Metflex is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the ISO9001:2015 quality assurance accreditation. Our new certificate issued by BSI is proudly displayed in our reception.
Metflex recently made the strategic decision to upgrade its certified ISO9001:2008 Quality system to the latest :2015 standard. This was successfully achieved in March this year. Within the QMS (Quality Management System) scope: “The manufacture of Precision Rubber Components, including customised tools and material development services”, The Metflex quality team provided guidance in relation to requirements of certification.
As Metflex manufacture components for Subsea and Offshore Energy, as well as Gas diaphragms for the growing Smart Meter sector of the gas industry, Risk management and data driven decision making is key to our current daily decision making process. We are pleased the new Quality system adopts these philosophies, as well as improved focus through management commitment and leadership.
Metflex were audited by BSI who are accredited through UKAS. By achieving transition early, demonstrates Metflex’s commitment to Quality and continuous improvement.
We are delighted how the 2015 accreditation ensures and guides us to apply risk based thinking. Metflex has used statistical process control for many of our operations for many years. It’s a clear example of how it’s possible to gain the maximum amount of knowledge from sampling. Our company has been dedicated to producing rubber components to the tightest of specifications for many years.
So using statistics and key performance indicators allows us to concentrate on quality. However risk based thinking has channeled Metflex into maximizing resources right across the company. The standard has a high focus on how organizations meet the expectations and needs of all interested parties.
It has been a useful journey and Metflex have worked hard to use and be inspired by the many good practices that we see in other standards such as the Aerospace AS9100 or the Automotive standard TS16949
