ATLAS paint consultants B.V., the leading inspection and consultancy company, yesterday announced that the company had received the ISO 9001:2008 certification from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) for advising, inspection and surveys of insulation, paint and coating projects.
“Achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification is an important milestone for ATLAS because it demonstrates our commitment to delivering the highest quality services to our costumers with an adherence to a defined set of standards that bear international recognition,” said Nico Röper, Managing director of ATLAS paint consultants.
Published by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, the ISO 9000 family of standards is related to quality management systems and is designed to help organizations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders while meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to the product being developed and/or produced. ISO 9000 pertains to the fundamentals of quality management systems, and ISO 9001:2008 addresses the requirements that organizations must fulfill in order to meet the standard.
Since its inception, ATLAS has maintained a culture of quality and instituted strict processes for ensuring its quality policy is followed throughout the organization. The ATLAS quality policy is based on the principles of ensuring business continuity, delivering high quality service to customers, developing and supporting skilful personnel. ISO 9001:2008 was the natural choice for a formal framework to ensure ATLAS maintains high quality operations while continuing to grow.
