ISO 9001 Quality Policy Statement
It is the policy of the Company to maintain a quality system designed to assist us to achieve our business needs and to meet the requirements of EN ISO 9001. All our work and support functions operate within the system.
All work carried out by PFA on behalf of its customers should be completed on time, to the highest realistically achievable standards and in compliance with all contractual agreements. This is achieved by personal and company professionalism within the framework of the Quality Management System. This system helps ensure that all tasks are performed by suitably trained, qualified and supervised staff or contractors perform all tasks, and sets out strict standard operating procedures for time and project management, document handling, staff records and quality control (among other provisions).
To ensure that the Company maintains its awareness for continuous improvement, the quality system is regularly reviewed and is subject to annual audit by an external ISO accreditation company.
