We are proud to inform that a1qa has been certified as per ISO 9001:2015 standard after the third-party certifying agency has completed an audit in the company’s premises.
ISO 9001 is the quality management system standard that ensures the company’s services consistently comply with customers’ requirements. Previously, a1qa obtained ISO 9001:2008, and this year it was replaced by the new updated version.
To obtain certification, the a1qa quality system was firstly audited internally against all of the specific standard requirements. Only after that, the independent accredited certifier stepped in. After the rigorous audit was completed, a1qa was certified to ISO 9001:2015.
Svetlana Pravdina, CEO, comments on the accomplishment:
“ISO 9001 compliance is vital for a1qa for several reasons. It requires business to introduce transparent business metrics to describe all the processes. The goal is to understand and manage the processes better. Analyzing the metrics, we get to know how the company is developing and what should be done to enable further progress. Through quality auditing, the ISO 9001 QMS guarantees the company stays focused on its goals.
Many a1qa potential clients cite ISO 9001 certification a “must have” and we should be certified to respond to their requests.
ISO 9001 Quality Management System also provides employees with clear job descriptions, performance metrics.
I want to grasp the opportunity to thank the entire a1qa team for their notable contribution towards this aim. I would also like to note that the efforts should be continuous and we should keep doing our best to implement logical and proven approach to the management of our internal activities and consistently achieve customer satisfaction.”
