ISO 9001:2015 Certified

SureFire has been granted ISO 9001:2015 certification for quality management systems. To achieve this certification SureFire undertook a rigorous auditing process and met strict organizational requirements regarding documentation, procedures, and operations. This certification demonstrates SureFire’s dedication to a dedicated, systematic, and quantifiable approach to quality-of-service standards that are vital to a business focused on providing superior products that meet and exceed customer satisfaction and regulatory requirements.

Globally recognized and respected, ISO 9001:2015 standards are set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), a Geneva-based worldwide federation of national standards bodies.

What is RoHS?

RoHS stands for “Restriction of Hazardous Substances,” an authorized directive passed by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on January 27, 2003. The directive requires that manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment reduce the usage of six hazardous substances by July of 2006. These six substances include:

  • Cadmium (Cd)
  • Lead (Pb)
  • Mercury (Hg)
  • Hexavalent Chromium (Cr VI)
  • Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB)
  • Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE)
  • Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP)
  • Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP)
  • Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
  • Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP)

 

What is WEEE?

WEEE stands for “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment” and, like RoHS, is an authorized directive for European Union countries. WEEE establishes criteria for collecting, handling, and recycling waste from electronic and electrical products in European Union countries. Specifically it:

  • Makes it mandatory for manufacturers to mark affected products with WEEE symbol
  • Establishes requirements for WEEE collection
  • Requires resellers to provide WEEE returns at no charge
