Global Marine Systems Limited is pleased to announce that it has succeeded in upgrading its ISO 9001 certification to the new International Quality Standard ISO 9001:2015. Demonstrating its continued commitment to being at the forefront of developments in this discipline, Global Marine is one of the first companies in the industry to achieve accreditation to the revised quality standard.
The company’s early transition to the standard, ahead of the September 2018 deadline, provides a number of key benefits for both the business and, in turn, customers. Certification to ISO 9001:2015 provides assurance that Global Marine has evolved its management system to meet the growing needs of customers and other key stakeholders, identifies future customer needs, improves customer retention with better customer service and addresses supply chain management more effectively.
William Christie, Certification Director, AJA Registrars Ltd, said “Congratulations to all at Global Marine for achieving certification to ISO9001:2015. The changes within this revision of the standard required Global Marine not only to demonstrate a quality management system was in place, but that the system was designed and continually applied to provide the leadership team with valuable information in order to react positively to the increasingly changing business situations. This new approach to business risk management will provide confidence to their existing and potential customers of their commitment to future success.”
Lorraine Harrison, Quality & Compliance Manager at Global Marine added, “The involvement of people across the organisation, together with support from the senior leadership team, has enabled a smooth transition from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015. By staying ahead of the curve, Global Marine sends a clear message to all customers, both current and future, that it is taking a leading and proactive approach to quality management.”
This accreditation shows a continuing trend of excellence and commitment throughout the business to both Quality and Health & Safety standards. This success follows the recent ROSPA ‘Order of Distinction’ awarded for outstanding performance in health and safety over a period of 17 consecutive years.
