If you’re familiar with our company, Clarion Safety, you know that we take great pride in providing the highest quality safety products and services. One of the ways we honor and advance that commitment is through our ISO 9001 registration, ongoing process improvement, and certification. We’re happy to announce that we’ve successfully earned recertification to ISO 9001:2015, the internationally recognized standard specifying the requirements for quality management systems.
Rigorous Auditing and
ISO 9001, the world’s most widely recognized quality management system standard, helps organizations demonstrate to customers that they can offer products and services of consistently high quality. It also acts as a tool to streamline their processes and make them more efficient at what they do. ISO 9001 registration is confirmation of a company’s longstanding commitment to continually improving quality management systems to ensure customer satisfaction.
“I’m proud of how successful this audit process was, and that there were zero ‘non-conformances’ or negative findings,” says Cherie Flores, our Director of Business Process. “This achievement is due to the dedication and commitment to quality of each of our team members – customer service, sales and marketing, IT, product development, design, production, quality control, shipping, and accounting.”
Certification to ISO 9001 involves rigorous auditing and improvement of business processes, and must be renewed every three years. The recertification process is very similar to the audit phases of the initial certification process. Similar to the last recertification, this audit process was conducted virtually.

of Commitment to ISO 9001
Our journey with ISO 9001 began nearly two decades ago, and we were first certified in 2008. Since then, our compliance certification has been continually updated and reaffirmed through the services of BSI Management Systems America, Inc. ISO 9001:2015 marked a significant shift, and we embraced the changes wholeheartedly to ensure we were at the forefront of compliance.
Embarking on the path to implementing the revisions just two months after the standard was published, we successfully completed the transition in 2016, showcasing our dedication to the latest and best practices in safety and quality.
As we celebrate this recertification milestone, we remain steadfast in our pursuit of excellence. Our commitment to providing the highest quality solutions, exceeding customer expectations, and continuous improvement drives us forward. Thank you for being a part of our journey towards excellence.
