Echo Ultrasonics is the first NDT ultrasonic manufacturer to be awarded the new Certified Quality System ISO 9001:2015. Echo develops, formulates and manufactures NDT ultrasonic couplants for the worldwide non-destructive testing industry. Early adoption of the ISO 9001:2015 quality standard demonstrates Echo’s efforts to be leaders in the ultrasonics industry.
Emily Larson-Rutter, Quality Manager of Echo Ultrasonics said, “The new ISO 9001:2015 is a High Level Structure (HLS) which provides a framework for incorporating other quality standards (such as the newly issued AS9100:2016-D). ISO 9001:2015 places additional emphasis on leadership and management commitment being actively engaged and taking accountability for the effectiveness of the company’s Quality Management System. Adherence to ISO 9001:2015 quality standard requires employees to use critical thinking skills focusing on risk.”
As part of the new ISO 9001:2015 certification process, Echo Ultrasonics engaged in a rigorous 3rd party audit of its risk identification and abatement infrastructure, administration and manufacturing processes, as well as customer and product quality requirements. Achieving ISO 9001:2015 certification reflects Echo’s dedication to quality and highlights our structured and systematic approach to the design, development, manufacture and distribution of ultrasonic couplants.
