In late 2016, Identiv made the strategic decision to upgrade its certified ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System to the latest ISO 2015 standards and, in addition, to add the current ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System for its Singapore RFID and Transponder production site. The Singapore site has been ISO 9000 certified since 2002.
“Identiv’s local quality team spent the last six months providing organizational guidance to achieve all of ISO’s certification requirements in these categories,” said Dr. Manfred Mueller, Identiv COO.
Major changes to the ISO standards include an increased focus on continuous improvement, which helps ensure a more integrated global focus on initiatives with a specific focus on improving Identiv’s OEM and end-user customer experience. Leadership and management commitment are also areas of increased focus in the new ISO standards.
“In line with its sustainability strategy, Identiv is striving to minimize its environmental footprint by increasing energy efficiency and continuously improving measures taken to protect people and the environment,” said Foo Yong Lee, Identiv VP of operations.
