Pressmark are currently accredited to two ISO quality standards. ISO is the International Organisation for Standardisation that develops and publish international standards. Several certification bodies can perform conformity assessments against these international standards, and at Pressmark, we use the British Standards Institution (BSI) for this process. BSI is the UK’s National Standards Body (NSB) and was the world’s first NSB formed in 1901. By using BSI to assess our conformity, we give confidence to our customers, as BSI is recognised as one of the world’s leading accreditation bodies. This year, ISO TS 16949:2009 transitioned to IATF 16949:2016, and Pressmark again used BSI for certification. The IATF is the International Automotive Task Force and has several key OEM’s as its members.
Our Quality Standards
Here at Pressmark, we work to international quality standards to improve our business processes throughout the entire business. Although we are currently certified to two international standards and have been for over a decade, we will continue to pursue other relevant standards beneficial to all of our stakeholders. These additional standards include ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, which we will achieve over the next 2 years. During 2019, we transitioned to IATF 16949:2016, well before our current certificate expired, ensuring that our automotive customers had no interruption to supply.
ISO 9001 is the most widely recognised standard globally, and Pressmark has held this standard since 2004, helping us meet the expectations and needs of our customers.
Bringing together automotive standards from across Europe and the US, IATF 16949 is the global technical specification and quality management standard for the automotive industry.
Pressmark is currently working towards the ISO 14001 accreditation, the world’s most recognised environmental system. It is envisioned that this will be fully implemented in 2022.
