Oslo, Norway, October 11th, 2011 – Energy Micro has announced it has gained ISO 9001:2008 registration of its quality management system for the design and manufacture of its range of energy friendly microcontrollers and RF radios. The certificate of registration to the quality standard was awarded to Energy Micro by the certification body Det Norske Veritas (DNV).
Zalina Shaher, Energy Micro’s VP of Operations said, “The process of ISO 9001:2008 certification gives us a great platform to comprehensively test out the way in which the existing Energy Micro Quality Management System had been designed, documented and implemented and moving forward will ensure long term commitment to our continual improvement in quality and customer satisfaction.”
“With no major findings from the document review, through to just a single minor finding in the initial audit, Energy Micro has performed professionally and consistently throughout the certification process,” said the lead auditor for DNV, Ingebjørg Gravlien. “I have been particularly impressed with how quickly such a young company has been able to implement the standard and just how committed its employees are to the latest thinking in quality procedures.”
Published by the International Organisation for Standards, ISO 9001:2008 is the latest and most comprehensive version of the ISO9001 quality standard, an internationally recognised framework for the creation and maintenance of quality management systems aimed at achieving improvements in business performance and customer satisfaction.
