A fundamental normative requirement is the monitoring of supplier performance. This applies to suppliers of products, processes and services relevant to production or the final product, and therefore applies to Schaeffler`s suppliers. This is an essential element of the continuous improvement process and participation in this process is necessary, even in the absence of a contractual agreement, as a characteristic of cooperation. On 26 May 2009, the Schaeffler Group and IG Metall welcomed the new agreement in a joint press release. Berthold Huber, president of IG Metall, said the Schaeffler Group had overcome a critical factor: the time it took to cope with the sharp drop in orders in the metallurgical industry. Norbert Lenhard, chairman of Schaeffler`s works council, stressed that the occupational safety agreement was “an essential guarantee for the employees in the future alliance with Continental”. Schaeffler Group Chairman Jürgen Geißinger stressed that the new agreement was “the concrete result of intense and constructive negotiations between all parties concerned”. The agreement reduces the costs needed to avoid redundancies in the near future. The competitiveness and position of the Schaeffler Group on the world market are decisively determined by the quality of its products. Impeccable quality and reliability of the products and services provided by suppliers have an appropriate influence on highly technical production facilities and product quality. The Schaeffler Group`s quality requirements for suppliers and subcontractors (customer-specific requirements) were then aggregated on the basis of international quality standards. In September 2002, the company`s quality management system was successfully recertified for the process-based quality assurance model, in accordance with the new ISO 9001:2000 standard.
The quality management system of the public limited company Transforwarding? eské Bud? jovice has been approved by Lloyd`s Register Quality Assurance in accordance with the following quality management standards: As companies face increasingly stringent legal requirements, watertight quality assurance agreements and efficient quality systems play an increasingly important role. Even before German unification, the BAUFA Institute was an approved control centre of the Landesgewerbeanstalt (LGA) in Nuremberg and participated, within the framework of a cooperation agreement, in the quality assurance of lightweight multilayer composite materials. Our services range from preventive consulting and the development of prevention and recall strategies, to product safety and certification consulting, the preparation and negotiation of quality assurance agreements, the handling of insurance disputes and the management of product liability cases. The growing shortage of skilled labour on the German labour market makes it necessary to agree with other EU Member States on a common culture of quality assurance in vocational training.
