QA / QC
“Quality is never a coincidence: it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skilful execution.”
> John Ruskin 1819-1900, writer and social critic
Reliability and quality of products, processes and services have become the vital ingredients of success. It has become the standard of Spaans Babcock.
But what does that mean? To Spaans Babcock providing quality means providing both internal and external customers with wastewater treatment products and services that meet all requirements and expectations. Spaans Babcock is contentiously being subject to internal audits to push themselves to become better and to reach the highest level possible.
Spaans Babcock is fully audited and accredited to ISO 9001 and SCC2008/5.1.
Since 1998 Spaans Babcock bv has been certified with the quality label ISO9001. In 2019 the auditors of Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance have conducted their 3-yearly certification review which resulted again in a renewal of the ISO9001:2015 certification.
The ISO9001:2015 standard requires greater attention to quality management; the new standard provides a company insight in the connection between product quality and concern success, contributes to a larger measure of customer satisfaction and to improvement of management systems.
Spaans Babcock bv is SCC**-certified since 1999.
The SCC**-certification is developed to test the safety control systems of servicing companies in an objective and structured way.
The SCC**-certification can be compared with the OHSAS18001 certification. Spaans Babcock bv meets all the requirements for the SCC** certification and passes the yearly audit every time successfully!
