Adherence to applicable standards, rules and regulations, directives, and recommendations is crucial in the pursuit of quality assurance and successful quality management. Just as our customers need to adhere to industry-specific guidelines in their fields of business, we too need to undergo regular validation processes in order to certify the flawless conformity of our software products with pertinent regulations.

By awarding the “Validation with Proof of Capability” certificate in 2004, the Society for the Advancement of Quality Management – GFQ Akademie GmbH – confirmed that all CAQ.Net® modular software solutions for quality, environmental, and production management adhere to applicable standards, rules, regulations, directives, and recommendations.

Our products hereby underwent comprehensive product, system, and procedure audits, as well as capability tests, product validations, suitability assessments, and product validations during a time span of three months. It also performed detailed tests assessing CAQ AG Factory Systems software’s complete compliance with demands stemming from standards, rules and regulations, directives, and recommendations.
