ISO-9001 Certification to ISO-9001:2015
As early as 2001, we had achieved ISO-9001 certification - the international reference for best practices in quality management. To achieve ISO-9001 certification, companies must specify what they do to:
- Meet their customers' quality requirements
- Apply all relevant regulatory requirements
- Enhance customer satisfaction
- Ensure continuous improvements in line with these objectives
Sems and Specials has achieved QSLM CAGE Code 5B4N5 Class 2 Land and Sea certified status with the United States government since 2011. To achieve this status, we have to demonstrate that the controls which we have in-place and in-use on a daily basis comply with the established QSL Criteria, providing maximum assurance that the products procured conform to specification and contractual requirements.
FQA Compliant - Certification & Traceability
Sems and Specials strives for transparency and aims to reassure it's customers through it's quality programs - customers can rest assured that our quality is tried, tested and can be relied upon, no matter the application. As such, Sems and Specials ensures it is fully compliant with the Fastener Quality Act (FQA). The enactment of the Fastener Quality Act (FQA) was the result of a number of high-profile fastener failures in the 1980s, a subsequent investigation found shortcomings in industry standards, quality control and safety inspection. The FQA was enacted to protect public safety by:
- Requiring fasteners sold in commerce conform to the specifications to which they are represented to be manufactured
- Providing for accreditation of laboratories engaged in fastener testing
- Requiring inspection, testing and certification in accordance with standardized methods.
