Quality Assurance Certifications:
Foss has several certifications that set us apart from other manufacturing companies and illustrate the company’s long-term commitment to quality in all areas of operation. Specifically, Foss is certified to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 17025:2005 Lab Accreditation, and (UL) Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
The ISO 9001:2008 is primarily focused on quality management. The quality management system standards of ISO 9001: 2008 enable Foss to continue to improve, meet, and exceed its customers’ expected level of quality and adhere to applicable regulatory requirements.
ISO 17025:2005 is the contemporary standard to be followed by all testing laboratories. The standard not only contains specifications for quality systems requirements but also those based on technical competency and the ability to generate technically valid results. This is extremely important for Foss, because it means that we are approved to provide test data generated in our laboratory and that our data will be recognized by the industry.
(UL) Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. is the Certification for Surface Burning Characteristics. Foss maintains a (UL) Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. for their Bedford and Ozite Rib products. The UL symbol is recognized worldwide for compliance and verification of safety standards.
These certifications provide our customers with the highest level of confidence in Foss, and lessen the need for them to conduct Quality Audits of our facilities. This makes it easier for Foss to be placed on “Approved Supplier Lists.”
