ISO 9001:2008 Recertification

Signal International recently completed the ISO 9001:2008, 3-year re-registration audits at both the Mississippi and Texas Divisions. The audits were completed with zero (0) findings (no major nor minor findings) and zero (0) non-conformances.

During the audits, Signal’s Quality Management System (QMS) was reviewed to ensure proper implementation, procedure compliance and proof of continuous process improvements, as required by the ISO 9001:2008 Standard. The following components of the QMS were assessed:

  • Management commitment, review and planning QMS implementation and execution
  • Nonconformance tracking system, corrective and preventive actions program
  • Internal and external audits
  • Document and records control
  • Human resources, competence and training
  • Determination of customer and regulatory requirements
  • Management systems, purchasing and material (shipping & receiving) control
  • Vendor selection, monitoring and control
  • Contract and subcontract review and management
  • Engineering processes and controls
  • Production process controls, equipment calibrations and maintenance

The Independent Auditor awarded commendations for above-average performance in the following areas:

  • Quality records
  • Communications with employees
  • Project materials control and welder traceability documentation

Signal's QMS provides for inspection and verification of all elements of the construction process that affect quality. Materials control, dimensional control, special processes (welding & coating) and statistical controls are used to monitor quality trends and are all effectively executed to provide a comprehensive QA/QC program to assure your project’s success.
