Our Quality Management System is registered to ISO 9001 by QMI, a division of SAI Global and North America's leading QMS registrar. Our adherence to this standard provides one of the strongest assurances of service quality available.
As a minimum, all work at Kinectrics is performed to meet the requirements of ISO 9001. The program is designed around the project management methodology, customized to the needs of each project to ensure an appropriate level of quality management. Supporting technical work is controlled through documented procedures. Quality is maintained through regular review, independent verification where required, and frequent internal audits. Customers may review the program at any time.
Specific services are provided under supplementary quality assurance programs. For example, our Analytical Services and Electrical / Mechanical Testing & Certification Laboratories are accredited by the Standards Council of Canada as conforming to ISO Standard 17025. Our N285 QA program for the supply of nuclear pressure retaining systems and components in CANDU nuclear power plants has been certified by the TSSA. For U.S. clients involved in nuclear safety-related work, Kinectrics maintains a 10 CFR 50 Appendix B program.
Customers have audited our ability to supply at quality levels prescribed by additional standards, including for example CSA Z299.1, N286.1, N286.2, and N286.3.
