ISO 9001 is an international standard that defines requirements for establishing a Quality Management System (QMS) in any organization. Weber has been certified for the last 19 year (since 1998).
Changes to ISO 9001:2015 include the introduction of new terminologies for restructuring some of the information, emphasis on risk-based thinking to enhance the process approach, increased leadership requirements and improved applicability for services.
Achieving ISO 9001:2015 certification is a benchmark for measuring the maturity of the organization’s QMS. Everyone at Weber has been working diligently to put procedures in place to meet the strict requirements of ISO 9001. Emphasis was placed on consistency in our manufacturing processes so that Weber will reliably print labels with the same high quality standards every time.
ISO 9001:2015 helps companies demonstrate to customers that they can offer products and services of consistently good quality. It is less prescriptive than its predecessor, focusing instead on performance. The change is achieved by combining the process approach with risk-based thinking, and employing the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” cycle at all levels in the organization.
Weber's Quality Assurance Manager, Derek Podejko, states, "It’s important because it continues to provide trust between Weber and our customers. The certification provides evidence that Weber is committed to meet customer requirements, which can be accomplished with our quality management system. By identifying and defining our processes to meet ISO 9001:2015 standards, it allows us to stay consistent within our operations. The commitment from upper management allowed us to be certified to the new ISO 9001:2015 quickly and in a professional manner.”
