Trinseo Successfully Transitions to the New ISO Standards

Trinseo is proud to be one of the first global companies to serve customers based on the integrated ISO 9001, IATF 16949 and ISO 13485 certified Quality Management System.

In 2016, Trinseo made the strategic decision to upgrade its certified ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System to the latest ISO standards. This certification granted Trinseo three years to complete its transformation to the new ISO standards – and the transition was a success.

“Increasing Trinseo’s focus in these areas will help ensure accountability at all levels of the organization and facilitate the transition of top-level goals into tactical level action plans,” said Tim Stedman, Senior Vice President and Business President. “The revisions to ISO 9001, IATF 16949 and ISO 13485 were closely aligned with Trinseo’s overall strategic direction, the decision was made to complete the transition in 2018.”

As a result, Trinseo has increased its focus on continuous improvement in the areas of integrated global initiatives and customer satisfaction.

“Risk management and data-driven decision-making have always been a part of Trinseo’s philosophy, and these progressive philosophies were also incorporated into the latest ISO standards,” added Hayati Yarkadas, Senior Vice President and Business President. “These philosophies, which are already part of Trinseo’s daily culture, assist in the identification, managing, monitoring and reduction of overall business risks. Finally, an increased focus on performance measurement and organizational behavior will help create value for our customers and employees.”

The Trinseo Quality team spent the last two years providing organizational guidance in relation to the certification requirements. After reviewing Trinseo’s quality management systems with top leadership, LRQA  third party auditors concluded that Trinseo’s management systems met all of the updated requirements and certified our organization to the new ISO 9001:2015, IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 13485:2016 standards.
