Our Quality Management System

Crawford’s quality management system meets the requirements of ISO 9001: 2008.

Our internal Quality Management System is audited and verified by independent certification bodies to prove conformity to internal standards, ISO norms and regulatory requirements.

Crawford has established, documented, implemented, maintains and continually improves the effectiveness of our quality management system to ensure that products conform to contractual requirements. The company is structured to support the effective implementation of its quality system and controls are in place to monitor the system.

Defective Product and Supply Chain Issues

It is a firm policy of Crawford’s that non-conformities be documented and evaluated. The benchmark analysis and non-conformance reports are an invaluable tool in tracking performance and trends that give indication where and when a corrective action is required.

There are five possibilities for disposition of nonconforming product reported on a Customer Non-conformance Report:

  • Return to stock
  • Return to vendor
  • Scrap
  • Repaired or Reworked (by simple process)
  • Pre-approved return by vendor

The purpose of this procedure is to provide for a system, instructions and to assign responsibility for:

  • Identifying, documenting and evaluating a nonconforming product.
  • Disposition for a nonconforming product.
  • Re-verification after correction.
