ISO 9001 Registration Audit Success!

Waco Products, Inc. an aluminum and stainless steel fabricator in Baltimore has completed our registration audit with only one minor finding! Our Quality System is AWESOME and I was so proud to present it. The company has come such a long way, and we see the benefits of the ISO implementation in every area of the business.

This makes my 7th year in the industry, and 6th year as the management representative, and I have learned A LOT since then.

Here's what I learned this time around:

Involvement of the people doing the work in improvement efforts and problem solving is SO important. If they are not a part of the decision making process they are unlikely to comply with requirements.

Recognizing people who do contribute to the success of the Quality Management System by giving them a personal handwritten thank you note which specifies how their individual contribution has helped motivates employees tremendously.


Always remember to check, re-check, and check a third time all cross reference numbers to Internal Audits, Nonconformity Reports, and Corrective/Preventative Actions, as well as any associated procedural references. This kind of thing WILL bite you in the end and is easily prevented by taking a few minutes per day to check cross references as the audit approaches.

Communication, communication, communication. This, above all is by far the most important part. Take every opportunity you can to enforce important concepts, I like to do mini pop quizzes out of nowhere at random when I pass people in hallways or on the plant floor.

While there is always so much to learn, I feel confident in my abilities after this audit. If anyone has an ISO or AS9100 audit approaching and has specific questions feel free to ask.

I would also like to extend a special :thanx: to Marc and everyone at the Elsmar Cove who has been here to help me since day 1.
