When it comes to industries, such as machine manufacturing, standards ensure consistency. Whether its consistency in the products we make, the reliability, safety, quality, or even being environmentally friendly; standards provide a uniform starting point for everyone. Without standards, we would constently be dealing with parts that are poor quality, do not fit, unreliable, or even incompatible with the equipment we already own. When machinery components function together properly and safely, that is because they follow the standards set for that device.
The ISO is the organization tasked with setting the standards for thousands of industries around the world. Their standards make the developement, manufacturing and supply of products and services more efficient, safer, and cleaner. The ISO also facilitates trade between countries to ensure fairness, as well as, providing solutions to common industry problems.
By adhering to ISO set standards, suppliers are able to develop and offer products and services meeting specifications that have wide international acceptance in their industry. New technologies are designed to already be compatible within the sector. With the help of standards consumers often have several choices for services and products.
ISO standards provide everyone with technological, economic, and societal benefits. Hydromat, Inc. is proud to be an ISO certified company.
ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization
Needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
All requirements of ISO 9001:2000 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size and product provided.
Where any requirement(s) of ISO 9001:2008 cannot be applied due to the nature of an organization and its product, this can be considered for exclusion.
Where exclusions are made, claims of conformity to ISO 9001:2008 are not acceptable unless these exclusions are limited to requirements within Clause 7, and such exclusions do not affect the organization's ability, or responsibility, to provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
