Critical Reagents Program Quality Policy
The Critical Reagents Program is dedicated to achieving the highest quality product possible through its continual improvement and commitment to the Organization of International Standards (ISO) 9001. By integrating ISO standards throughout its processes beginning with ISO 9001 within the CRP office, ISO Guide 34 in the production labs and ISO 17025 in the conformance testing labs, the CRP will constantly improve its internal procedures and its products for the benefit of the Warfighter and homeland security. The CRP will shape its quality objectives from its customers' feedback and its process monitoring. The quality objectives are communicated throughout the CRP beginning with the directors to the commodity managers to the laboratories. The CRP produces and distributes the highest quality product, and will continue to improve its processes to ensure it remains the premier manufacturer of biological defense assays and reagents.
