Total quality control
As an integral part of the AREVA Group, CANBERRA defines its Quality Policy according to AREVA's principles.
All products and services we offer will meet or exceed the specified requirements and anticipated expectations of our customers. This policy is supported at all levels within the organization.
Our approach to quality is modeled after the concept ofThis approach places the responsibility for quality of work on each employee. All employees are empowered to stop work or processes if they believe quality is in question, and they are encouraged to report quality issues immediately to management. The goal of this approach is 100% Customer Satisfaction. By focusing on our chosen marketplace, continuously improving our products and processes, and constantly innovating, we believe we create the most value for our customers.
CANBERRA has established a certified, documented quality system as a means of ensuring that products and services conform to specified requirements. The quality system has been approved to ISO 9001. The approval also includes the most current revision of EN 29001, BS5750: Part I, and ANSI/ASQC Q-91.
