Quality management: Gattefossé Asia Pacific Achieves ISO9001: 2015 Certification


Lyon, France - February 20, 2018
Gattefossé achieves ISO9001: 2015 certification, the international standard that sets requirements in terms of quality management systems, for Gattefossé Asia Pacific, affiliate based in Singapore.

For many years now, Gattefossé has implemented a quality management system on their Saint-Priest (France) site, and this certification for Singapore represents the start of an initiative to widen the quality management scope across the entire group, consistent with the company strategy.
This certification applies to Gattefossé Asia Pacific for marketing and selling speciality ingredients and formulations solutions for the health and beauty industries around the world, as well as managing its operations with its partners. Production activities as part of its partnership with Faci are also ISO9001: 2015 and GMP*certified.

Issued by the SGS certification body from December, 12th 2017, it is part of an ongoing improvement strategy to meet the needs of customers and those of other key stakeholders, and to comply with expected quality standards. This management and continuous improvement approach involves maintaining the systems already in place, monitoring and constantly updating objectives to increase efficiency and seeking out better performance at every level within the company.

This version of the standard, published in September 2015, reinforces the value of a company’s strategy in its approach to quality, integrating risk analyses for all processes, as well as analysing opportunities, while taking the external environment into account.
