ASTech passes ISO9001 audit with flying colors
Gaimersheim/Wolfsburg – Following on the heels of the internal audit during calendar week 28 and 30, ASTech underwent the ISO9001 external surveillance audit. With a critical eye, external auditors from TÜV Süd examined not only general issues such as management/resources/risk management, procurement/purchasing and personnel/training management, but also four specific ASTech projects. Here the goal was to determine if the company is adhering to self-defined processes and whether the ISO9001 requirements are being fulfilled.
Thanks to outstanding preparation and the participation of all involved departments, at the end TÜV Süd found no discrepancies. Instead, the auditors provided a long list of positive comments related to areas such as risk management, our EDL tool, the planned introduction of tools for supporting the personnel and controlling departments, personal development opportunities for employees and management, the office facilities in Wolfsburg and various project-specific processes.
According to quality manager Ulrike, who was responsible for the audit, such a satisfactory result was possible only because ASTech operated the entire year properly and in line with the processes and because everyone was so well-prepared and pitched in. Heartfelt thanks go out to everyone again!
All that remains is to wait for the final audit report and then examine and implement any improvement recommendations included in the report. After all, never rest on your laurels.
