Champion Brands has received an official renewal certification for ISO 9001:2015 compliance from DEKRA, its official registrar, and completed the required audits with zero non-conformities, the company announced. This re-certified award as an ISO compliant company is authorized until Sept. 2022.
ISO certification is a seal of approval from a third-party governing body that Champion Brands, LLC meets the international standards of excellence published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Champion has maintained this achievement since first receiving the ISO certification in 2004.
The review process to obtain the ISO 9001:2015 certificate for a Quality Management System, specifies that it must meet the requirements of its interested parties through the processes of the purchase of raw materials, blending, blow molding, production, packaging and distribution of products such as lubricants, automotive chemicals and brake fluid to their customers.
ISO 9001:2015 provides the most current criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the lubricant family that can be certified. This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and involvement of top management, the process approach and continuous improvement. Using ISO 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn provide many business benefits, the company said.
