Our strict quality control process was put in place to verify the integrity of our processes and products and ensure they meet specifications. Our own individually created protocol book contains detailed steps to follow to complete the assembly of certain components in each station.
All components are checked prior to assembly, and if they do not meet the required specs or are damaged or faulty, a Technical Instruction for Quality (TIQ) report is done and the component is sent for correction or replacement. By implementing these quality standards throughout our organization, we ensure the quality and safety of every product we distribute. We are also proud to confirm that all of these processes have ensured our accreditation and maintenance of the ISO 9001:2008 code of good practice and/or system.
