Subject to an accreditation review annually, internal compliances are audited on a monthly basis to ensure that our QMS is working optimally. As part of our QMS, we keep an online database with corrective measures in order to optimally implement any potential for improvement. Corrective action templates are reviewed by cross-functional teams and then checked for effectiveness. Our corrective action system includes Corrective Action Requests and Corrective Action Reports (CAR), and Supplier Corrective Action Requests (SCAR).
Qualified training is essential to the success of a QMS. Luminator team members receive continuous training beginning on day one, and continuing throughout their careers. Achieving continued improvement in the level of expertise of our employees is vital to increase the quality of our solutions.
