Quality Management Systems
FORCE Technology is, quite often, asked to provide a description of the quality management system. The reason is, in most cases, that one of our customers has established a formalised quality system according to the provisions of ISO 9001. These standards require approval of suppliers and subcontractors.
In order to fulfil the need for information we have prepared the enclosed report on FORCE Technology's quality management system and related management systems.
It should be noted that FORCE Technology, Denmark is one organisation, managed by a single, all-embracing management system.
The systems for quality management, environmental management etc. are integrated parts in this overall management system. A single system is used for the preparation and distribution of in-house standards and instructions.
It should also be noted that wholly or partly owned subsidiaries have systems that to some extent are independent. However, it has been assured that their quality and environmental policies are not in conflict with those of FORCE Technology.
The quality management is based on ISO 9001:2000.
It is FORCE Technology's policy to have a quality management system, which may be certified, but actual certification is established only when required.
However, the main part of FORCE Technology's services involves activities such as chemical analysis, testing, certification, calibration, etc. Such activities are not subject to certification but the quality management is subject to external auditing and recognition in the shape of accreditation (by DANAK) or notification (by some other authority). An accreditation according to for instance ISO 17025 is similar to an ISO 9001 certification with additional requirements. See Annex 1 for further information.
A single system has been established to manage the impact of the corporate activities on the external environment. The environmental management is based on ISO 14001.
The policy of FORCE Technology is that the system may be certified, but certification is established only when required. See Annex 2 for further information.
Occupational Health and Safety Management
Several detailed laws and other specifications regulate occupational health and safety in Denmark. Management of occupational health and safety at FORCE Technology, Denmark corresponds to these legal requirements. See Annex 3 for further information.
Electrical Safety Management (SKS)
The corporate management and organisation have been formalised and specified during the autumn of 2000 in order to meet new Danish legal requirements (stated in the Act on authorisation of electrical contractors, etc. Act No. 314 dated 2000-05-05).
FORCE Technology has obtained security clearance from the Danish Ministry of Defence to perform services involving classified information
