The Quality System of the company has been already certified according to the ISO 9001:2008 since the 7th of September 2008, but the management of the company decided in May 2012 the extension of the quality system certification to ISO/TS 16949, due to the predominance of Automotive applications on its business.

The Quality Manager of the company, Mr. Alan Tsai, worked a lot for the preparation of the Quality Systems of CORAM Asia, studying the requirements of the norm and of the customers, training the people, modifying the procedures, collecting data and improving the overall performances of the company. The benefits of these 4 years of preparation improved all the processes, with more standardization of the processes, a higher quality level, more logistic control, 5S application and continuos improvement.

The people that is working in CORAM Asia, through this implementation, have a positive team-work attitude and they are aligned with the motto of the company: Ideas, Positivity and Collaboration!

The target of the certification has been reached in 2 steps: in September 2016 it has been passed the document audit, made by BELL CERT Group, and final audit has been done in October 2016, and after the closing of some documentation issues, where the assistance of CORAM Europe was necessary to align the scope of certifications, the ISO/TS 16949:2009 Certificate has been released on by IMQ on 13.02.2017.
