Quality Standards

Both companies prior to merging (Fine Line Stencil and Metal Etching Technology) are certified to ISO 9001:2008. These certifications are still current until BlueRing Stencils is certified to the new standard. We are in the process of transitioning to the ISO 9001:2015 standard with a completion date of November 2017.


Note: For the purpose of a uniform and all-inclusive Quality Management System, all companies are referred to as “FCT Companies” for ease of integration and compliance. All divisions and companies are operated as individual legal entities. FCT Companies is not a legal entity.

ISO 9001:2008

ISO 9001:2008 is a family of standards for quality management systems and is an internationally recognized certification. It is maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is administered by accreditation and certification bodies. An ISO certification demonstrates that the company or organization certified has consistent processes that are being applied. These processes are documented extensively within the ISO system of quality management, which is represented by the ISO certification. This gives customers assurance of proper quality control, eliminating the need for additional audits to confirm the appropriateness of a company’s quality management system.
