SeaRobotics Corp. (SeaRobotics), a marine robotics and autonomous systems developer, today announced the company’s successful ISO 9001:2015 certification of its quality management system (QMS).

ISO 9001:2015 is a globally recognized quality management standard developed and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which sets the criteria for which large or small companies, regardless of the primary field of activity, should comply to implement and maintain a QMS.

The company stated that the ongoing application and auditing of SeaRobotics’ QMS will help establish a validated framework of processes and procedures that ensure clients and collaborators benefit from continued operational excellence, quality improvement, and accountability.

SeaRobotics’ ISO 9001:2015 certification was awarded by Internal Auditors Inc. (IAI) and accredited by North American Accreditation Bureau Inc. (NAAB) based on the examination of seven core quality management principles. These included customer focus, leadership, engagement of people, process approach, continuous improvement, evidence-based decision making, and relationship management.

IAI concluded that SeaRobotics’ processes, policies, and procedures fully align with the international standards prescribed by ISO 9001:2015.

“SeaRobotics’ successful ISO 9001:2015 certification marks an exciting milestone in the company’s 25-year history and serves as a testament to its established track record of providing customers with advanced marine robotics technologies and support services,” SeaRobotics president Don Darling said in a statement announcing the certification. “Under our certified QMS, the team at SeaRobotics will continue to prioritize a systematic approach to driving ongoing quality improvement, increased efficiencies, and enhanced customer service as we seek to help clients integrate robotic and autonomous systems into their ways of working in marine environments.”
