Robert Allan Ltd., Naval Architects and Engineers of Vancouver, B.C., is pleased to announce that they have just received ISO 9001:2000 Certification from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) for the company’s Quality Management System (QMS).
In 2006, Robert Allan Ltd. started the certification process in earnest when it was recognized that the rapidly expanding company would benefit from an approved QMS. Given the competitive nature of the marine design industry, the ISO 9001:2000 Certification process was selected to both reinforce the position of Robert Allan Ltd. as an industry leader, and to lead to improved productivity and efficiencies in our internal design processes. In achieving certification to this international standard, the company’s QMS will continue to improve and meet the challenges of innovation and diversity in the demanding commercial ship design arena.
LRQA approval of the Robert Allan Ltd. QMS endorses the formalization of the company design processes, and our commitment to maintain the reputation for honesty, integrity and excellence of design which has been the hallmark of this company since its inception over 77 years ago.
