Our way of ensuring Quality control, through ISO9001 and ISO14001 Certification

As such, Acuflo wanted to prove that its products were equal or better than any other product sourced from around the world. It was important for the market to have the reassurance that every process of Acuflo's activities was independently audited and verified by a third party. That's why Acuflo became an early New Zealand adopter of the ISO9001 quality assurance protocol.
Each year, Acuflo undergoes an independent, certified, third party audit. The scope of the accreditation and audit covers all of Acuflo's activities. All products that Acuflo manufactures, along with their processes, are ISO9001 certified.
