July 7, 2010 Torrance, CA
Rapiscan Systems, a leading supplier of security inspection systems, today announced that it has achieved ISO 28000:2007 certification from the leading global certifying body for its Malaysian based manufacturing facility.
The ISO 28000:2007 management system specification has been developed and introduced in response to the demand from the transportation and logistics industry for a common security management standard to assess security risk and implement controls to manage security threats. The certification recognizes Rapiscan Systems' efforts to enhance the critical security of their supply chain, specifically within the transport and logistics system.
Mr. Ajay Mehra, President of Rapiscan Systems, commented: "As the internationally recognized standard for supply change management, this certification is a very important milestone for Rapiscan Systems. It demonstrates Rapiscan's corporate quality vision and our dedication to deliver world class quality and reliable solutions to our customers. While a number of the largest global logistics companies have achieved certification, the fact that Rapiscan Systems is the first security screening equipment manufacturer to accomplish this milestone demonstrates our industry leadership and commitment to supply chain excellence."
