Australia’s Future Submarine designer, Naval Group Australia, has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification after implementing a new management system across the company.

ISO 9001 is recognised worldwide as the international benchmark for quality within an organisation.

The certification was achieved by implementing a quality management system (QMS) across the company that matched the ISO 9001 quality management principles, including strong customer focus, motivation and implication of top management, process approach and continual improvement. 

The internationally recognised ISO 9001 certification is valid for three years. 

"By achieving ISO 9001 certification, we have demonstrated to our customer and suppliers that the quality systems we have in place meet the high standards set out by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO)," said Brent Clark, interim chief executive of Naval Group Australia. 

"Recognition of our quality management system through ISO 9001 is a welcome validation of the high standards we have set ourselves at Naval Group Australia and is an important milestone for the company."

Naval Group Australia engaged TQCSI-Yaran to conduct the audit through a rigorous tender process. TQCSI-Yaran is a majority Aboriginal owned and operated joint venture between TQCS International and Yaran Business Services to provide certification of ISO management systems focused on Indigenous companies and companies employing Indigenous Australians. 

The company is also a partner of the Indigenous Defence Consortium (IDC). Naval Group Australia signed a letter of intent with the IDC in 2016 to explore opportunities to include Indigenous Australians and Indigenous businesses within the organisation’s supply chain, particularly within the Future Submarine Program. 

Naval Group was awarded the Future Submarine contract in 2016. The first stage of design of the Future Submarine, known as functional analysis, was completed on schedule in October 2017. At the fourth Submarine Science, Technology and Engineering Conference in Adelaide last year, Minister Pyne revealed the submarines will be 97 metres in length and 8.8 metres in diameter.

The next stage of design, known as feasibility studies, has commenced as planned, according to Defence.

All 12 submarines will be built in Adelaide at Osborne.
