RFID Company Verigenics Receives ISO 9001:2015 Certification

Following months of preparation, the Verigenics RFID division of NewAge Industries has received ISO 9001:2015 certification. Verigenics provides RFID technology that enables medical device makers, pharmaceutical manufacturers and other regulated companies to track and authenticate consumables, assets and equipment. The new certification also applies to the company's AdvantaPure high-purity products division, which produces silicone tubing, reinforced hoses, molded manifold assemblies and components for the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and clean-application industries.

"Previously, our Verigenics and AdvantaPure divisions held ISO 9001:2008 certification," said Mary Marcus, NewAge Industries' director of quality, in a prepared statement. "Our leadership team determined that we needed to update our certification promptly to show our customers that they can depend on receiving the same high quality products time and time again."

Differences between the ISO 9001:2008 requirements and those for ISO 9001:2015 include an increased focus on risk-based thinking and assessment, greater emphasis on leadership involvement and more focus on supply chain. ISO 9001:2015 also uses simplified language and updated terminology.

Team members at NewAge Industries initially met in mid-2016 to begin reviewing the new requirements. Once tasks were completed, a registrar's audit took place, resulting in receipt of the ISO 9001:2015 upgrade.

"This certification was a big undertaking," Marcus said in the prepared statement. "It involved dozens of team members, working individually and in groups, to understand the new requirements and then put plans and actions into place to ensure compliance."
