Beginning in April of 2008 ICI Metals made the decision to pursue Registration into ISO 9001:2000. This Quality Management system is set up for any organization which designs, develops, manufactures, installs and/or services any product or provides any form of service. ISO 9001:2008 outlines a number of requirements which an organization needs to fulfill if it is to achieve customer satisfaction through consistent products and services which meet customer expectations. It includes a requirement for the continual improvement of the Quality Management system.

Becoming ISO 9001:2008 registered provides ICI Metals with many benefits. With the QMS in place and working for ICI Metals, the organization is focused towards the Quality Goals. Management is provided with data on a continual basis and able to see progress or lack of progress towards goals and take appropriate action.
