Metal finishing supplier and Building Products manufacturer DECO Australia successfully renewed its ISO 9001:2015 accreditation after a surveillance audit in May 2020.
ISO 9001, which is an International Standard that sets out the criteria for a business wide Quality Management System and ensures quality management principles including process controls, compliance testing, customer focus, and continual improvement are consistently upheld.
The audit, which is carried out annually by international certification body DNV-GL, was also DECO’s first business-wide ISO 9001 audit. Both divisions of DECO – Architectural, which produces non-combustible aluminium building products, and Industrial, which provides durable surface finishing solutions to a range of industries – were included in this audit.
DECO’s audit report for 2020 highlighted its high level of control over all its operations, including internal continual improvement measures, and the auditor found no evidence of nonconformances with the requirements set out by the standard. All staff engaged with the audit and leaders demonstrated evidence of evidence-based decision making.
“The glowing results of this audit show how efficiently DECO is meeting our customer’s needs and our business objectives,” said DECO Director Ross Doonan. “We have always shown dedication and commitment to quality, customers and innovation in all our processes. This ISO 9001 accreditation, which extends across all key aspects of our business, positions us as a certified supplier for key industries including defence, engineering and manufacturing, and allows us to confidently guarantee quality products and services that meet customer needs every time.”
DECO Australia is a proud member of Australian Industry and Defence Network (AIDN) NSW, the Australian Institute of Surface Finishing and the Australian Corrosion Association.
