Vlaardingen, the Netherlands — SkyDec has started the new year with an important achievement. Thanks to the commitment and active involvement of the top management and crew of SkyDec, we are proud to announce that our company is now ISO 9001:2008-certified in the development, manufacturing, supply and servicing of military navigation and GPS systems.

The implementation of this DNV certification shows that we have embarked on a journey of continuous performance improvement with regards to quality, environment and safety-related issues. The settled procedures guarantee that our products will meet the quality standards, as abnormalities will be revealed in the internal and external audits immediately.

The audits create a dashboard showing the strengths and weaknesses of our products. This will give us the opportunity to implement lessons learned and to improve our processes constantly. This reflects also one of the key elements of our mission statement: a continuous quality improvement of our processes related to full traceability of information about our products, customers and suppliers.

Det Norske Veritas (DNV) is an independent foundation with the purpose to safeguarding life, property, and the environment. As a leading international provider of services for managing risk, their view is that the point of managing risk is not necessarily to eliminate risk, but to have an overview of the most critical risks and to manage them professionally.

With this certification SkyDec proved that it is an innovative organisation that initiates the development of products that improve the performance and capabilities of its customers.
