Zenith Technologies achieves new quality accreditation – ISO9001 2015

Operating in the life sciences industry means that quality is of paramount importance.

IS0 9001-2015We’ve held ISO9001 certification for the last 13 years and we’re delighted to announce that we’ve recently been awarded the new 2015 certification, well ahead of the September 2018 deadline.

The ISO9001 accreditation demonstrates that organisations have proven their quality management systems (QMS) are as effective as possible through continual improvement and regular assessments. This is especially important for us as a qualified supplier whose reputation for quality is an essential component of our customers’ regulatory compliance effort.

We worked hard throughout 2016 to upgrade our QMS structure in accordance with the new standard. By introducing a review of internal and external risks at lead team level and integrating our QMS processes with our top-level strategic objectives, we have been able to build on our existing systems to meet the new requirements.

Testament to the hard work of the team, Zenith Technologies was acknowledged as an example of best practice by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) and our European quality manager, Avril O’Brien, was asked to deliver a talk on Zenith’s transition to the 2015 standard at the NSAI conference, in Cork, in February 2017.

She said: “Achieving the ISO9001: 2015 certification has been a really interesting process for us. We’re committed to ensuring that our QMS delivers the highest quality products and services to our customers and contributes meaningfully to the continued success of Zenith Technologies as an organisation.

“Successfully completing the upgrade to ISO9001: 2015 so early in the cycle will be invaluable to us and we believe our rapid adoption sets us apart in the industry.

The proactive approach of our management team demonstrates our commitment to quality and continuous improvement. We look forward to continuing to deliver value to our customers throughout the 3-year certification cycle and beyond. Congratulations to the whole Zenith team!”
