ATS Euromaster has gained the latest ISO 9001 certification a full two and a half years ahead of deadline – making it the only national tyre and vehicle service provider to hold the highest award for quality management. New regulations mean that by September 2018, organisations that hold current ISO 9001 certification will have to prove that they meet the more stringent requirements of ISO 9001:2015.
ATS Euromaster decided to upgrade its existing certification significantly earlier than required, after an audit confirmed that ATS Euromaster was already exceeding the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 in many areas.
Jerome Monsaingeon, group managing director, ATS Euromaster said: “This is a great result for our customers as it is independent proof that they can trust us to deliver the best quality services, every time.”
So far, fewer than 10 per cent of certified companies have secured the latest version, placing ATS Euromaster in a leadership role. Central to the requirements is demonstrable involvement by senior managers in the quality management system, something that has been the case within ATS Euromaster for several years, above and beyond the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard.
ATS Euromaster’s certification follows its recent RoSPA Gold Award for health and safety, which it has now received for the third year running. cja
