The AIMS system was certified to the ISO 9001 standard in 1994. Since then, all manufacturing sites have completed the transition to ISO 9001:2008, then on to ISO 9001:2015. In addition, our Sundsvall, Sweden facility is also certified to ISO 14001 environmental management standards.

Our quality system registrars, SRI and BV, complete annual surveillance audits to assure our ongoing compliance. Due to our ongoing cooperation with customers, and intense self-auditing program, the AIMS system is continually improving in order to meet our customer’s needs and expectations. Our quality management system is also registered with ANAB, RVC and/or SWEDAC.
