ISO Certificates

The success of our customers is closely linked to the quality of our products. In order to guarantee a consistently high standard, we are regularly certified by neutral and independent certification institutes. In this way we ensure that our promised product properties are adhered to. At the same time, we know where we stand and which steps are necessary to further raise the quality level.  

All our ISO CERTIFICATES are subject to the high level structure standard. With this cross-standard structure, the various ISO standards can be better aligned. At the same time, the high level structure serves to develop new standards that are compatible with each other.  


The 10chapters of the high level structure

  1. scope of application
  2. normative references
  3. terms
  4. context of the organisation
  5. guidance
  6. planning (for the management system)
  7. support
  8. operation
  9. performance evaluation
  10. improvement

The PDCA cycle

The PDCA cycle divides seven chapters of the high level structure into four sections: PLAN (4.-7.), DO (8.), CHECK (9.) and ACT (10.). The last point of the high level structure can also be understood as the starting point of a new cycle. This shows how the successive improvement is achieved. All our certificates are subject to this structure.
