Sequans was recently awarded a certificate of approval from Lloyd’s Register certifying that its management system has met the quality requirements of the new ISO 9001:2015 standard. The ISO standard is the most popular and most commonly used quality assurance standard in the world and companies achieving certification have been independently audited to ensure that their management and organizational processes are of consistent high quality. ISO (International Standardization Organization) 9001:2015 is an update to the previous ISO 9001:2008 standard to which Sequans was also certified.
The ISO 9001 standard requires that companies demonstrate high levels of quality and efficiency in several areas including, organizational procedures, risk management, commitment to customers, effective planning, implementation, resource management, measurement and analysis, and continual improvement.
Specifically, the new 2015 standard puts more emphasis on leadership, risk management, and on measuring and assessing the input and output of production processes. It also requires companies to take into account the needs and expectations of interested parties and show that the organization understands and responds to all parties concerned, including suppliers, personnel, shareholders, legislative bodies, and society, as well as customers.
“We are committed to high quality at Sequans and proud to have met the ISO 9001:2015 standard requirements,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “This achievement demonstrates that we are always focused on performing at the highest level possible, not only in management of processes, but in delivering technology and products that are truly innovative and valuable.”
