ISO standards are created by an international standards-setting organization. Accreditation is achieved by having regular audits performed by a third party accreditation body, which looks to ensure Aspen is meeting the requirements of the standards. Accreditation to standards such as these helps our customers in confirming or recognizing the competence of our company.
ISO 9001 is the standard that outlines the requirements of a Quality Management System. Aspen Research Corporation is accredited to ISO 9001 under the scope of Contract Manufacturing of Polymeric Materials. Aspen’s quality policy for ISO 9001 is as follows:
We will deliver quality products with a commitment to customer satisfaction by creating empowered teams focused on innovation to drive continuous improvement.
ISO 17025 is the standard that outlines the general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. Aspen’s Analytical Laboratory is accredited for testing under this standard. Aspen’s quality policy for ISO 17025 is as follows:
ARC delivers 100 percent on time, defensible analytical results that our clients can reliably use to solve their problems and enhance their business.
Aspen’s fulfillment of ISO 17025 and ISO 9001 requirements means our company meets technical competence requirements as well as management system requirements. Standards such as these ensure that we consistently deliver technically valid test results for our Analytical customers, and high quality materials for our Production customers.
