STANLEY Security has been accredited with ISO 9001:2015, the very latest version of the respected Quality Management Systems standard.
ISO 9001:2015 is awarded when specific criteria for a Quality Management System are met by a given organisation as a result of that business ensuring a structured approach with an increased importance afforded to risk management. The accreditation is based on a number of quality management principles such as a strong customer focus, the motivation of senior management, a defined process approach and demonstrably continual improvement.
For STANLEY Security’s end user customers, ISO 9001:2015 accreditation provides clear proof that its products and services work and meet legal and industry standards and that, if an issue should arise, a process is in place to rectify it and ensure that it doesn’t happen again. It’s also designed to make staff more efficient by standardising systems and procedures, while still allowing for flexibility such that STANLEY can work with customers in a way which suits them.
STANLEY Security has always been committed to delivering quality at all levels, from products through to services, and has been accredited to BS EN ISO 9001:2008 for many years. The move to the more stringent 2015 standard requires a greater focus on all internal and external factors that could impact quality, products and services.
Ross Marotta, STANLEY Security’s compliance manager responsible for the transition to the new standard, explained: “The ISO 9001:2015 accreditation is proof that we can provide customers with consistent, reliable and fit for purpose solutions and services. It provides an assurance that we listen to our customers and respond proactively to their feedback. Customers can also be secure in the knowledge that any issues will be identified and resolved quickly.”
Marotta has reviewed all of STANLEY Security’s documents, processes, policies and procedures to ensure they correspond with actual activities and meet the 2015 standard. He has also implemented training sessions and presentations within management meetings to clearly explain individuals’ responsibilities and what they need to be aware of and monitor in their own teams.
STANLEY Security’s ISO 9001:2015 accreditation holds for a maximum time period of three years. In this three-year period, the company will be subject to mandatory audits to ensure compliance.
ISO 9001:2015 accreditation has been awarded through the National Security Inspectorate. Through the NSI, STANLEY Security is NACOSS Gold approved with respect to the design, installation and maintenance of electronic security systems and Fire Gold approved for the design, installation, commissioning and handover, verification and maintenance of fire detection and alarm systems.
