PROCESSES AND CERTIFICATIONS
Since its inception in 1997, NAF has operated in compliance with the same quality assurance system as the JV partners who are both certified to ISO 9001:2008. NAF achieved its own ISO 9001:2008 certification in July 2015. We will also be pursuing certification to the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) for 2015. NAF is currently listed as an approved site under a joint Det Norske Veritas Manufacturing Survey Arrangement (DNV MSA) with Ellwood City Forge.
Our methodology to quality management is comprised of four main components: quality planning, quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement. NAF focuses not just on the measurements of product quality, but a holistic viewpoint for managing the entire process to ensure we consistently achieve the required results.
