Quality Management and PPAP

We’ve got it under control

We appreciate that you are not only putting your business, but also your reputation, in our hands, and we treat this with great respect. Our protection solutions are designed with great care and the best practices when it comes to production and certifications and you can rest assured that even bespoke protection parts will be high quality and fully certified.

Focus on Quality Management

DBI has a long history of working with Quality Management Systems (QMS). Because a large portion of our business is inside the automotive industry, it seems only natural that DBI became the world's first protective solutions manufacturer to become ISO/TS 16949-certified following the previous QS9000 certification.

We guarantee that we can develop, manufacture and supply protective solutions that fulfil the requirements specified by not only the IATF and the automotive industry, but also those commonly adopted in the machine and engineering industry.

Today, DBI is globally certified and audited by the external auditors DNV, and has received several certificates for our quality, energy and environmental management systems, which meet the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015, IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 14001:2015 standards.

PPAP validation

Delivering the right protective solution is a combined result of development, testing, documentation, validation and delivery. At DBI, the validation method we use is based on the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) and it concludes with PPAP validation.

Because we take on hundreds of projects every year, we have gone further and developed a validation database called simply, the APQP database. This assists us to orchestrate and securely share our processes, files and documents with you throughout development and production.
