GWT MAINTAINS ISO/AS91OO REGISTRATION FOR 19TH STRAIGHT YEAR

Written by gwt on . Posted in News

This year’s audit by our registrar NSF-ISR was particularly challenging for a number of reasons… the first one being that GWT had to comply with the latest ISO and AS91OO standard upgrades that take us to 2015 and 2016 respectively. Secondly, over the past 19 years of compliance, our original Quality Manual’s organization and configuration needed to be updated to totally match the most current standards. Not only did we pass the audit with flying colors but we also have a brand new Quality Manual that has a realigned and reformatted, fresh look that is easier to use and apply. Huge thanks to Derek Bannon, our Quality Manager, for successfully navigating us through this process.
