Access Irrigation is pleased to announce that it has been accredited with the prestigious ISO 9001 quality standard.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 is the most up-to-update standard of its kind and focuses on quality management systems and performance. It assists companies in developing a management system that aligns quality with their wider business strategy. There is a focus on risk-based thinking and accountability in all organizational processes that helps improve communications, efficiency, and implementation of continuous improvement.
For any company, the road to certification requires time and commitment. Access began their internal preparation for certification in Autumn 2017, by evaluating their existing procedures and aligning them with the new requirements. Since their internal documentation and procedures were already well established they only needed to make minor changes to their quality manual and overall processes and procedures to meet the new standards.
Managing Director, Matthew Pearce, said that “achieving the quality standard recognises the hard work and professionalism of everyone in the company. The standard ensures that our processes are robust and that we can focus on continually improving our service to customers.”
