Lebedinsky GOK reconfirms compliance of quality management system with international standard
27 November 2017
At Lebedinsky GOK (part of Metalloinvest), the British Standards Institution has held an inspection audit to confirm the compliance of the enterprise's quality management system with the requirements of the new version of the ISO 9001:2015 international standard.
During an operational review of the workings of the Lebedinsky GOK quality management system, the experts visited the geological surveying unit, technical management, sales, technical control and procurement departments, offices of the chief mechanic, meteorological service, human resources department, power supply unit, pelletisation plant and hot briquetted iron production facility. The auditors held talks with managers and employees, analysed the enterprise's documentation and assessed the extent to which its quality management goals had been achieved.
Based on the results of their review, the experts of the British Standards Institution confirmed that Lebedinsky GOK's current quality management system complies with the ISO 9001:2015 standard, while also noting that the enterprise's system is constantly being implemented and improved. Based on these positive results, the British Standards Institution awarded the quality management system a certificate of compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard.
This certificate confirms that Lebedinsky GOK is able to supply quality products that meet customer demands on a stable basis, and is one of the most important conditions that will enable Metalloinvest to continue to strengthen its leading position in the iron ore raw materials market.
Oleg Mikhailov, Managing Director of Lebedinsky GOK, commented: "Our quality management system, organised in line with the ISO 9001:2015 international standard, is 'an expert management technology' for a business entity. Our system's compliance with international criteria is important for our competitiveness and serves as a confirmation of the efficiency of our business."
Lebedinsky GOK's quality management system was initially awarded a certificate of compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 international standard in March 2007. The enterprise has successfully undergone recertification and inspection audits ever since.
The quality management systems of Metalloinvest's enterprises Lebedinsky GOK, Mikhailovsky GOK, OEMK and Ural Steel have all been awarded certificates of compliance with the ISO 9001 standard.
