ISO 9001:2015 certification affords PACOM “a competitive edge”

PACOM, a STANLEY Products and Solutions company and provider of security and access control solutions, has confirmed its commitment to Best in Class quality management by gaining the prestigious ISO 9001:2015 certification. This significant achievement is part of the company’s continuing efforts to make its processes as agile as possible and set the standard in what is an increasingly competitive market.

Since it was first published in 1987, ISO 9001 has become the world’s most established quality management framework and is currently used by over one million companies across the globe. PACOM was previously certified to ISO 9001:2008, which ceased to apply from the middle of last month, and began its transition process to ISO 9001:2015 well in advance of the deadline. Certified through an external certification body, a rigorous audit was conducted on PACOM’s quality management systema to assess the company’s dedication to the ongoing improvement of its processes.

“A desire to operate to the highest standards runs through everything we do and ISO 9001:2015 rubber stamps our credentials through better integration and alignment of our internal processes,” explained James Ford, PACOM’s marketing director, in conversation with Risk Xtra. “This, in turn, leads to increased productivity and results and defines a standard of operation that exceeds our customers’ expectations. It also helps to ensure that they consider us as the security and access control solutions supplier of choice.”

ISO9001

ISO 9001:2015 takes into account a number of principles and is based on ISO’s Annex SL, which consists of ten clauses that act as a basic set of generic requirements to follow, in addition to the ‘Plan, Do, Check, Act’ structure pioneered by W Edwards Deming. The standard makes companies assess risks, identify opportunities for improvement and effectively manage and measure performance across all levels of the business. As such, senior management must now be able to demonstrate a greater commitment to – and direct involvement in – their company’s quality management system.

Ford concluded: “I would like to congratulate the team for all the hard work that has gone into attaining ISO 9001:2015. It’s a milestone achievement that reflects our growth and development. Our culture of continuous improvement is vital in maintaining a market leading position, while the discipline and framework provided by our quality management system creates an environment that will help us to achieve our corporate objectives. Just as importantly, it means our customers have complete assurance that PACOM operates to the highest standards and that we meet all regulatory requirements for our products and services, which we will strive to maintain and improve upon.”
