NIS ISO 9001: 2000 CERTIFICATION
A system must have an aim. A system must create something of value, in other words, results. Management of the system requires knowledge of the inter-relationship of all the components within the system and of the people that work in it” W. Edwards Deming.
This we have been able to achieve being the only ISO 9001: 2000 Certified Pharmaceutical Company in Nigeria. This feat is a demonstration of our ability to meet the needs and expectations of all stakeholders consistently through the deployment of the “quality function” in all the Company’s operations. For us, the principle of continual improvement is strategic to all we do, thus, the establishment of a Quality Management System of International repute.
The primary concern of any company or organization is the provision of quality products or services. In swipha, “Quality” is something that comes naturally and the Quality Department acts as a partner on the route to quality products and services.
