Vapor Shark to be Granted Vaping Industry's First ISO 9001 Certification by NSAI

MIAMI, Sept. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vapor Shark Inc., a US producer and international distributor of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) devices and e-liquids, announced today that the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) has issued a recommendation for Vapor Shark to become certified to the ISO 9001:2015 standard for quality management systems.

The NSAI auditors conducted an extensive on-site assessment, evaluating all aspects of Vapor Shark’s corporate business model, including the formulation, bottling, packaging and traceability of its propriety and partner brand e-liquid products. They confirmed that the Company’s operations meet established quality standards for customer satisfaction and international regulatory compliance.

“Vapor Shark is dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality products available on the market,” said Vapor Shark founder and CEO, Brandon Leidel. “Companies like ours have a responsibility to offer products that are standardized, verifiable and transparent. This holds especially true for e-liquid, which is why we have been a strong advocate for sensible industry regulation, and have modeled our manufacturing process to conform with international standards.”

According to Chris Ford, Director of Quality and Compliance Services for Chemular Regulatory Compliance Specialists, this announcement marks the first time an e-liquid manufacturer will receive ISO 9000 series accreditation, further validating Vapor Shark’s stated commitment to operating at the highest levels of corporate citizenship.
  
“This is very big news not only for Vapor Shark, but for the industry as a whole”, stated Ford. “Vapor Shark will be the first e-liquid manufacturer to achieve ISO 9001 certification, and in line with Vapor Shark’s mission to be a model and leader in the industry, they’ve taken their approach to safety and raised the bar for the rest of the industry.”

ISO 9001:2015 is internationally recognized as the quality management standard that presents guidelines intended to increase business efficiency and customer satisfaction. The goal of ISO 9000 is to embed a quality management system within an organization, increasing productivity, reducing unnecessary costs, and ensuring quality of processes and products.

Vapor Shark is widely recognized for its consumer advocacy efforts and for its promotion of principled, industry-wide business practices. The Company was the first manufacturer to commission and publish independent laboratory analysis of popular e-liquid products, identifying and publicly reporting on potential areas of concern for sellers and consumers.
