QMI Achieves ANAB accreditation to SFI® 2005-2009

ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), the US accreditation body for management systems, has accredited QMI for SFI ®2005-2009. On September 13, 2006, QMI received confirmation of its successful completion of the ANAB SFI ®2005-2009 accreditation process making QMI the first certification body accredited to the SFI ®2005-2009 Standard. Accreditation to SFI 2005-2009 marks the latest step in QMI’s efforts to provide the most rigorous and comprehensive auditing services to its forestry clients. The accreditation audit involved an office audit of QMI documentation by ANAB auditors and a witness audit of a full scope SFI registration audit. In June, three ANAB auditors observed QMI forestry auditors Martin Litchfield and Glenn Keays as they conducted the initial registration of Acadian Timber Ltd. to the SFI®2005-2009 standard.
