Custom Fittings have earned and solidified a reputation worldwide for delivering nothing but the highest standards across our range of Hose Fittings & adaptors. Being ISO 9001:2008 certified has helped us gain this reputation.
What is ISO 9001:2008 accreditation anyway?
Simply put, ISO 9001:2008 is the world’s leading and most established quality assurance framework. At Custom Fittings, we’re proud of our ISO 9001:2008 certification, we have been ISO approved since April 1989, this reassures our customers that anything they order from our manufacturing base in West Yorkshire is made to the highest possible standards. This certification covers our entire stock range of fittings and adptors as well as any bespoke fittings you have made by Custom Fittings. Of course, we have a great track record for customer service and delivering excellent products, but we understand how rightly discerning new customers can be, and we feel this gives an extra level of assurance that our products are among the best you’ll find worldwide.
How Did Custom Fittings get accredited?
These standards are part of the wider ISO 9000 series of standards, which are adopted by almost a million organisations spanning some 175 countries across the globe. ISO 9001:2008 in particular is concerned with effective quality management, and also wider operations management, ensuring that manufacturing takes place at the highest possible standard. It sets out guidelines for businesses and works to protect and benefit consumers everywhere. In order to qualify for a ISO 9001:2008 accreditation, we had to demonstrate that we could consistently and satisfactorily meet the needs of all of our customers while incorporating regulatory requirements. We created an internal Quality Manual to meet the requirements of the standard. This is not only
Who audits the auditor?
The accreditation also involves internal and external audits to ensure that operations and procedures are streamlined, safe documented so our customers can be assured in the knowledge that our products are not only made to the highest standards, but are made of the right materials and in the right manner. The internal is carried out every 6 months by our QA manager. Our annual 3 day external audit carried out by our regulating body BVQI makes sure that we are adhering to the standards set out in or own quality manual but also to the quality management requirements set out within ISO 9001:2008.
