Beacon is excited to announce that the company received the coveted ISO 9001:2008 certification. ISO 9001:2008 is a quality management system recognized by organizations around the world as the benchmark for continual quality improvement.
Through ISO 9001:2008 certification, Beacon demonstrates their dedication to providing the highest quality standards and customer service to their federal government and commercial customers. Beacon went through a rigorous external audit process that included a review of every division and department’s policies and procedures, as well as documentation of the significant activities that affect the company’s daily work and operations. To maintain their certification, and as part of their ongoing quality program, Beacon will continue to conduct regular audits by an internal team.
Carol Koffinke, President and CEO of Beacon, said, “Achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification is a significant milestone for the company. It was a long and extensive journey but we have many dedicated employees who helped us get to this point. I am very grateful for that.”
“Going through ISO certification put us to the test,” says Chief Operating Officer, Ann Marie Bryant. “We had to practice what we preach in terms of following quality-centric practices and process improvement. ISO 9001:2008 certification shows our customers, partners, and subcontractors that we are committed to quality standards and continually improving our corporate level business processes.”
ISO 9001:2008 specifies a set of requirements that must be in place to have a quality management system, regardless of the organization’s size, product or service line, or public or private status. Certification to the standard is voluntary, and organizations must complete a rigorous auditing process by a third-party registrar.
