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 System was approved to ISO 9001:2008 in 2009 by LRQA having taken over from our previous accreditation company. We have been approved altogether since 1994. We passed our certificate renewal audit in July 2015. This is now valid until July 2018.
We have now gone through our Gap Analysis audit by LRQA, which was earlier in July.
We have a clear set of observations and areas for attention to prepare and put into place prior to our next audit.
We have committed to a date in October 2017 to replace our next surveillance audit with a re-certification audit to the new sandard.
We then intend to follow this with re-certification to ISO14001:2015 in early to mid 2018.
Our present certificate for this is valid until September 2018.
1.To be market leader in our areas of speciality

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.
