Electro Scan Inc., a global leader in leak detection and pipeline certification, has announced that it has received ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certification for its patent-pending leak detection instrumentation and related Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud application.
Electro Scan becomes the first and only vendor to have received ISO certification in compliance with ASTM F2550-13, standard practice for locating leaks by measuring the variation of electric current flow through the pipe wall.
Certification to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards requires an accredited third party auditing organisation to thoroughly review the Company’s internal quality management system processes and environmental management system, respectively, to ensure that they are capable of consistently delivering a service that meets customers’ needs and expectations.
“I’m very happy to be able to congratulate our staff on achieving ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification,” commented Chuck Hansen, Chairman, Electro Scan Inc. “As our customers operate in highly regulated industries, requiring their own compliance to advanced standards, it is only fitting that we be a certified international technology supplier that demonstrates our unwavering commitment to quality.”
ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an effective Environmental Management System (EMS) and is an integral part of the European Union's Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).
