JC International Gets ISO 9001:2015 Certification

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Leading Inspection, Rope Access and Training company in Nigeria, JC International, has upgraded its Quality Management System (QMS) from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 2001:2015.

This move, according to the firm, is part of its efforts to continually meet national and international standards.

The new ISO 9001:2015 certification adopted a risk-based thinking, whereby risks and opportunities are identified and used to improve the business processes; while the previous version, 9001:2008 centred more on using corrective and preventive techniques at meeting customer’s requirements.

The certification, which is the latest version of international standard by Bureau Veritas (BV), UK, further affirms JC International’s Quality Management System ability to consistently provide Training, Rope Access, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), Inspection and Certification of Lifting Equipment, Bottom Hole Assembly, Drill Pipes and Water Jetting services to Oil & Gas, Construction and Marine industries.

Speaking on the development, Managing Director of JC International, Engr. Austin Joseph, said the upgrade from 9001:2008 to 9001:2015 was in line with the company’s commitment to meeting and exceeding the expectations of its stakeholders.

“This has further shown how strongly committed we are as a company to continually improve our overall business processes,” while the certificate was presented to the company recently in Lagos.

Mr Joseph noted further that implementing ISO 9001:2015 standards was not only critical to meeting customer’s needs; but also to ensuring a workforce of highly trained and competent personnel as well as mitigating workplace hazards and many other benefits.

Similarly, Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QAQC) Manager, JC International, Mr Theo Aren, explained that the recertification would further reaffirm customer’s confidence in the company.

“Meeting client’s expectations are a core part of our business drive. Our Quality Management System is able to consistently meet the requirements of our interested parties such as employees, customers, government, regulatory bodies and host communities,” he said.

Meanwhile, Bureau Veritas Systems Certification Manager, Mrs Adenike Akinbote, commended JC International for its consistent commitment towards maintaining international standard of operations.

She stated that after months of rigorous assessment, Bureau Veritas found JC International to conform to the requirements of international standard; therefore, worthy of the ISO 9001:2015 certificate.
