ISO Standards & Vape Industry – VELXTech is Creating Vape Products For Global Market

By September 15, 2019April 6th, 2022No Comments

At VELXTech, we are committed to creating high-quality products that serve customers all over the globe. Quality, usability, ease of use, and industry innovation are the tenants that we live by.

Since we’re one of the rare CBD vape company to employ more than 100+ R&D and 250+ production engineers in our facilities, the emphasis that we put on innovation is quite easy to see.

But, what do we do to ensure that every vaping device that comes down from our production line is top quality?

To satisfy our customers’ ever-growing demands for high-quality products, VELXTech went through the rigorous process of obtaining both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certifications.

Before we go into detail on how those two certificates allow us to better serve our customers, let’s briefly take a look at what ISO standards are, and what kind of an impact they have on the vaping industry specifically, and global trade generally.
What Are ISO Standards & Why Do They Matter?

Before we go into detail on how those two certificates allow us to better serve our customers, let’s briefly take a look at what ISO standards are, and what kind of an impact they have on the vaping industry specifically, and global trade generally.

What Are ISO Standards & Why Do They Matter?

ISO standards in vape industry

ISO Standards are a set of recommendations developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO, from Greek “isos” meaning equal) that seek to standardize products, services, and production and management processes around the globe. This is done to ensure that all products and services satisfy a uniform set of customer expectations and that they are all of the same quality, no matter where in the world they are produced or sold.

The International Organization for Standardization was founded in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries met in London to create an organization that would “facilitate the international coordination and unification of industrial standards.” On 23 February 1947 the new organization, ISO, officially began operations, and started to create and issue standardization protocols that covered everything from food production management to quality and environmental management.

In its 72 years of existence, the International Organization for Standardization has published exactly 22,743 international standards and their related documents that cover every imaginable industry.

In that time, the organization has been the herald of numerous benefits for consumers around the globe. Because of ISO, most large companies around the world operate similarly, creating products and services that perform to a high standard.

Medium-size enterprises, such as VELXTech and many others in the vape industry, reap numerous benefits from our ISO certifications:

  • The ability to meet regulatory requirements to sell our products in every country in the world.
  • Gaining access to suppliers who require certification, as well as easier access to markets in the European Union and the United States.
  • Increased customer confidence because the products that we make are high-quality, safe, and reliable.
  • Increased customer satisfaction because the products are manufactured through processes that aim to reduce our environmental footprint and preserve the environment.

ISO standardization process is long and difficult – it includes a round of meetings with country representatives, industry stakeholders, and experts. That’s why a vape-specific ISO standard is not yet available in full. The ISO/TC 126/SC3 deals with measuring nicotine, propylene glycol, and glycerin in vape liquids but further standards are still under development.

This doesn’t mean that vape companies don’t have access to ISO standards they can benefit from. Quite the contrary – there are actually two that every vape manufacturer should consider.

The ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certificates that VELXTech now holds were obtained precisely because we want our customers to feel confident in our products, and to know that we have processes in place that will keep them and our planet safe. Let’s explore how these two ISO standards help VELXTech (and the whole vaping industry) be the best that we can be while providing you with an unparalleled vaporization experience.

ISO 9001:2015 Certification & Vaping – VELXTech’s Control Systems That Guarantee High-Quality Vape Devices

ISO 9001 vaping

VELXTech recently joined a family of more than 1 million international companies from various industries that have obtained the ISO 9001:2015 certificate.

Adhering to the ISO 9001:2015 standard allows VELXTech to develop a robust quality management system (QMS), which brings additional benefits to our customers.

Those ISO 9001:2015 benefits are:

  • Meeting customer requirements – if your company needs to comply with certain government regulations when importing vape products, having an ISO-certified supplier will, most likely, be one of those regulations. With VELXTech, you can rest assured that every vape product that you import will be ready for the market, passing all customs controls and governmental inspections.
  • High-quality of company processes and specific products – specific guidelines in ISO 9001:2015 allow us to keep every process in our company in check. Process breakdowns that can lead to inferior products are quickly identified and dealt with, regardless of whether they happen in the R&D phase or on the production line. This means that our devices are always the best that they can be or – as we like to put it – the best on the market.
  • Increased product consistency & stability – thanks to our water-tight processes, we are able to manufacture a large number of units every day. Every one of the products we ship out is identical – those that have any type of flaw are identified and disposed of quickly. This allows us to deliver high-quality vaping devices that result in a minimal rate of factory defects and returns.
  • Increased customer satisfaction with our products – not only are our products not prone to failure, but we’re also experts in dealing with customer complaints and resolving them to everyone’s satisfaction.

Here’s a quick visual representation of how VELXTech’s Quality Management System works in reality. As you can see, during every step of the process we have experts in charge of checking the inputs and outputs, ensuring that every device that leaves our assembly line complies with our high standards of product excellence.

ISO 14001:2015 Certification & Vaping – VELXTech’s Unwavering Commitment to Environmental Sustainability

ISO in vaping

VELXTech, much like our sister company GeekVape, has always been concerned about the environmental impact of our large production facilities. With an output of 7.7 million pieces per month (for cartridges alone – the number goes up when we add devices), we have had to be very careful when monitoring what kind of an impact we have on the planet.

That’s one of the main reasons why we decided to get ISO 14001:2015-certified. We wanted all our customers to rest easy knowing that all VELX products are manufactured through sustainable environmental practices that follow the industry-specific, internationally established standards.

The ISO 14001:2015 certification allows VELXTech to:

  • Minimize environmental footprint and the risk of pollution incidents – the systems we have in place here at VELXTech allow us to know exactly how much emissions and waste we produce on a daily basis. With that information, we can continuously implement various measures that reduce that waste, reducing our environmental footprint. Additionally, we have created safeguards that help us minimize pollution incidents, which include air, water, and soil contamination, as well as noise and thermal pollution.
  • Develop our business while remaining environmentally sustainable – while we are focused on growth, we don’t develop our business at the expense of the environment. Our growth is limited by our ability to implement environmental solutions that can guarantee that we are growing sustainably, and without a detrimental effect on our environment and people living in it.
  • Ensure compliance with environmental regulations of developed countries – want to import vaping products into your country? In some cases, your country will demand that your supplier meets some predetermined environmental standards. With VELXTech, you’re in full compliance and don’t have to worry about problems that might arise from this during import or sales.
  • Improve the environmental performance of our supply chain – to be fully compliant with ISO 14001:2015, we also have to vet our suppliers. This means that we only work with suppliers that can meet the expectations laid out in our certification. Our customers can then rest assured that their money is not supporting companies that are having a detrimental impact on the environment.
  • Save cost by focusing on waste and energy management – by focusing on our resources and how we use them, we are able to cut costs significantly. We transfer some of those savings to our customers, making sure to reduce prices whenever we realistically can. Additionally, since we substantially lower the number of environmental incidents, we avoid paying for clean-ups and fines. As we budget less for those, we all able to find additional ways to make our vape products more competitive on the market.
