Hansen Products (NZ) Limited are justifiably proud to
be certified to ISO 9001:2008 by Telarc SAI Certifying
Authority. ISO 9001:2008 is a Quality Management System
which aids to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of
any organisation, to manage the processes and activities
used to eliminate risk to the customer and to ensure that
its products and service conform to customer requirements,
thus ensuring customer satisfaction. The ISO 9001 definition
of “quality” refers to all the features of a suppliers product

As part of ISO Certification, a fully documented quality
system must be in place which is audited by an approved
accreditation body at planned intervals (usually every
6 months). These audits ensure that the system is being
implemented and followed. Every 3 years a recertification
audit is conducted.
Internally our Process covers internal audits of the system.
Inspections have been implemented at the following stages
of manufacture; goods inwards, first off, in process, final,
and customer return analysis. Non-conformances are
checked to ensure corrective actions are taken and are
the actions effective. The system covers training, that all
processing is fully documented, that work instructions are
available for all tasks, that all documentation is controlled,
and customer requirements are clear.
We are certified for the design, manufacture, assembly,
packaging, distribution and marketing of our products.
WRAS formerly known to the industry as WRC. WRAS
approval means that HANSEN™ Threaded Pipe Fittings are
approved for use with potable (drinkable) water, and that
they will not leach contaminants into the water. The Water
Research Council in the UK is the highest recognised water
testing organisation in the world and we believe HANSEN™
are the only plastic threaded pipe fitting in Australasia to
achieve this standard.
The Product and Assessment Group of the Scheme finds that
the use of these fittings or units, when correctly installed,
will not contravene the requirements of The Water Supply
(Water Fittings) Regulations 1999, The Water Byelaws 2004
Scotland or the Water Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1991
and that a reference to the fittings or units will be included
in the Scheme’s Water Fittings and Material Directory.
