Lyon International Competition is ISO 9001 certified through Armonia, the company organising the event.
ISO 9001 is an international quality management standard used to measure quality and the continuous improvement of performance. ISO 9001 certification is a guarantee that a company’s organisation is sound and that it provides high-quality services.
Armonia has chosen a quality partner to validate its ISO 9001 certification: Bureau Veritas, leader in its field, is recognised by 35 certification agencies across the world.
Armonia chose to subject its internal workings and quality procedures to ISO inspection to show how rigorously organised the Lyon International Competition is.
The company’s management, the commitment of its leaders and the overall implementation of the various services Armonia offers were verified, along with its application of procedures and respect for rules.
The Lyon International Competition must also strictly apply the conditions set out in the 13 February 2013 order from the French ministry of the economy and finances, which defines conditions for registering in French wine competitions overseen by the DGCCRF, the French office for competition, consumer affairs and fraud prevention.
This certification demonstrates to producers the involvement of the Competition in showcasing their work. Consumers, for their part, will see it as a sign of rigorous selection, high quality and a competition worthy of their trust.
