YKK Complies with National and International Standards through Certification

YKK’s conformity to international and national standards is confirmed through our many certifications.  Currently, many of YKK’s production locations have been certified as the following standards

ISO 9001:2015

The ISO 9001 standard provides a proven framework for managing quality that will lead to producing consistently higher-quality products. ISO 9001, as well as other ISO standards, have been developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest developer and publisher of international standards.

ISO 14001:2015

ISO 14001 provides the requirements for environmental management systems (EMS).

An EMS that meets the ISO 14001 requirements provides management tools necessary to:

  • identify and control the environmental impact of a company’s activities, products or services;
  • continually improve environmental performance; and
  • Implement a systematic approach to setting environmental objectives and targets, achieve those targets, and demonstrate that those targets have been achieved.

IATF16949

ISO/TS 16949, in conjunction with ISO 9001, defines the quality management system requirements for the design, development, production and, when relevant, installation and service of automotive-related products
