Quality Policy page

Since the creation of VALUTEC in 1999, our company has evolved in an increasingly competitive context.

Certified ISO 9001 since 2004, our constant objective is to satisfy our customers by respecting their requirements while ensuring the quality of our tests and adopting good professional practices.

Since 2011, the year of our first COFRAC accreditation for knee(s) impact tests on dashboards, we have adopted a continuous improvement approach to our services. Last year, we integrated into our fixed scope the dynamic compression tests, the impact tests and the imposed deceleration tests that we carry out on our direct catapult and our pedestrian bench.

We will be making a request for an extension which will be assessed at the same time as our monitoring assessment next autumn. We wish to incorporate our in-house compression, tensile and peel tests, as well as the drop pit compression tests, into our COFRAC scope of accreditation.

In the spring, we will complete the delivery of a cobot equipped with a climatic cover to conduct endurance tests. This will be followed by a phase of integration into our quality system and a phase of business development.

During the summer, we will acquire a 3D measurement arm equipped with a scanner, which will also be integrated into our quality system and promoted to our customers and prospects.

I therefore invite each member of staff to participate in this process by continuing to familiarise themselves with the quality documentation, by applying the policies and procedures and by becoming aware of the risk analysis.

Everyone is involved in the continuous improvement of our management system by mobilising themselves and taking responsibility for their actions:

  • by maintaining its efforts to minimise the time taken to send reports and carry out services,
  • by reviewing the formalism of our test reports, which some customers ask us to complete with a summary table,
  • by remaining vigilant on compliance with our quality objectives,
  • by being reactive in the management of non-conformities,
  • by continuing to record our improvements on progress sheets.

I undertake to provide the necessary means to bring these projects to a successful conclusion, and ensure that the management and staff are not subject to any undue commercial, financial or other pressure or influence, whether internal or external, which might compromise the quality of our work. I am committed to ensuring that our activities are carried out impartially and with due regard to the confidentiality of information provided by our customers.

The Management is totally involved and affirms by this commitment its willingness to do everything possible to guarantee the success of VALUTEC’s Quality Approach and to ensure the satisfaction of its customers.
