The company has established a quality control system, comprising of:
- Control of raw materials (incoming control);
- In-process control (operation control);
- Control of the finished product (acceptance control).
In order to expand its markets the company is working on certification of products and quality management system (QMS) for compliance with Russian and international standards. The plant's QMS was first certified by Ural UCM "URALTEST" in Yekaterinburg for compliance with the requirements of GOST R ISO 9001 in 2006. The quality management system helps to optimize all production processes, improving their controllability and consistency. This leads to higher product quality and the quality of the Company's processes in general.
BSI Management System CIS (BSI – British Standards Institution, England) certification authority held a supervisory audit of NLMK Metalware’s quality management system for the compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008. Registration Certificate No. FM 598728 valid until 14 September 2018 was issued.
The scope of Quality Management System covers development, production and delivery of hardware items (metalware) of industrial application and fixing hardware for general engineering application.
