ISO Standards at Crystran

As an ISO 9001 registered company, we are aiming to give customers, suppliers and any other visitors to our site an insight into our philosophy with regard to quality. We are a growing organisation that uses our QMS as the main driving force for the creation of profitable business by the continuous improvement in customer product and service. All of our staff have seen the benefits of the QMS over many years and are committed to its continual improvement.

Crystran's Quality Management System was approved to ISO 9001:2008 in 2009 by LRQA having taken over from our previous accreditation company. We were approved to ISO9001:2015 in October 2017. We have been approved altogether since 1994 (to BS5750), 6 months after the creation of Crystran as a stand alone company from Merck (previously BDH Chemicals).


We have now had our 2 day Focus & Transiton Audits on 18th & 19th October.

I am pleased to announce that subject to technical Review, transition to ISO 9001:2015 has been recommended by our assessor.

Once confirmed we should receive our new certificate within the next 6 - 8 weeks.

Our present certificate for this is valid until September 2018.


We have now received our new certificate which is avaiable on request or to download from this page by following the link below.


We have  a Gap Audit to ISO 14001:2015 scheduled for Monday 19th March.

Our Transition Audit to the new version of the standard is scheduled for 9th - 10th July 2018.

Company Wide Objectives:
1.To be market leader in our areas of speciality
2.To deliver on time every time
3.To be competitive on price
4.To deliver to specification
5.To build on our reputation for integrity
Measured Objective:

In order to ensure that we are continually improving our service we monitor factors including on-time deliveries, number of days delivered late, customer complaints, supplier performance and stock levels.
Below are the continuing results for our on time delivery performance.

On Time Deliveries
2015 showed a significant  improvement in customer delivery times up to a record 98.1% from 2014 (94%). We had taken on 3 more staff in 2014 including a new General Manager, who introduced several performance & improvement initiatives and techniques, which contributed to our success.
2016 maintained good customer delivery performance with an average of 97.9% for the year, slightly reduced from 2015 by 0.2% due to a couple of lower months in June & July but still above our 95% set objective.
2017 ended with an average of 97.3%, which was slightly down on 2016 but still above our set objective which was increased to 97% from the previous 95%.

We monitor how poor performance by our suppliers can adversely affect our on-time deliveries to our customers. We always try to work with our suppliers by involving them in our target setting and finding ways to reduce lead-times. Ultimately we may have to look for better suppliers. In some instances this is exactly what we have had to do.
In 2017 late deliveries to us from our suppliers accounted for 58.8% of all the late deliveries to our customers.
