Gaining International Standards Certification for Quality Management at All Plants
For a company with global business operations, it is important to meet a single global standard of product quality.
All Murata Group plants inside and outside Japan have received certification under the international quality management standard ISO9001. Of these, 23 plants that produce automobile parts have also been certified as meeting a quality management system standard unique to the automotive industry (as of Feb. 28, 2017) .
Furthermore, at the Yasu Plant, which is responsible for research and development in such areas as materials development, production technology development, semiconductors, and thin film and ultra-fine processing technology, we are striving to improve our quality assessment technology. The plant has received two accreditations as follows. First, the international standard ISO/IEC 17025 and the laboratory accreditation (JAB) relate to work called "calibration" in which inspections are performed to determine whether there is any aberration in various testing machines and measuring instruments used to inspect the quality of products and components and, if necessary, adjustments are made accordingly. Second, the Japan Calibration Service System (JCSS) certification is evidence of a plant's ability to calibrate measuring instruments.
Through these measures, we aim for continuous improvement of quality management systems.
