Tuesday, August 29, 2017
MIPAC’s Quality Management System has been certified by the BSI group, confirming that it complies with the requirements of the new ISO 9001:2015 standard for the provision of process automation and control services. Previously MIPAC was certified ISO 9001:2008 for 10 years.


The ISO 9001 is the most recognized quality management system that helps organisations to meet expectations and needs of  customers, allowing continual monitoring and managing quality across all operations, outlining ways to achieve it, benchmarks and consistent performance.


The revised ISO 9001:2015 encompasses improvements from the 2008 standard which relates to:
• A stronger focus on risk management and customer satisfaction
• More emphasis on leadership and commitment
• Fewer prescriptive requirements
• More requirements on communication and strategic alignment
• Formal introduction of ‘interested parties’.


MIPAC is proud to be certified to the new standard and continues commitment to refine and improve its quality deliverables to its customers.

MIPAC RPEQ engineers meet legal requirement

Friday, August 26, 2016
It is a legal requirement for all engineering services being carried out for Queensland (QLD) projects, regardless if they are completed interstate or in QLD, they be supervised and certified by a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ).
MIPAC has RPEQ qualified engineers on staff who can carry out or directly supervise relevant engineering works in the fields of electrical, control system and network design.
If a Client requires certification of their engineering design or that of a third party, this can be provided by a MIPAC RPEQ. The MIPAC RPEQ who certifies the design takes responsibility for the engineering design in terms of compliance with the Act so must be satisfied that all drawings, calculations, data, assumptions and methods utilised in the design are properly documented and are accurate. The Client must be able to provide an adequate level of documentation for the certification to be provided. 
For further information how best to ensure your legal obligations are met for QLD based projects please contact us.
