TÜV Rheinland Confirms ISO 9001:2008 Certification

07 April 2014

Further to the monitoring audit performed at Capellen and Taranto early in March 2014, TÜV Rheinland has confirmed ISO 9001:2008 certification of NSPA's Quality Management System.

No nonconformities with the standard were identified during the audit. TÜV Rheinland highlighted in particular the Quality Management System, which was "clearly customer satisfaction-oriented", as well as the continuous improvement of NSPA's processes through "implementation of various communication tools" and the development of a systematic approach to risk identification.

ISO 9001:2008 certification is currently essential in the context of the gradual convergence of NATO Quality Assurance standards (AQAPs) towards the ISO standard.

The next monitoring audit will take place at Capellen in March 2015.
