Quality Assurance

Learn about our quality systems and download certificates and forms.

Silicon Sensing ensures quality of product and service by utilisation of automotive processes and techniques. From here, you can download certificates, audit checklists, supplier requirements and other supporting documentation.

From the inception of a product, quality is our main concern.  Potential problems are identified and resolved before they occur using Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) and Product Modelling.

All product designs are validated in our environmental laboratory, which is certified to the demanding ISO 17025 standard.

Product development is monitored and controlled using the AIAG Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process as a cornerstone.  Once processes are fully developed they are verified using the AIAG Product Part Approval Process (PPAP).

Even when this very stringent requirement has been met, we still will only release product to customers when we have verified the manufacturing process against the requirements of the German automotive standard VDA 6.3.

Our policy of continuous improvement is reflected in all that we do.  However, when things go wrong, the 8D process is used to contain the problem, to establish the root cause and to ensure no problem occurs again.

The company is currently certified to the Quality system standard BS EN ISO 9001.

As well as caring for our customer needs, we also care about the environment.  All our sites are certified to the environmental standard ISO 14001.
