Responsible Distribution is a comprehensive quality program dedicated to protecting the health and safety of employees, communities, and the environment.
Our Responsible Distribution program is third party certified. We have successfully completed a documentation verification assessment of RD conducted by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. in 1995. We have also successfully completed on-site management systems verifications conducted by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) conducted in December 1999 and Parker and Associates in September 2003. Eagle Group has conducted the last two onsite audit verifications, March 2007, May 2010 and most recently January 2015. All audits were successfully completed. We have maintained our certification as a condition of membership in NACD.
In addition to RD we have also implemented aspects of the ISO 9000 series quality model. We have documented procedures and policies in an ISO format and verify all incoming raw material.
We have a Quality Manual which contains our company Mission Statement as well as applicable quality process procedures not addressed in our RD manual. This manual along with our Plant Standard Operating Procedures would contain the documentation of our in-house quality control processes and are available for review.
