This accomplishment indicates that MicroCare products are developed, engineered, manufactured and delivered using the latest and most advanced quality management processes.

“Our new ISO 9001:2015 certification proves that MicroCare embraces the ISO concepts of quality and continuous improvement,” said Wells Cunningham, Senior Chemical Analyst and MicroCare ISO 9001:2015 Project Lead. “Meeting the stringent ISO 9001 requirements has helped MicroCare consistently improve our quality and better meet both customer and regulatory requirements.”
The new guidelines are a major update to the venerable ISO 9001 standard. These changes ensure that ISO 9001 continues to adapt to the changing environments in which organizations operate. Some of the key updates in ISO 9001:2015 include greater emphasis on the engagement of top management in setting a leadership role on quality.

Our updated certification reinforces the undisputed fact that MicroCare maintains a state-of-the-art quality program to meet and surpass those rigorous customer expectations.”
