Quality certifications

The focus placed on quality by Pirelli Tyre, both as producer and supplier, is demonstrated by the certifications it has received, which comply with international standards and address aspects regarding processes and products and services.

In particular:

ISO 9001

The group Quality Management System, set up in 1970, has gradually been introduced at all plants. The Pirelli quality system has been ISO 9001 certified since 1993. All of its car, truck, motorcycle, steel cord and particulate filter plants are certified in accordance with the most recent version of this standard.

ISO/TS 16949

To meet the requirements of car makers, 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

In 1993 the Pirelli Group Materials and Products and Outdoor Experimentation Lab implemented a quality management system that is accredited under the ISO/IEC 17025 standard. This quality management system is maintained in accordance with the current standard.

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.

European Regulation no. 1907/2006 (REACh)

Monitoring of the producers and suppliers of raw materials used by the Group continues as part of certification of the compliance of chemical products pursuant to European regulations to protect worker health and the environment. In accordance with REACh requirements, Pirelli does not produce or directly import chemical substances from non-EU countries, constantly controls the chemical substance registration processes implemented by its suppliers, verifies their certification and requests continual updates in accordance as necessary to carry on its business.
