{pp}Paarl Labels, specialist self-adhesive label printing company in the Paarl Media Group of quality printers, has achieved its ISO 9001:2000 certification.

Commenting on the news, Managing Director Callie de Wet says: “When Paarl Labels became a stand-alone business unit at the beginning of 2006, we renewed our commitment to ensure the highest standards for our clients.

“We already had top notch technology in place to deliver quality labels, but we wanted to further add value to our clients by obtaining international certification,” says De Wet. ISO 9001:2000 certification is all about standardising processes, which are followed to ensure high quality. Clients benefit in terms of their own reporting processes when their label print supplier is ISO 9001:2000 certified.

In addition, it gives clients peace of mind that quality standards prevail in their label supply chain. This is especially important to clients in the wine industry today, who are often dependent on exporting wine which was produced and bottled in accordance with strict ISO standards. De Wet continues: “We embarked on our process to obtain ISO 9001:2000 certification from a point of strength.

In 2007, we appointed a Quality Assurance & Development Officer, Erick Carstens – who was promoted from machine minder into this position – to assume responsibility for quality control, the co-ordination of Paarl Labels' ISO programme and new developments in the plant.

We already had high quality standards and procedures in place and were fortunate that all our staff members immediately came on board to support the certification process. .../more Paarl Labels ISO/two (last) “Today, it is a privilege for us to be ISO 9001:2000 certified, giving our clients the confidence that they are dealing with a label printer which do business within the framework of internationally recognised quality systems and processes.”
