Following our recent successful transition to IATF 16949:2016 and ISO9001:2015 we are pleased to be able to add copies of our awaited certificates to our website for interested parties.

We are busy embedding the new quality system throughout the company and building on the changes it imposes.

Having recently completed transition to ISO14001:2015 we are now very pleased to announce that we have also successfully completed our transition for quality standards ISO9001:2015 & IATF16949:2016.

This certification demonstrates GE Starr’s commitment to quality and continual improvement. IATF16949 is the highest international quality standard for the automotive industry. It aims to develop a risk-based quality management system that provides continual improvement, defect prevention, and reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain.

The transition was not always easy but we are now through to the other side and have a QMS to build on.

We were audited for ISO14001 in early July and have successfully transitioned to ISO14001:2015. Our auditor stated in his summary:

“The system for environmental management has been organised in line with the requirements of ISO14001-2015. A review to the new requirements was conducted. A satisfactory visit, with no issues or concerns identified. The Management Systems have been effectively developed and discussions confirmed understanding, commitment & implementation by the Senior Management Team."

The Company is clearly focused on achieving its business aims, and the EMS fits in well with its commitment to quality and delivery of service within the automotive supply chain. Operational processes are well organised and controlled. Evidence for customer facing processes were reviewed and there is good evidence of a committed approach to maintaining its environmental improvement and life cycle perspective throughout the process for manufacture and service delivery. Management team demonstrated effective leadership and commitment through support of the EMS, investment in resources, monitoring of performance and compliance with requirements.”

We have just completed more IATF16949 training and we are very pleased to say we now have four IATF 1st party auditors on site.

We have been working with a delightful and knowledgeable team of consultants led by Bob Hughes at Temple QMS who are supporting us in our transition. More IATF news to follow shortly.

We are still in the transition phase for the latest version of the automotive quality standard which is IATF 16949:2016.  The standard incorporates all the elements of the general quality standard ISO 9001:2015. All our processes are wittten so watch this space for more news in the summer. GE Starr is at the forefront of quality management systems.
