RTS Life Science, a worldwide supplier of automated sample management and drug delivery testing systems is pleased to announce that they have successfully passed the NQA Audit of their Quality Management System and are now certified to ISO 9001:2008 standard and TickIT software standard level 5.5
The RTS Quality Management System operates across all areas of the business from purchasing, through project management to system build, after sales service and support. Non operational activities such as asset management and fire disaster recovery are also included in the audit. Passing the audit with flying colours, the Auditor described RTS' software process management as 'excellent'.
Although ISO 9001 certified for many years, the auditors commented on how, under the new quality management leadership and structure, the system has gone from strength to strength since certification was last achieved in 2006. The impressive appearance of the RTS Life Science work environment since relocating to a newly refurbished building was commented on, as was internal communication and the implementation of the intranet to capture news, updates and discussion forums across all areas of the business.
Gary Walsh, Managing Director of RTS Life Science commented 'we are continuously striving to improve our business processes, cut out wasted effort and deliver quality systems to our customers. This certification is testament to the effort of all RTS personnel and their commitment to deliver exemplary projects in a professional and timely manner'.
The ISO 9001:2008 standard and TickIT software standard level 5.5 certification will remain in place for the next 3 years during which time the Company will continue to be audited.
