McLean, VA — March 19, 2017 – DGC International announces that the company has transitioned to the ISO 9001:2015 management system (MS). DGC International is audited by BSI Group (also known in the United Kingdom market as the British Standards Institution), an official accreditation body for ISO 9001 standards. BSI Group is the world’s largest certification body. BSI certifies approximately 60,000 locations in over 124 countries and operates across the UK, CEMEA, Asia Pacific (including Japan and China) and the Americas.
This early transition demonstrates DGC International’s dedication to continual improvement of our organization, and our commitment to our customers.
Globally recognized and respected, ISO 9001:2015 standards are set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an independent, non-governmental membership organization and the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards. ISO is made up of 163 member countries that are the national standards bodies around the world, with a Central Secretariat that is based in Geneva, Switzerland.
“Our early ISO 9001:2015 transition is a result of our continued customer-based focus,” said Ayman Bekdash, Vice President, Operations. “We are proud of our team for completing this transition to improve our services and products to our customers. ISO 9001:2015 drives significant improvement, embedding risk mitigation and an improved responsive customer experience that is the heart of our organization.”
ISO 9001:2015 standards specify organizational requirements in documentation, procedures, processes, policies and operations. Some of the major changes include a new high-level structure and greater emphasis on risk and management responsibilities.
