Philips Lumileds receives ISO/TS16949 certification
Philips Lumileds said each of its three design, development and manufacturing sites – San Jose, Penang, and Singapore – have received ISO/TS16949 certification with zero non-conformities.
ISO/TS16949 is an international standard for automotive industry suppliers and it defines quality management system requirements. Philips Lumileds is one of the world’s leading suppliers of LEDs for exterior vehicle applications.
The certification process requires two separate audit programs at each site. The first is to verify that the company and site are ready for a full assessment. The second is to confirm that the management system in place conforms to the requirements. Any non-conformance to the standards must be corrected prior to certification.
“Thanks to the efforts and commitment of the entire company, this process affirms that Philips Lumileds is leading the quality effort for power LEDs,” said Darren Smith, VP Quality and Zero Defect at Philips Lumileds. “This is an ongoing effort through which we will continue to minimize defects, variance and waste in the production process for our LUXEON, SnapLED and SuperFlux products.”
