Worldwide leader in consulting and advanced testing services, Fime, has achieved ISO9001:2008 certification as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
The registration of compliance recognises the company's French-based headquarters and offices as delivering the highest standard of management and business operations to support FIME's globally recognised testing services and industry accredited laboratories.
The ISO9001:2008 certification acknowledges the efficient processes of FIME's operations, including its people, training, services and product development processes, for example, its tool manufacturing, engineering and laboratory testing. This latest ISO standard adds to FIME's existing ISO17025 laboratory certification, which reflects the company's testing and calibration processes.
Pascal Le Ray, General Manager at FIME, comments: "Achieving industry certifications to test and approve products within the secure chip industry is what we do. Achieving ISO global recognition for the quality of our management and business processes demonstrates FIME's desire to not just support our customers, but offer the best service possible and in the most efficient manner. I am delighted that FIME is now ISO9001:2008 certified, as it reflects the hard work of the team and our desire to continually evolve and enhance FIME's offering."
Valérie Petetin, Head of Quality Management at FIME, adds: "It is great to be part of a company that focuses on quality across its management and operations, and invests in delivering the highest customer service. In addition to maintaining the ISO certifications that have already been achieved, I look forward to enhancing FIME's qualification portfolio further."
The next stage in FIME's quality initiative will see the company work towards achieving Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI-Dev level 2) compliance for its software development processes.
