Cambridgeshire contract electronics manufacturer (CEM) Prism Electronics is one of the first CEMs to be awarded their quality and environmental certifications to the new international standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

The company's early transition to the standards, ahead of the September 2018 deadline, provides a number of key benefits for both the business and, in turn, customers. Certification to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 through BSI provides assurance that Prism Electronics has evolved its management systems to meet the growing needs of customers and key stakeholders. Through the rigorous audit 10 best practice approaches were identified highlighting Prism’s excellent approach to continuous improvement.

Prism Managing Director David Aspinall said, "Embracing the changes within this revision of the standards demonstrates Prism Electronics commitment to quality and environmental management systems. The new approach to business risk management provides confidence to our existing and potential customers alike."

Through the identification of future customer needs and ongoing improvements applied to customer service and supply chain management Prism Electronics is driving forward to ensure it has a successful business strategy with continuous improvement at its core.

Richard Walton, technical director/quality manager of Prism Electronics, added, "The involvement of people across the organization at all levels has enabled a smooth transition of the standards and sends a clear message to all stakeholders and customers that we are taking a leading and proactive approach to quality and environmental management."
