Ube Industries, Ltd. today announced that the company received a notification from Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Ltd. (LRQA) of rescinded suspension of overall scope of certification following reduction of the scope of certification regarding its Chemicals Company’s ISO 9001:2015 certification as the result of an audit by LRQA. The notification is dated October 15, 2018. Ube Industries had been informed on April 17, 2018 by LRQA of a partial withdrawal of scope of certification and a suspension of overall scope of certification following reduction of the scope of certification for the Chemicals Company’s ISO9001:2015 certification.
