Company Certificates

Our customers expect the highest possible reliability in all aspects of our business relations and in the safety of our products and complete systems. M&C does not only comply with the legal and government specifications, it goes above and beyond them. All our activities are aimed at meeting the higher demands of the market and the individual interests of our partners. That makes M&C a steady and reliable source of supply for our customers. We are proud of what we have accomplished so far, and this success is for M&C both a task and an obligation. Furthermore, the quality of M&C products is backed by the extensive certifications and accreditations we have received.

DIN EN ISO 9001:2015

Since 1995 our German M&C facilities (Ratingen and Aach) have been certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 standard. To maintain the certified status, we continuously review and improve our processes to ensure reliable quality control and to reach our higher goal of meeting and exceeding requirements. Confidence and highest possible reliability are our guidelines.

AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) status “F” ("Customs Simplifications/Security")

M&C decided in 2011 not only to ensure the achieved quality and safety levels inside our organisation, but also externally along the entire supply chain to our customers outside Europe. Since 2012 we have been certified as an ‘Authorized Economic Operator (F)’. This certification confirms that we meet the criteria of the customs authorities for the highest safety and security standards of our production and supply chain.

Known consignor (KC)

Measures
M&C TechGroup fulfils all requirements of the relevant EU Directives on the Protection of Civil Aviation and was certified with the status “Officially Authorized Known Consignor” by the German Federal Aviation Office. This certificate applies to all airfreight shipments dispatched from Germany or Europe to worldwide destinations.

In addition to the complete security in its own company, M&C also has to verify the certification of the respective transport companies as only so-called “Regulated Agents” ensure the protection of the “Secure Supply Chain”. For our customers, this means a high degree of security also when planning the utilization of their goods.

The benefits at a glance

  • No delay in delivery, commitments given are complied with reliably
  • No loss of quality - no unpacking and checking the goods for security reasons at the airport and therefore avoiding the risk of product or packaging damage.
  • No additional price increases due to security measures such as X-ray controls or hand search.
  • Last but not least: delivery of goods at the highest security level.

Our operating companies in Ratingen and Aach are certified according to the current ATEX directive 2014/34/EU with the subordinate standard DIN EN 80079-34. On this basis, M&C develops, tests and sells products for applications in technical environments that are potentially explosive. With regard to this range of products, M&C has a particularly high level of competence in consulting and implementing.

IECEx

In addition to the ATEX certification for the Ratingen and Aach site, our operating plants are also certified according to IECEx. As a result, we are entitled to register the majority of our explosion-proof products in accordance with the international, harmonized IECEx standard. This means that these products are also acknowledged at international level as approved explosion-proof devices.
