SYSGO certified according to ISO 9001:2015
- ISO 9001:2015 published on 09/27/2015 in a completely revised version
- SYSGO receives the new ISO 9001:2015 certificate in November 2015
- High Level Structure well suited to SYSGO
- High investment security for customers
Mainz – December 2, 2015 – SYSGO is one of the first companies to have its processes certified according to the new revision of ISO 9001:2015. The international standard for quality management has been completely revised. The new High Level Structure is now suited for mapping the complex processes in the development of safety- and security-critical software. SYSGO has strict in-house quality requirements in product development that could not be adequately covered with the old ISO:9001. The ISO 9001:2015 certificate provides SYSGO customers visible investment security.
New ISO 9001:2015 supports in-house quality standards
SYSGO develops operating systems and basic software for safety- and security-critical systems such as for aircraft, cars and trains that are certified for their safety according to industry-specific standards, including DO-178B/C, ISO 26262 and EN 50128 as well as Common Criteria (ISO 15408). The old version of ISO 9001 did not suffice and was not flexible enough to provide SYSGO with a strict in-house quality assurance that meets the industry-specific requirements for functional safety and Cyber Security. The completely revised ISO 9001:2015 now enables linking of the requirements for industry-specific functional safety standards for the development of mission-critical software with a process-oriented quality standard. SYSGO has been tested and certified by the „Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Zertifizierung von Managementsystemen (DQS GmbH)“. The certificate can be viewed on the DQS website: http://bit.ly/1kRrua2
“The old version of the ISO 9001 was unsuitable for our very strict in-house standards,” explains Kai Sablotny, COO at SYSGO and board member responsible for certification according to the new standard. “The High Level Structure of the ISO 9001:2015 allowed us to integrate our quality standards, including risk and change management, which are based on the industry-specific certification requirements for functional safety and cyber security standards.”
Securable investment security
Product-specific safety and security standards provide information about the condition and production process of a particular product. ISO 9001:2015 provides a broader overview of the processes of the entire company in its context and includes risk management. The ISO 9001:2015 certificate provides customers, suppliers and institutions involved with the company visible proof of good corporate governance and investment security in their collaboration with SYSGO.
ISO 9001:2015 with High Level Structure
The new structure of ISO 9001 ensures identical definition and structure of all management systems and a unified use of key texts and concepts, thus facilitating the linking with other standards. The current ISO 27001 for information security management, for example, also uses a High Level Structure. ISO 9001:2015 requires anchoring in management and provides for better alignment with in-house business processes as well as self-defined product and service quality. The new flexibility of ISO 9001 enables resource-efficient, process-oriented quality management that takes into account the requirements of other standards.
