Quality certifications

ISO 9001

The Group has had a Quality Management System since 1970, which it has gradually introduced at all its production plants. The Pirelli QMS was certified in 1993 according to ISO 9001. Now all Pirelli car, truck, motorcycle, agricultural, steel cord and anti-particulate filter plants are certified in compliance with the most recent edition of this standard, just as are the activities of the new logistic hub in Manresa, Spain.

ISO/TS 16949

The Group obtained certification for its quality management system under the ISO/TS 16949 standard in 1999, and has since maintained its certification in compliance with the current version of that standard. All plants that supply car makers have obtained this certification.

ISO/IEC 17025

Since 1993 the Pirelli Materials and Experimentation Laboratory, and since 1996 the Pirelli Pneus (Latam) Experimentation Laboratory, have implemented the quality management system and are accredited in compliance with ISO/IEC 17025. This system is maintained in compliance with the current standard, and the capacity of the Laboratory to perform accredited tests is assessed annually. The Laboratory participates in proficiency tests organised by the International Standard Organisation, by ETRTO or by international circuits organised by car makers. Pirelli ’s car tyres are an excellent example of the Company’s focus on quality, which is confirmed by its pre-eminence in a large number of product tests, and also ensured by the Company’s close links with highly prestigious partners (famous car makers, specialist magazines, driving schools, etc.) for product development and experimentation.
