ISO certification for Tatneft tyre plants
Russia’s Tatneft reports that two tyre factories operated by its Tatneft-Neftekhim management company, OAO "Nizhnekamskshina" and OOO "Nizhnekamsk truck tires", have been certified according to ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/TS 16949:2009. In announcing the plants’ ISO certification, Tatneft states this accomplishment is “evidence of the successful completion of [a] special audit conducted after the reorganization of the tyre factories.”
The truck tyre factory became a limited liability company in July 2011, and Tatneft comments that personnel, quality systems and audits were implemented prior to this. The outcome, the company says, is improvements to both the structure of the company’s administrative units and its system of quality management. “The results of the special audit have demonstrated that the activity of enterprises in the new control conditions of tyre business with the expansion of certification for the design of products is in line with international standards,” Tatneft reported in a press release.
