The Krasny Kotelshchik Taganrog Boiler-Building Plant, a member of the Power Machines company, obtained a certificate of compliance of the plant Quality Management System, to the requirements of STO GAZPROM 9001-2012. At present, only eight Russian enterprises manufacturing pipeline fittings have this document.
The certificate of compliance was the result of successful auditing by the INTERGAZCERT voluntary certification system. Krasny Kotelshchik was checked by the Russian Register Certification Association.
Thanks to obtaining this document, the rating of the TKZ as a manufacturer of pipeline fittings was upgraded. Also, Gazprom got additional guarantees of stability of the plant's production processes and product quality.
Being granted a Quality Management System certificate is the principal element of voluntary certification, but not the only one. In particular, the assessment of the Taganrog plant's goodwill and the audit of pipeline fitting manufacture directly at the production site are planned for the future.
