ISO 9001 is the established standard for Quality Management Systems world-wide and is a key component of Constantia Flexibles’ strategy. For many years, the Spear group has maintained a Multi-site Certification that includes core procedures and manual for the OH, NY, TN, UK and AF plants. Together these plants have grown and shared best practices. Recently, the Spear Group Quality Team began their transition to the new standard known as ISO 9001:2015. To supplement this process a monthly communication letter is circulating that highlights (one per month) the key sections of the new standard. The goal is to be transitioned to the new standard for the start of 2017.
