Card Quality Management

In addition to ISO 9001, the Kematen, Prachatice, Urdorf and Unterschleissheim sites are also certified in accordance with Mastercard’s Card Quality Management (CQM).

The “physical security” was confirmed for Kematen and the “logical & physical security” for Unterschleissheim and Urdorf.
