In order to maintain a Quality Management System which conforms to the ISO 9001:2015 standard, a gap analysis of the company‚Äôs current system was produced to identify areas for improvement and offer solutions for implementation. With the assistance of TMEP, Stemco revised their current system to the new ISO standard which allowed the company to conduct business with current and new clients who require their suppliers to have a Quality Management System which conforms to the ISO 9001:2015 standard.
