Offshore sportfishing boat manufacturer Regulator Marine said it was recertified by the International Organization for Standardization.

First certified in 2013, Regulator said it has remained one of the few boat manufacturers to receive the manufacturing and service industry ISO certification: ISO 9001.

“The benefits of ISO certification run deep,” Regulator Marine president Joan Maxwell said in a statement. “For our customers, it means that our processes are tested, proven and can be replicated to produce the quality Regulator is known for every time.”

Beyond ensuring quality across Regulator’s full line of boats, ISO certification confirms that the company is providing the best working conditions for employees during the factory build process.

ISO’s established standardization guide enables Regulator to ensure repeatability, which reduces variability, and in turn increases quality, the company said. Continuous improvement and “quality before delivery” are at the heart of Regulator’s manufacturing process and way of doing business, the company said.

Regulator said it has a customer satisfaction score consistently over 95 percent and customer warranty claims on less than 0.5 percent of sales.
