Elfac’s work is quality-assured through a series of certifications. These certifications provide the customer with a guarantee that we conform to the agreed standards, and comply with delivery requirements.
Quality management has always been at the top of the agenda at Elfac, and back in 1993, we were one of the first Danish companies to be awarded the ISO 9000 certificate. This certification has since been upgraded.
Elfac operates in a process-oriented way, which is reflected in the way our quality management system has been developed. Great emphasis is placed on the optimisation of processes and workflows, which is based on continuous sampling and process monitoring.
In wanting to improve our quality even further, Elfac has chosen to work with the most important tools from the automotive industry’s expanded and rigorous version of ISO 9001, namely, TS16949. This includes, amongst other things, APQP, PPAP and FMEA. These require comprehensive documentation of all details of the production process, from conceptualisation/development to logistics/delivery.
In cooperation with the Danish certification company HYTEK, 17 of Elfac’s employees have been awarded certification in the international standard IPC-WHMA-A-620, which has been prepared by the IPC and Wiring Harness Manufacturer’s Association. It is the most widely-used industrial standard regarding approval criteria within the cable and wiring sector.
IPC certification provides additional assurance that the cable systems used for critical equipment – such as for medico purposes – fulfil all the necessary specifications.
UL stands for ”Underwriters Laboratories”, and is an American product safety consulting company. Since 2000, Elfac has been “UL listed” in the categories UL ZPFW-2 and UL-ZPFW-8, which provide a specific quality assurance in wiring harnesses.
This certification ensures that our solutions comply with the applicable high standards in relation to specifications and choice of materials in the US and Canadian markets.
