Dorel Juvenile Europe is first in its sector to gain ISO 9001:2015 certification
Dorel Juvenile Europe has become the first company in its sector to achieve the new ISO 9001:2015 certification. Active in 13 countries across Europe, it is also one of the first multinationals to gain this new certification for organisational quality. Dorel Juvenile Europe is a division of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), the world’s largest manufacturer of children’s products.
Charles de Kervénoaël, President & CEO of Dorel Juvenile Europe, emphasized the importance of the new ISO 9001:2015 certification. “All products we manufacture – from car seats to toys – are made to be used for children. We therefore have a tremendous responsibility to develop products that meet the highest standards so that we help ensure the best of care for them in every possible way. This underlines the passion of Dorel Juvenile Europe’s mission -- ‘Care for Precious Life’.
“Parents trusts our products and we need to respect that trust. All the processes and systems throughout our company are well organised, completely up to date, and are safeguarded by a quality monitoring system. After carrying out an extensive series of audits, external auditors from Bureau Veritas have now awarded our organisational quality in accordance with the new ISO 9001:2015 certification.
“We strive for excellence every day. This is a direct reflection of the nature of our work. We have an obligation to be the best. All of our stakeholders expect it. We’re very proud of being the first multinational company in our sector to gain ISO 9001:2015 certification.”
The new ISO 9001:2015 requirements were published on 23 September 2015. To comply with these, Dorel Juvenile Europe updated its existing quality management system, and achieved his certification at 8 December 2015.
