LSPI celebrated 20 years of ISO 9001 certification in 2016. In early 2017, LSPI achieved the newest ISO 9001:2015 certification. LSPI’s commitment to strict quality standards is part of the full-service business model, and ISO certification utilizes outside industry-specific auditors to ensure that the company’s quality program is not only written well, but that comprehensive quality management standards are adhered to consistently. A strong ISO quality management system ensures that LSPI’s products and services effectively 1) meet customer and regulatory requirements, 2) benchmark continuous improvement, 3) identify areas for optimization, 4) focus on knowledge sharing and knowledge archiving, and 5) mitigate risk throughout the business. Elective participation in ISO certification is a business investment and a global differentiator for the company.
