4th April 2013
The IRIS and ISO re-audit took place at UniControls in the middle of March. Not only did the company pass the audit successfully, but it even achieved a rating improved by as many as 22 points. The increase in the score was enabled by implementation of several systemic measures recommended to us by the certification authority (LRQA) within the framework of the audit held last year.
