Hansen Products (NZ) Limited are justifiably proud to be certified to ISO 9001:2008 by Telarc SAI Certifying Authority. ISO 9001:2008 is a Quality Management System which aids to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of any organisation, to manage the processes and activities used to eliminate risk to the customer and to ensure that its products and service conform to customer requirements, thus ensuring customer satisfaction. The ISO 9001 definition of "quality" refers to all the features of a suppliers product and service, which are required by the customer.

As part of ISO Certification, a fully documented quality system must be in place which is audited by an approved accreditation body at planned intervals (usually every 6 months). These audits ensure that the system is being implemented and followed. Every 3 years a recertification audit is conducted.

Internally our Process covers internal audits of the system. Inspections have been implemented at the following stages of manufacture; goods inwards, first off, in process, final, and customer return analysis. Non-conformances are checked to ensure corrective actions are taken and are the actions effective. The system covers training, that all processing is fully documented, that work instructions are available for all tasks, that all documentation is controlled, and customer requirements are clear.

We are certified for the design, manufacture, assembly, packaging, distribution and marketing of our products.

The WaterMark™ Certification Scheme is a certification scheme for plumbing and drainage products to ensure that plumbing and drainage materials and products are fit for purpose and appropriately authorized for use in plumbing installations. It also provides a uniform national approach to plumbing product approvals. The plumbing industry in Australia & New Zealand supports the use of the WaterMark™ which, when used properly, is an excellent way of helping consumers be confident about the quality of the plumbing product to which it is applied. Material and product failures in plumbing systems can cause contamination of the water system and be a public health concern. Under the Scheme, Hansen Easy Fit Compression Fittings carry the WaterMark approval and are accepted for use in all Australian states and territories & throughout New Zealand - subject to correct installation practices in accordance with AS/NZS 3500 and any local deviations.

The procedures and technical requirements of this scheme are identified in:

WRAS formerly known to the industry as Wrc.

WRAS approval means that HANSEN™ True Fit Threaded Fittings and Easy Fit Compression Fittings are approved for use with potable (drinkable) water, and that they will not leach contaminants into the water. The Water Research Council in the UK is the highest recognised water testing organisation in the world and we believe HANSEN™ are the only plastic threaded pipe fitting in Australasia to achieve this standard.

The Product and Assessment Group of the Scheme finds that the use of these fittings or units, when correctly installed, will not contravene the requirements of The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999, The Water Byelaws 2004 Scotland or the Water Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1991 and that a reference to the fittings or units will be included in the Scheme's Water Fittings and Material Directory.
