LEM achieves IRIS certification for its Geneva and Beijing production sites

LEM announces IRIS certification for its production sites in Geneva, which has been in place since September 2007 and Beijing which achieved this status in July 2008. IRIS, the International Railway Industry Standard is a globally recognized standard for the railway industry for the evaluation of management systems. It is an initiative led by the Association of European Railway Industries (UNIFE), supported by system integrators and equipment manufacturers. IRIS is unique to the railway industry and an extension of the internationally recognized quality standard ISO 9001.

LEM is very proud to be one of the first companies to achieve this certification, especially for its two main production sites. For LEM it is the extension of their Automotive Industry Standard ISO 16949 certification already held for both sites for Automotive. The IRIS standard will become increasingly important because it ensures higher quality across the complete supply chain and simplifies the evaluation and approval process for equipment manufacturers.

LEM implements the IRIS standard together with the Six Sigma method for the entire process from R&D to the final delivery of its products. All LEM industrial and traction transducers have a five year warranty.
