AFL receives ISO recertifications
ISO 9000:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications were affirmed after third-party recertification audits and annual surveillance.
The Quality Management System (QSM) of AFL's Noyes Test and Inspection Division has been recertified to the ISO 9000:2008 standard, and the Environmental Management System (ESM) was successfully audited and recertified to ISO 14001:2004, the company announced. "To maintain ISO certification, companies must pass a registered third-party recertification audit every three years and a yearly surveillance audit," the company said in a statement announcing the recertifications.
AFL's quality and regulatory compliance manager Mary Ruel said, "With this recertification to ISO 9000:2008, we have achieved more than 15 years of uninterrupted certification to this standard. We are also pleased to have achieved five years of uninterrupted certification to ISO 14001, which demonstrates our goal to minimize the impact of our business and practices to the environment."
