Quality system

NLMK Urals is a modern, high-performance enterprise with world-class technology. NLMK Ural's products are highly competitive and are always in demand in the domestic and foreign markets.

The Company has established a quality control system, which consists of:

  • Feedstock control (incoming control);
  • In-process control (operation control);
  • Product control (acceptance control).

In order to expand its presence the Company is seeking to certify its products and quality management system (QMS) for compliance with Russian and international standards. The plant's QMS was first certified for compliance with GOST R ISO 9002 in 1999 by the Ural certification centre URALTEST in Yekaterinburg. The quality management system enables business process optimization, making them more consistent and easy to manage. This boosts product quality and improves the Company’s performance in general.

NLMK Ural’s quality management system complies with two certification systems: TUV and GOST R. It has two certificates of conformity, issued by TUV International RUS certification body: certificate of compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001-2008 and certificate of compliance with GOST R ISO 9001-2008. The QMS scope includes the development and manufacture of continuously cast billets, wire rod, long products, sections.
