EFFICIENT QUALITY MANAGEMENT: IRS Group successfully certified to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015

Since 28 November 2018, the entire IRS Group has been certified to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 in the areas of management, shared service, dent removal without paint work, hail damage repair, smart repair, car wrapping, rim refurbishment, rim repair and body & paint. The certificate was issued by inspection company Dekra for the next 3 years and will be monitored on an ongoing basis at regular intervals.

“We are very proud of this certification”, André Kosubek, Quality Management Representative of the IRS Group, says. “It demonstrates that we are perfectly equipped for the present and future requirements and tasks.” After a year full of challenges, such as the integration of the new businesses and the establishment of a functional quality management system, Dekra was able to certify compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard for the entire Intelligent Repair Solutions Holding GmbH.

The DIN EN ISO 9001 standard is considered to be the mother of all quality standards and certifies companies for maintaining an efficient quality management (QM) system. The standard also requires a continual improvement process in the QM system, which has to be verified and documented by the respective companies. The international ISO 9001 standard for quality management systems, which has been under revision since 2012, was published in September 2015 in its latest version ISO 9001:2015 to replace version 9001:2008. For this reason, the entire quality management system of the IRS Group was – successfully – audited for compliance with the latest version 9001:2015, making all process steps more traceable and more transparent for the customers.

The certification of the quality management system to ISO 9001 forms the basis for continuously improving the efficiency and quality of work within the IRS Group using a process-oriented approach. With the successful certification, Dekra confirms this commitment of the IRS Group, thereby strengthening the trust of employees, partners and, most importantly, customers in the company.
