Germany: RapidEye announced that TÜV NORD of Germany, an official accreditation body for ISO 9001 standards, has not only extended RapidEye’s ISO certification after an extensive audit for its Quality Management Systems (QMS) but upgraded the certification to the ISO 9001:2008 level. This certificate covers marketing, sale, development and provision of geo-spatial product and service projects.
Globally recognised and respected, ISO 9001:2008 standards are set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), a Geneva-based worldwide federation of national standard bodies. This certification demonstrates RapidEye’s dedication to and implementation of a dedicated, systematic and quantifiable approach to quality standards.
Paul Karnowka, Quality Control Manager at RapidEye, said, “The recent upgrade to ISO 9001:2008 supports our intentions to continually improve operations and processing of RapidEye products and services. ISO 9001 illustrates to our clients and competitors that the approach we have chosen has brought us a long way since our launch in 2008. With this in mind, we highly anticipate to make further progress in pro-actively seeking the best solution to exceed our customers’ expectations and subsequently establish an even more reputable position within the market.”
