Derry~Londonderry company, DuPont, has been given the distinction of being one of the first companies in Northern Ireland to achieve the updated ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems certification from BSI (British Standards Institution).


BSI is the National Standards Body of the United Kingdom, producing technical standards on a wide range of products and services whilst also supplying certification and standards-related services to businesses.


ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized Quality Management System (QMS) standard designed to be a powerful business improvement tool, explained Paul Kirkpatrick from DuPont.


“We’re very happy to be amongst the first in the country to achieve this certification.  It’s down to the hard work and diligence of a very committed team of professionals at the plant that we are ahead of the game.


“Having the latest ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems certification shows that we are committed to working effectively with stakeholders, continually improve and streamline operations, reduce costs and win more business and compete in tenders.  We are able to satisfy more customers, be more resilient and build a sustainable business with strong corporate governance at its core”, said Paul.


Carla Whyte, Senior Client Propositions Manager at BSI said: “By achieving certification to ISO 9001, DuPont has demonstrated and embedded a process based approach in to their organization helping them to increase their resilience. This will help them to continually monitor and manage quality across all operations to ensure consistent performance and service. The team at DuPont should be very proud of this achievement.”
