On November 27th, 2017 ELITE Simulation Solutions AG successfully completed the certification audit carried out by Consulant AG, accredited by ASCB (Europe) in London. ASCB oversees the ISO standards in over 70 countries worldwide. This standard for quality management systems is recognised worldwide. Achieving certification guarantees our customers that ELITE’s full service for flight training technology, including programming and testing meets ISO 9001:2015 pursuant to the EN 9100, the quality management system for the aerospace industry.
Elite’s Director of Marketing & Sales René Huddlestone said: “We strive constantly to satisfy our customers, therefore being certified at ISO 9001:2015 standard means that we can assure our customers a constant, high level of reliability from our workmanship at ELITE here at ELITE HQ in Dübendorf, Switzerland. Our mission outlines that we constantly build on our business relationship with customers and vendors with the same innovation & integrity as we use to develop our software and build our training devices.”
The International Register of Quality Assessed Organisations (IRQAO) was established in 1997 to provide a reference to organisations that hold certification, thus validating the quality of their processes, products and services.
As a third party was required to evaluate ELITE, it was decided to opt for the Swiss company Consulant AG, which is based in Bilten, Switzerland. Head Certification Authority Manuel Rickenbach was very pleased to hand over the certification and said: “The great work of the whole ELITE Team integrates Swiss quality with the international ISO standards to the benefit of their customers all over the world.”
Mr. Huddlestone brings it to a point: “We are very proud to have met these high international standards and our entire ELITE team has invested a lot of work to achieve this goal. At ELITE we have a high motivation to grow and constantly improve which is underlined by this recently achieved goal of receiving ISO 9001 certification.
