Talking Approvals: What is ISO 9001 and Why Viega Does It Better

When you’re creating a product that helps build infrastructure all across the globe, there’s no
room for error or inconsistencies. That is why adhering to universal quality standards is so important. All
Viega fittings are manufactured with an unwavering commitment to quality and are ISO 9001:2015-
certified, a globally recognized standard for manufacturing and quality assurance.

What Does ISO 9001-Compliant Mean?

The American Society for Quality defines ISO 9001 as “…the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.” The purpose of this certification is to grade several areas across a product’s fabrication to ensure consistent, quality output. This standard can in turn improve customer satisfaction and company culture.

To achieve ISO 9001:2015 certification, Viega implemented a manufacturing framework founded on these seven quality management principles:

  1. Customer focus
  2. Leadership
  3. Engagement of people
  4. Process approach
  5. Improvement
  6. Evidence-based decision-making
  7. Relationship management

These core values are seen across every step of our organization, from the HQ offices to the manufacturing floor.

Why Should You Look for ISO 9001-Compliant Products?

Viega recertifies its products every three years, in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 standards, ensuring our continued commitment to quality. When it comes to press fittings, every step of our manufacturing process meets ISO 9001:2015 requirements. This ensures quality and business consistency in every connection. As a part of the process, we’ve employed certified quality management systems that routinely measure performance to help build confidence. Our continuous QA process not only mitigates risks and reduces defects but also ensures you get the  best product possible. Not to mention, having confidence in every Viega purchase saves you time, money and a whole lot of headaches on the job.

This type of confidence is beneficial across all applications, specifically commercial, industrial and life sciences. When it comes to commercial and industrial jobs, the specification and approval process is rigorous. Whether you’re building a new apartment building or manufacturing facility, you need piping systems that are guaranteed to perform, every time. Having a QMS allows for listing agencies such as FM and ABS, critical government bodies for release of product, to feel confident that Viega is working under a controlled manufacturing process.

Similarly, life sciences applications have an extremely robust manufacturing process and regulations that must adhere to set standards and procedures. When people’s well-being is on the line, there is no room for error. That makes this certification crucial, ensuring all Viega fittings will perform to the highest quality, thus mitigating risks.
