ISO & UL
WE ARE PROUD TO BE ISO 9001:2015 CERTIFIED AND SUPPLY PARTS THAT ARE RIGOROUSLY TESTED TO COMPLY WITH NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED STANDARDS.
What are ISO 9000 and ISO 9001?
The ISO 9000 family of quality management systems (QMS) is a set of standards that helps ensure organizations meet important regulatory requirements for their products and services. ISO 9000 deals with the fundamentals of QMS and the underlying principles for the family of standards. ISO 9001 deals with the requirements that organizations aiming to meet the standard must fulfill.
Third-party certification provides independent assessment and validation that organizations meet the requirements of ISO 9001. Over one million organizations in over 90 countries worldwide are independently certified, making ISO 9001 one of the most widely used management tools in the world today.
When you purchase a product or service from an organization registered to the appropriate ISO 9000 standard, you can rest assured that the quality of what you receive will be as you expect. SPEP is certified under the latest 2015 revision to ISO 9001, which emphasizes each organization’s particular needs by focusing on accountability, risk management, and continuous improvement.
Why are the Standards so Important?
Many companies require their suppliers to become registered to ISO 9001:2015, and because of this, registered organizations find that their market opportunities have increased. A company’s compliance with ISO 9001:2015 also ensures that a sound quality management system is being utilized, which is beneficial to business operations overall.
Registered companies have had dramatic reductions in customer complaints, significant reductions in operating costs, and increased demand for their products and services. Other benefits can include better working conditions, increased market share, and maximized profits.
ISO 9000 registration is rapidly becoming a must for any company that does business anywhere in the world. The fundamentals of ISO 9000:2015 are universally accepted worldwide and instill confidence between customers, suppliers, and the overall supply chain through mutual understanding of common knowledge.
In an effort to provide our customers with high quality products, Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products carries a variety of components that have been rigorously tested to comply with the nationally recognized safety standards. UL Listed and Recognized components ensure the highest degree of safety and give our customers’ products an important competitive edge. Some items must be tested in their final application to receive final UL certification, but even for these types of products SPEP uses UL rated sub-components like gaskets and O-rings whenever possible.
