Quality Assurance

High Quality is critical to us!

We have earned a reputation for producing a consistently high standard of product, and offering a high standard of technical support and after sales support. We work hard to maintain and justify that reputation, and we have held independent Quality Assurance certification since 1992.

Concept gained NATO's highest quality standard, AQAP 1, in 1992, specifically for the design and production of non-toxic smoke systems, for the military, industrial and security marketplace.

In 1995 Concept was certificated to BS EN ISO 9001, for the same scope, after the MoD decided to restrict the activities of the Defence Quality Assurance Board to only the most critical military systems.

ISO 9001

In 1999 our sister company, Concept Smoke Screen (specializing in security smoke systems) also gained EN ISO 9001 quality assurance approval.

As design is incorporated within the scope of our accreditation, we can demonstrate to our customers and clients that we have the professional ability to design and manufacture systems to meet their specific needs.

Our Quality Assurance manager is an IRCA Registered Auditor, and a Fellow of the Institute of Quality Assurance.

Testimonials

Warsash Maritime Academy

"We have always found that one of the most effective ways to recreate the sort of conditions caused by a fire, either on a ship or off-shore structure, is by adding safe, artificial smoke.  Cadets sometimes think they can remember escape routes but when they are confronted with almost no visibility due to the thickness of the smoke, they realise just how disoriented you can become.  The Academy has used Colt's for years now and we have always been more than happy with the way they perform and the service we receive from Concept Smoke Systems!"
