MAG45 has received its ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems certification. Major changes to the ISO standards include the High Level Structure (HLS). This provides an identical chapter structure with common core requirements, terms and definitions. Within the HLS, the context analysis is more important and there is more attention for compliance management. Management is required to show leadership and commitment by making the link between the management system and the processes of the organization.
There is increased focus for risk-based thinking and on continuous improvement. This helps to ensure a more integrated global focus on improvement initiatives, specifically on improving the MAG45’s distributor partnership and end-user customer satisfaction. “Increasing MAG45’s focus in these areas will help ensure accountability at all levels of the organization and facilitate the transition of top-level goals into tactical level action plans”, said Bauke Zeinstra, Managing Director of MAG45.
In the beginning of next year, MAG45 will also renew the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System certifications to ensure conformity with their environmental policy.
