Quality Management in the Schmersal Group
All manufacturing subsidiary companies in the Schmersal Group, both at home and abroad, work on the basis of a QM system which is certified to ISO 9001
The QM standards of the group companies worldwide are currently being unified and optimised. This is a challenge, because in the course of this re-organisation the whole management system is being re-structured. The new QM system is process-oriented and will also integrate the safety at work and environmental protection requirements in the medium term.
The new system will increase process security by means of firm measurement and characteristic value requirements. Responsibilities will be more clearly regulated, the sequences arranged in a more systematic and transparent way. This task of re-structuring the QM system, which is being entrusted to a central QM group with functions across locations, is considered very important within the Schmersal Group. The reasons are:
Sophisticated QM System certified according to MD 2006/42/EC
The Schmersal Group can develop and manufacture functional safety products in accordance with Article 12 Para. 3c and Para. 4b without involving a Notified Body. Those responsible for QM at Schmersal addressed the quality requirements of Annex X of MD 2006/42/EC at an early stage, expanded the quality management system accordingly and commissioned TÜV Rheinland to audit and certify the system.
