Dorel Juvenile Europe is first in its sector to gain ISO 9001:2015 certification

Active in 13 countries across Europe, it is also one of the first multinationals to gain this new certification for organisational quality.

Dorel Juvenile Europe is a division of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), the world’s largest manufacturer of children’s products.

Charles de Kervénoaël, President & CEO of Dorel Juvenile Europe, emphasized the importance of the new ISO 9001:2015 certification. “All products we manufacture – from car seats to toys – are made to be used by children. We therefore have a tremendous responsibility to develop products that meet the highest standards so that we help ensure the best of care for them in every possible way. This underlines the passion of Dorel Juvenile Europe’s mission -- ‘Care for Precious Life’.

“Parents trusts our products and we need to respect that trust. All the processes and systems throughout our company are well organised, completely up to date, and are safeguarded by a quality monitoring system. After carrying out an extensive series of checks, external auditors have now awarded our organisational quality the new ISO 9001:2015 certificate.

“We strive for excellence every day. This is a direct reflection of the nature of our work. We have an obligation to be the best. All of our stakeholders expect it. We’re very proud of being the first multinational company in our sector to gain ISO 9001:2015 certification.”

The new ISO 9001:2015 requirements were published on 23 September 2015. To comply with these, Dorel Juvenile Europe swiftly updated its existing quality management system, achieving certification on 20 November 2015, just weeks after the first audits were carried out.
