«Energosteel» regularly conducts quality management audits in order to maintain the effective functioning of the quality management system.
Thus, in April 2019 the testing laboratory of LLC «Plant «Energosteel» successfully passed the regular certification for the measurement system’s compliance with the requirements of DSTU ISO10012:2005 «Measurement management systems. Requirements for measurement processes and measuring equipment».
The audit was carried out by the «Kharkiv Regional Scientific and Production Center of Standardization, Metrology and Certification», State-Owned Enterprise. According to the results of the audit, experts made recommendations for the improving the measurement system and issued a certificate No. 01-0043 / 2019 of the measurement system compliance with the requirements of State Standard ISO10012: 2005.
The recommendations of the experts were to control the actual conditions (the temperature and humidity) during hardness, impact resistance and geometric dimensions measurements at all workplaces where these measurements are taken (not only the laboratory premises, but also the production workshops, warehouses of the raw materials and finished products) using a special device — hygrometer SNDWAY SW-572. We took into account and implemented in the work the recommendations of the experts. We purchased this device to control and record in protocols and conclusions of temperature and humidity. The use of this device minimizes measurement error, which provides a condition of the unity of measurements.
In summing up, we want to draw attention to the fact that the regular auditing is one of the most important components of the «Energosteel» quality management system. The certificates we have received show that the quality management system of our enterprise not only functions effectively but is also constantly checked, analyzed and improved.
