IET Inspec demonstrates continued quality through ISO 9001 recertification

IET Inspec prides itself on the quality and the integrity of its data, working to the highest level of service and satisfaction to maintain rigorous standards for its production process. Upholding this internationally recognised certification aligns with these values. 

Giles Grant, Director of Knowledge Services and Solutions at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), states: “The IET works to uphold the highest standards in our systems and processes on a daily basis, and we are pleased to have demonstrated this during our recent audit to successfully retain certification to the latest version of the ISO 9001 standard.”

The ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization. Achieving certification to the latest version of the ISO 9001 quality standard is an indicator of quality and consistency, ensuring that specific requirements for a quality management system are followed.

IET Inspec first achieved ISO 9001 certification in 2005 and undergoes recertification every three years in addition to regular audits by the British Standards Institution (BSI), a member body of the ISO, in order to maintain its certification to the latest version of the ISO 9001.

IET Inspec is one of the most definitive databases for subject-specific and interdisciplinary research in the fields of engineering, physics and computer science. It contains over 21 million records of research literature, and for 50 years it’s been an essential discovery tool to numerous prestigious institutions around the world.
