Meridian was previously awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification in March 2009. The latest addition, ISO 9001:2015, was released on Sept. 23, 2015.
Organizations use the ISO standard to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
"The ISO Quality Management System enables Meridian to constantly improve our processes and procedures," ISO Quality Manager Eryn Cameron said in the press release. Cameron noted that risk-based thinking is the "buzz idea" behind the updated 2015 standard.
"To make the move to the most recent ISO standard for manufacturing, Meridian had to undergo a complete QMS makeover, introducing new methods such as risk and opportunity evaluation and leadership responsibility," Cameron said.
"The certification process also requires that organizations self-evaluate processes and procedures to meet specific quality metrics, including customer focus, leadership, engagement, process, improvement, decision making and relationship management. Both internal and third-party certification audits of all aspects were performed."
