Ramtron International Corporation Achieves ISO 9001:2000 Registration

7/11/2002 - BSI, Inc., the leading North American management systems registrar, announced today that it has granted ISO 9001:2000 registration to both Ramtron International Corporation and its subsidiary Enhanced Memory Systems, Inc. Ramtron is the leading developer of next-generation non-volatile memory products and Enhanced memory Systems develops high-performance memory products.

The ISO 9000:2000 family of standards, released in December 2000 as the successor to ISO 9000:1994, is an internationally recognized quality management system standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO 9001:2000 is a process-based standard that enables organizations to directly link business objectives with business effectiveness.

To obtain certification, companies must implement a QMS that accounts for a range of company activities. Specifically, certification to ISO 9001:2000 covers the design, testing and sales of products offered by both Ramtron International Corporation and its subsidiary, Enhanced Memory Systems, Inc. Certification demonstrates to customers, through an independent third-party, that the company operates a QMS in accordance with the standard.

“Certification provides our customers with the confidence that Ramtron’s quality systems meet the strict international ISO 9001:2000 certification standards,” said Domokos Hadnagy, Ph.D., vice president of Quality and Reliability Assurance. “We are confident that the company will be able to leverage its quality management system to continually improve its operation and products.”

“We are very pleased to announce the registration of EMS to the ISO 9001:2000 standard”, reported Ronald D. Mathis, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales of BSI, Inc. “Registration demonstrates their corporate commitment to quality,” Mr. Mathis added.
