Certifications and Significant Awards


ISO 9001:2008 Certification
Anniston Army Depot (ANAD) recognizes its role in support of the American war fighter and the importance of continuous process improvement in order to provide quality service, support and products. After working diligently to implement an International Standard-based quality management system, ISO 9001 certification was obtained throughout five value streams in the depot’s Nichols Industrial Complex. The depot, on May 3, 2007, received a Certificate of Registration confirming the quality management system for the overhaul, remanufacturing, repair and testing of vehicle platforms; gasoline, diesel and turbine engines; weapons and fire control systems; and other supporting systems used in U.S. Army combat vehicles had been assessed and were in compliance with requirements for ISO 9001:2000. A re-certification audit is required on an annual basis and ANAD was most recently re-certified in 2013.


ISO 14001:2015 Certification
ANAD leadership is committed to the concept that combat readiness and responsible environmental stewardship are compatible, achievable and necessary. Our Environmental Management System (EMS) goes beyond compliance-driven evaluations and also focuses on environmental, safety and health impacts while increasing capacity, productivity and production. In 2007, ANAD was granted ISO 14001 certification-the globally recognized EMS standard-- in activities associated with heavy tracked vehicle maintenance and fabrication. Certification is granted on a three-year basis; ANAD was re-certified in 2018.


ISO 18001:2007 Certification
In 2007, Anniston became the first in North America to attain fence-to-fence certification to the Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS) 18001:2007 standard. Every three years, OSHA performs an audit which evaluates safety and health performance against a set of international standards. Principal elements evaluated include safety and health policy, hazard identification, risk control, legal requirement, objectives and targets, document control, emergency preparedness and others. In 2013, a re-certification audit was performed, and the depot is now re-certified through 2016.

Shingo Recognition
Anniston submitted two candidates for the 2007 Shingo Prize, an annual award that recognizes excellence in manufacturing throughout public and private business sectors. The award is bestowed based on a point system which includes employee empowerment, vision, strategy, partnership, quality, cost and delivery. There are three levels of recognition - Bronze, Silver and Shingo Prize. Anniston’s Field Artillery Ammunition Support Vehicle assembly process received a Shingo Silver Medallion. The AGT 1500 turbine engine’s entire process from disassembly to final test was a recipient of a Shingo Bronze Medallion.


Collaboration
Anniston Army Depot and the U.S. Marine Corps were honored for their collaboration on the Assault Breacher Vehicle (ABV) at the eighth Annual Defense Logistics Award Ceremony in Arlington, Va., Dec. 1, 2010. The ABV program, which was initiated in 2002, won the award for Military-Military Collaboration of the Year.


Conservation
Anniston Army Depot was awarded the Governor’s Air Conservationist Award at a ceremony hosted by the Alabama Wildlife Federation Aug. 3, 2012, in Prattville, Ala. For over 30 years, the Alabama Wildlife Federation has presented conservation awards to individuals and organizations making great contributions to the conservation of the state’s wildlife and natural resources. ANAD’s 2012 award was based on the installation’s efforts to replace degreaser products containing air pollutants with products that contain no hazardous air pollutants.


Army Award for Maintenance Excellence
In 2014, ANAD was awarded the Army Award for Maintenance Excellence for its accomplishments in the Assault Breacher Vehicle (ABV) program. The AAME is part of the Chief of Staff of the Army’s Combined Logistics Excellence Award (CLEA) program, which recognizes achievements in the areas of deployment, maintenance and supply operations. The CLEA program highlights the crucial role logistics play in supporting the warfighter and it recognizes both field and depot level Army activities demonstrating excellence in maintenance operations. The AAME is one of three award categories of the CLEA program.
