New JAA TO Quality Policy published



Schiphol-Rijk, The Netherlands. 26 July 2023 – The new JAA TO Quality Policy was officially signed by Paula V. de Almeida (CEO) and Jonathan Hoepel (Quality & Compliance Manager) ratifying the organisation’s multiple quality standards and policies in one well-presented and digestible statement. The Quality Policy was developed with the input of all JAA TO employees following a Quality Training session led by the Quality & Compliance Manager. This is a unique approach to developing such a quality statement and the official signing, in the presence of all employees, highlights the collaborative genesis of this statement.

The Quality Policy provides a framework for quality objectives. It includes a commitment to meet applicable requirements and continually improve through the articulation of vision, and mission, including establishing a quality baseline for all employees to adhere to as means of quality assurance.

CEO Almeida states: “As CEO I am fully committed to upholding all quality objectives that enable our organisation to prosper and progress while nurturing a healthy corporate culture. This new Quality Policy is the normative and strategic compass for excellent organisational performance. With input from all employees, this statement uniquely imparts our company DNA.

JAA TO’s Quality & Compliance Manager Hoepel adds: “Here at JAA TO we do things differently! We give all our employees the opportunity to participate in developing a Quality Policy, which includes the strategic direction for JAA TO going forward. I am extremely proud of the collaboration and input of all employees during the development process of our new Quality Policy!

The signed Quality Policy is publicly displayed throughout the JAA TO facility and available here.
