Rimera's Chelyabinsk Plant Gets ISO 9001-2008 Certification

The inspection audit for conformance to ISO 9001-2008 Quality Management Systems – Requirements was conducted by a team of TÜV International RUS auditors at the Chelyabinsk and Magnitogorsk sites of the plant. Pipe Bends Plant has been an ISO 9001-2008 certified vendor since 2006. Annual independent audits make it possible to evaluate QMS performance and measure the extent to which it conforms to the corporate quality policy. The audit focused on such aspects as production, quality control, technical preparation of production facilities, staff management, infrastructure and production environment management, metrological resources and other processes.
ISO international standards provide strategic tools for cost savings through lean production, higher performance, and expansion to new markets. Over a million companies in 170 countries use ISO 9001-2008. The standard is centered on increased attention to customer needs and constant improvement. Conformance to ISO 9001-2008 guarantees that consumers can expect products and services of a consistently high quality.
“Professionals have rated highly the completeness of reporting data submitted by us in all areas and have decided to prolong our QMS conformance certificate until 2015. We have also started implementing the recommendations they issued,” says Pipe Bends Plant Executive Director Leonid Malamud, adding: “It is the last ISO audit of our plant this year. Last year we successfully passed audits for conformance to API standards and Gazprom STO 9001-2012 corporate standards.”
In 2014, recertification audits of the quality management system for conformance to ISO standards also took place at Rimera's mechanical engineering enterprises – Almetyevsk-based Alnas Plant (GOST ISO 9001-2011) and Izhevsk-based Izhneftemash plant (ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/TS 29001).
