Quality Assurance

Every day, BEP works diligently to create processes that help consistently improve the quality, safety and efficiency of currency manufacturing.  We invest time into improving manufacturing workflows and we are proud to be certified to the ISO 9001:2015 standard for quality management systems.

Our Quality Policy

Everything we do supports producing secure, high-quality banknotes that meet customer requirements.  We are committed to continually improving products and processes and investing in our employees and equipment that enable that improvement.

Our objectives are to provide excellent service and quality products to our customers, to ensure products meet customer quality requirements, and to continuously improve manufacturing operations and prevention capabilities.

ISO 9001:2015 Certification

The ISO 9001:2015 standard is specifically meant to establish the criteria needed for a company’s quality management system—i.e., the way that the organization ensures that it can consistently provide quality products/services that meet any applicable regulatory standards.

As noted on the ISO website, “This standard is based on a number quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.”

This quality management system appraisal and certification is meant to be industry and size agnostic—ISO 9001 can be applied to nearly any business regardless of size or what they do.

Following ISO 9001 standards helps businesses organize their processes so they can make continuous, steady improvements to their quality, efficiency, and other key performance metrics over time.  This helps make the business more competitive than its non-ISO certified counterparts.
