Yet another successful external audit: ISO9001:2015 Reaccreditation
Friday August 14, 2020
We have recently undergone the annual audit by our external accrediting body for ISO9001:2015 accreditation. We are pleased to say that the external auditor found zero non conformances with the management of our system, and we had a record low number of part non conformances for the year, all of which were successfully resolved. You can click the ISO9001:2015 logo in our footer to download our current certificate if you require it for your own QMS.
Our Managing director Paddy Lightfoot had this to say on yet another successful external audit:
“For many – a quality system is seen as either ‘only for the big boys’ or getting in the way of getting the job done, to others it’s a tick box exercise. At Hydromar right from starting out with our initial accreditation back in 2009, we have developed a system that work for us. It helps us deliver consistency, not easy when you have multiple customers all with different requirements; what is acceptable for an opera house props department is very different from an aerospace customer! It constantly pushes us to refine our processes and eliminate room for those human errors that we know we will never wholly eradicate, but we are working on it. Mostly it’s a team effort, everyone engaging to make it effective rather than a dusty set of manuals that get dusted off for the audit. The accreditation is just a piece of paper, it’s the people who work the system that make it worthwhile and a sign of confidence for our customers.”
