ACET has been developed to meet the stringent quality standards of BS/EN/ISO 9001:2008 and the TickIT Guide.
Accreditation is for:
“The development, implementation and support of the ACET (Asset Condition Evaluation Tool) suite of products and supporting software for the management of corrosion and inspection in various industries worldwide.”
A Quality Management System (QMS) can be defined as the organisational structure, procedures, processes and resources needed to implement quality management. Some of the more important elements of the ACET Department quality management system include:
• Organisational structure
• Data Management
• Customer Satisfaction
• Continuous Improvement
• Product Quality
"By introducing a quality system into the ACET department and our day to day work we have adopted a standard approach to the development, implementation and support processes, which gives the ACET team control and continuity of product quality through all stages of its life cycle" - Nigel Smith, ACET Manager.
The ACET department is audited on an annual basis to verify conformance to our quality standards. Quality audits (both internal and external) are essential to verify the existence of objective evidence to show conformance to required processes and are a hands-on management tool for achieving continual improvement within the department.
