we do. Our quality management system helps us to exceed customer expectations and meet regulatory requirements in terms of the performance, reliability, and delivery of our products and services.
We regularly monitor and review our quality systems and processes to ensure that they effectively meet the expectations of all our stakeholders. There is a focus on risk-based thinking and accountability in all our organisational processes that help improve communications, efficiency, and continuous improvement.
Our quality policy, effective communication and investment in training, provides every employee with a clear understanding of how to fulfil our commitment to quality. Below is a list of our quality certifications.
We are committed to providing customers with service of the highest possible level of quality. In order to achieve this, we are continually improving processes, products and services. The implementation of the quality policy is the responsibility of all staff members, with overall responsibility residing with the Board of Director. It is required that all staff recognise and accept our philosophy of quality service delivery, accepting accountability for their own output.
