Harlow International achieves ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for meeting international quality standards


Harlow International and its two security service companies, Al Murabit Security Services (AMS) and Al Thaware Security Services (ATS), have been awarded the ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for attaining consistent improvement during operations

AMS and ATS are the first and only Iraqi security companies to be awarded this standard by a UKAS accredited body.

The globally recognised benchmark is the highest accreditation for quality management systems (QMS). The ISO 9001 is only awarded to organisations who reach the highest quality and management standards.

As a challenging standard, ISO 9001:2015 is the international benchmark for a quality management system which enables Harlow International to demonstrate its consistent ability to provide high quality services that meet client needs.

“Harlow International and its security companies have come a long way in the last three years. We have built the business into a company that international corporations and governments can turn to as their sole supplier of in-country turnkey services,” commented Simon Barry, managing director of security services.

Commenting about the recognition, Raymond Macfarlane, QHSE Manager at Harlow International, said, “Our award of the ISO 9001:2015 accreditation shows our commitment to the consistent and continuous improvement of our standards in terms of our internal processes, sustainable practices and operational efficiencies in order to provide the best service there is in Iraq.”

Harlow International is an Iraqi-owned business working across security, manpower, life support, defence, construction, government services and the media. Primarily operating in Iraq, the company has business development offices in London, Dubai and Korea.

ATS and AMS provide security services in Iraq. The companies focus on integrating local knowledge with international standards at all levels for future development.
