The QMS has made it possible to develop an exclusive quality manual, covering all the areas of work and activities, instead of a great number of standards at the Company.
The quality manual is a top-priority QMS document at ďSupermetal,Ē and it confirms the conformity to GOST R ISO 9001-2001 in the Companyís QMS.
