Last week, we had our annual ISO 9001:2015 audit. This year’s audit was a unique experience in that the auditor wasn’t here with us at Pro-Active Engineering. Instead, the audit was conducted remotely using teleconferencing. Even with the constraints of the format for the audit, the auditor was very happy with our quality system and our team’s compliance to all of our processes.
