D – As confirmed by the certification organisation, Intechnica Cert, Schneider Schreibgeräte fulfils all requirements of the ISO 9001:2015, which has asserted itself worldwide as the assessment benchmark for quality management systems. After successfully passing the audit, the certificate issued applies for all business areas of the company. The headquarters and the subsidiaries of the company were certified.
The international management norm ISO 9001:2015 lays down the requirements for the quality management system so that products and services are provided, which fulfil the legal requirements. The certification confirms that all of Schneider’s processes comply with the international standards and that the company continually monitors, tests and improves them. This includes, among others, the conformity with the legal requirements and stipulations relevant to the organisation, the documentation and transparent representation of the process and workflows within the organisation, as well as the optimum implementation of resources and measurable quality goals for a fixed period.
Furthermore, Schneider has also been EMAS-certified since 1998, which is considered to be the strictest environmental management system worldwide. By having both management systems audited and the related introduction of the “High_Level_Structure”, Schneider was able to unite the quality and environmental requirements (ISO 9001/14001 and EMAS) into one integrated management system. As such, the planning, control, monitoring and improvement of all quality and environment-related processes or workflows are bundled in and steered by one system.
