Asia Pioneer Entertainment Holdings has announced that its subsidiary has been awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification for “provision of repairing service of electronic gaming machine parts” after a successful audit.
APE began internal preparation for certification in August 2019 by evaluating its
existing procedures and aligning them with the new requirements of the Quality
Management System (QMS). The process wrapped up in December.
APE Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Herman Ng stated, “Our
decision to work towards ISO 9001:2015 accreditation demonstrates our additional
assurance to our clients. We aim to provide high-quality and consistent products to
our clients and our ongoing investment in technology and development. We look
forward to be benefiting from this globally recognized standard of our expanding
business in the Macau and Asia market.”
To achieve ISO 9001:2015 certification, a rigorous and comprehensive company-wide audit is performed by a recognized certification agency. APEs’ audit was performed by SGS Hong Kong Limited.
