ELG Carbon Fibre has extended the certification of its quality management system, transitioning to the latest BS:EN 9100 2016 (AS 9100 Revision D) standard.
As part of this conversion, the scope of the quality management system certification was extended to incorporate design and development activities.
The company says this standard highlights its ongoing commitment to ensuring recycled carbon fibre materials are suitable for high volume engineering applications, especially within the automotive sector.
“Operating a rigorous quality management system is fundamental to our being able to deliver consistent, high quality products to our customers," notes Frazer Barnes, Managing Director of ELG Carbon Fibre. "Having this system certified to an internationally recognised standard is important to give our customers the confidence that our materials will meet their needs in high volume production. It also reflects the continuous effort and commitment made by our employees to deliver the highest quality carbon fibre products and conversion technologies.”
In addition to sector-specific changes in the language regarding product safety, counterfeit parts prevention and configuration management, BS:EN 9100 2016 (AS 9100 Revision D) fully incorporates the language of ISO 9001:2015. This means that risk-based thinking and a fuller appreciation of the organisational context are factored into operational strategy and management.
