GE Energy Geospatial Business receives ISO 9001:2000 certification

GE Energy’s geospatial solutions business has been awarded the ISO 9001:2000 certification for quality management systems by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Ltd. (LRQA), an internationally recognized management consulting organization. Based in Kansas City, GE’s geospatial solutions business provides advanced aerial photography, photogrammetric mapping, GIS implementation services, and geospatial data management applications to private sector civil and environmental engineering firms, public and private utility companies, pipeline operators and civil governments.
Conformity with ISO 9001:2000 quality assurance standards required procedural changes, special training, upgraded documentation, and adjustments to operating practices in a number of production processes. Among the important changes implemented as a result of the certification are streamlined production processes, allowing expanded capacity to further meet customer expectations. The ISO 9001:2000 is also an important standard of performance in international business, giving GE’s geospatial solutions business another key qualifier in business development.
