Cryptera Quality

Cryptera Quality

Quality built into the production process

In order to maintain our focus on the “heart” of secure, reliable payment solutions, the manufacturing of product components are done by a carefully selected network of sub-suppliers. These manufacturing experts must prove their ability to consistently meet our stringent criteria for quality and dependability before they earn the right to make Cryptera components.

We then assemble the products ourselves at our headquarters in Denmark, handle the critical security processes, conduct quality assurance and control of all finished products and provide ongoing technical service and support. It’s an approach that keeps us focused on what is most important: meeting our customers´ needs.

We also have earned ISO 9001 certification, proving that all quality processes are well defined and adhered to. But don’t just take our word for it. We encourage customers to conduct on-site visits to verify and approve the security of our production processes.

Here are some of our certifications:

  • ISO 9001:2008
  • ISO 14001:2004
  • OHSAS 18001:2008
  • MasterCard TQM Statement of Compliance
