Level 3 Inspection Achieves 100% Compliance to New ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 Certification
JUPITER, Fla., Jan. 6, 2010 — Level 3 Inspection LLC (L3I) is proud to announce that it has successfully completed the Quality Management System (QMS) re-certification by meeting or exceeding all of the requirements for ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100 Revision B Certification under the new updated standards of the global quality and aerospace standards. L3I again passed their ISO/AS audit with 100% compliance and zero non-compliance issues.
Throughout the last year of utilizing the company’s embedded QMS, and with the proper management reviews, Vice President of Quality & Engineering Scott McAfee led the refinement of the comprehensive QMS documentation for procedures and processes that covered the entire L3I business offerings. McAfee elected to create the company’s QMS system completely online (with proper login security), for ready access from anywhere, enhanced ease of editing and use, and because the company is strongly promoting its “green” initiatives, which include being a completely paperless business enterprise.
In late December 2008, the initial QMS audit was performed over the course of the two-day comprehensive evaluation. The company, its QMS system, and its implementation/usage of the system all received the 100% compliance rating.
In November 2009, the company again met with their auditor to review the completeness, correctness, and compliance of the original QMS. L3I’s management team, led by McAfee, held their annual management meeting to review both the QMS system and the actual documented results from implemented procedures for the hundreds of projects they have completed over the past year. Yet again, all aspects of this quality system received the 100% compliance rating.
“This world-class international quality standard was important to us and our clients for our immediate business expansion plans,” said Bill Greene, Vice President of Business Development. “There are several prospects and clients in the aerospace, orthopedic, and other industries that require the ISO certification in order to qualify to engage in business. We wanted to exceed that standard and get our AS certification while we were at it, since this market is so diligent and conscientious,” continued Mr. Greene.
L3I’s updated certificate, which includes applicability to Computer Aided Quality Inspection, Product Modernization, CAD Modeling and Reverse Engineering, is posted on their web site, http://www.level3inspection.com, along with the compliment of their other qualifications and certifications for excellence in performing their dimensional and geometric inspection services business.
