Swiftships received its ISO 9001:2015 certification on July 7th, 2016 after successfully meeting quality management systems requirements needed to retain ISO 9001 registration at its production facilities (shipyards) in Louisiana, USA. Jeff LeLeux, President, commented on being production ready for its on-going and future programs. ISO 9001:2015 is Swiftships re-cert to its ISO 9001:2008, awarded in 2013.
ISO 9001 certification requires that a company meets certain standards and requirements about how it operates. Meeting these standards not only demonstrates Swiftships commitment to providing premium products and services to its customers, but this certification shows Swiftships drive to continually improve its business processes.
The difference between ISO 9001:2008 vs. 9001:2015 is companies are rated on an advanced quality assurance standards (known as the High-Level Structure), making it easier to use multiple management systems. In addition, it increases focus on risk-based thinking.
