Lebedinsky GOK confirms compliance of its quality management system with international standard
8 November 2018
Lebedinsky GOK (part of Metalloinvest) has successfully passed an audit of its quality management system. Auditors from the British Standards Institution (BSI) confirmed the system’s adherence to the ISO 9001:2015 international standard.
During the audit, experts monitored mine management processes, activities taking place at the power supply unit, the department of automotive management, the department of rail transportation management, as well as the technical, sales support, technical control, metrology service and HR departments at its beneficiation plant and HBI plant. The auditors spoke with management and employees, analysed documents and evaluated the achievement of targets in the field of quality control.
Employees of the audited departments demonstrated strong capabilities in information processing, maintenance and management as well as ensuring the productivity of processes and, overall, the successful and effective implementation of the quality management system.
Having noted the positive results, auditors confirmed that Lebedinsky GOK’s quality management system complies with international standards. The certifying organisation decided to extend the validity of the ISO 9001:2015 certificate for another three years.
The document confirms that Lebedinsky GOK can reliably supply quality products which meets customer requirements. It is one of the most important factors to further strengthen Metalloinvest’s position in the iron ore market.
Oleg Mikhailov, Managing Director of Lebedinsky GOK, commented: “The quality management system is not just a “smart system” for business management – it is a special method of enterprise management, where managers and employees aspire to improve the quality of products and the system itself. During the audit, all our departments demonstrated a high level of engagement which is very important for efficient system functionality and for the achievement of Lebedinsky GOK’s objectives.”
The Lebedinsky GOK quality management system was first certified as being compliant with international standards in March 2007. Since then, the enterprise has regularly and successfully conducted re-certification and audit procedures.
