Quality Management System Approvals

ISO 9001 & ISO/TS16949
ISO/TS 16949 combines various particular quality and process requirements for automotive manufacture and service part suppliers. The IATF (International Automotive Task Force) members developed this high standard based on the quality management system ISO 9001. It was approved by and jointly published with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System)
ISO 14001 is an internationally approved family of standards, which specifies criteria and requirements for all kinds of companies and organizations to manage their environmental responsibilities. It provides practical tools to achieve continuous improvement in their environmental behavior.

OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment System)
OHSAS 18001, referring to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, is a management system that helps an organization to control its occupational health and safety risks. It provides guidelines and standards helping to minimize health and safety risks for employees and continuously improve the existing OHS management system.



Safety Assurance Approvals

Regulations for Polymeric Materials to ensure safety quality assurance for the electrical and electronic application of resins in finished parts products.

UL (Underwriters Laboratories, USA)
• UL94HB (Flammability), 746A (electrical test), 746B (RTI)

CSA (Canadian Standard Associate, Canada)
• C22.2 No.6 (Flammability)



Drinking Water & Food Contact Compliance

NSF (National Sanitation Foundation, USA) approvals:
• NSF14 (Piping Plastics System Components and Related Materials)
• NSF61 (Drinking Water System Components Health Effects)
• NSF51 (Food Equipment)

FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA) compliance:
• 21CFR (Code of Federal Regulations), §177.2470, POM Copolymer
• Compliance regulations for materials intended for food contact

BS 6920 (British Standard 6920, UK):
Regulation for non-metallic components for use in contact with potable water.

Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011:
European Regulation for plastic materials and articles intended for contact with food.

BfR Recommendations:
The BfR Recommendations on materials for food contact include substances for which there is no harmonized European legislation. For plastics, these are the aids for polymerization, such as the components of the catalytic system (catalysts and initiators) as well as the polymer production aids.



Laboratory Quality Certification

KOLAS (Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme) Laboratory Quality System with ISO 17025:
KOLAS is mutual recognized with APLAC (Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation).
