management system


High-quality products, intelligent solutions and services are the basic prerequisites for surviving and succeeding in the market. Our goal is to always fulfill and, if possible, exceed the agreed customer requirements for these performance characteristics. 
HIMA maintains a QHSE management system that integrates quality occupational safety and health and environmental protection.

Quality management

HIMA introduced a quality system in 1990. The HIMA quality system was certified for the first time in August 1994 by DQS, Frankfurt (Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Zertifizierung von Managementsystemen) and is subject to yearly audits. Certification in accordance with quality standard ISO 9001 is the basic prerequisite for numerous product certifications.

Environmental management

HIMA considers itself obligated to make a contribution to environmental protection and thus a contribution toward maintaining the natural basis of life, as well as to provide protection against health impairments. We take environmental aspects into consideration in the development, manufacturing and sales of our products. Our management system, certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001, is the basis for HIMA's careful handling of resources and avoidance and reduction of waste. Download our Environmental Policy.

Functional safety management in accordance with IEC 61508: Development

In 2002 HIMA was the first manufacturer in the world to verify to TÜV Rheinland the establishment of a functional safety management system (FSM) and its application in product development and product manufacturing.
