Gemline and Prime Line Complete Third Party QCA Audit
The Quality Certification Alliance (QCA) announced Bridgeport, Connecticut-based Prime Line and Lawrence, Massachusetts-based Gemline have completed third-party QCA Audits.
Six of the 14 QCA founding members have now completed the independent auditing process of each company's headquarters as the QCA is ready to share its accreditation program with the industry.
Gemline and Prime Line join BDA Inc., Leed’s, Logomark and Sweda Company in achieving this important milestone on the road to QCA accreditation.
“QCA accreditation helps members design processes and procedures to insure their products meet appropriate standards today and in the future,” said Jonathan Isaacson, CEO of Gemline and QCA founding member. “Accreditation gives end-buyers the ability to purchase with confidence as it relates to quality and compliance. This kind of initiative is good for the industry, member companies and our customers.”
“Through this certification program, QCA provides a consistent framework for product quality and safety standards, which are becoming more and more important as legislation that directly effects the promotional products industry continues to be enacted,” said Jeff Lederer, executive vice president of Prime Line. “Providing products that meet the QCA Seal of Approval requirements are important not only for the overall future success of QCA members, but the industry as well,” Lederer concluded.
To date, 11 of the 14 founding members have successfully completed the stringent self-audit stage and are in the third-party audit verification process, and six founding members have passed third-party audits of their headquarters facilities—just as the organization is ready to share its accreditation program with the industry.
