This most recent ISO 9001:208 audit was a re-certification where the auditing organization (registrar International Standards Authority Inc.) reviewed Chassis Plans’ quality plan to half of the ISO 9001:2008 standard. The auditor felt our core processes are sound and he was generous in his praise for our systems and team.
The next audit is in November and is a full re-certification where all elements of the standard will be audited.
Periodic surveillance audits are a requirement for maintaining ISO 9001:2008 registration. External surveillance audits verify that the organization has an effective quality management system that meets all the requirements of the internationally recognized ISO 9001:2008 standard.
