Very informative for me as it was my first audit. I have a better understanding of how to partner better with CMA.

CMA is an excellent company to work with, the quality of service is fantastic, they can be counted on to provide great service and products.

Response to our needs is always quick and CMA has gotten us out of potential “jams” with the information needed and (again) in a very timely manner. CMA caters to our needs. Pricing is very reasonable.

I feel that CMA does a very good job. We use several of their services and are very pleased with their service.

It has been a pleasure to do business with Conformance Management.   The level of expertise and professionalism is beyond compare.  Always improving, you have been an asset to our process.

CSM Manufacturing has used CMA for several years and have always found the audit to be beneficial to us for our third party audits. If and when potential issues are found we are notified and are able to correct /improve the EMS system.

Conformance Managment Associates (CMA) is a dedicated, ambitious & result driven consulting organization.

Mr. Poplavsky and Mr. Myhrum have a great experience in the consulting arena in multiple domains with a good knowledge on the legal and regulatory requirements.

Best of all, their expertise in customizing the consulting requirements for any size of plant and speeding up the approvals came handy for us, when we wanted to achieve the plant certifications in a stiff time frame. If you ever need someone to deliver under pressure, no slip-ups, just results, CMA is your contact!

Mr. Poplavsky is proactive in understanding the current state and identifying gaps at the first interaction and brings in quick and practical solutions. I recommend him to anyone looking for consulting requirements.

Very pleased with their service. Always prompt on our quarterly storm water audits. Their legal requirement update log helps keep me informed on legal changes.

Top notch organization that understands business and the automotive tier supply relationship.  CMA feels like a partner (or an extension) of your business.  Very professional and very helpful.

Experience has been very good. They are on time and I don’t have to remind them of when my audits are due.

Cadillac Products Automotive Company has been using the srvices of CMA since we began developing and implementing our ISO-14001 EHS system (when our customers made it mandatory). Your work in this effort is especially important because we did not have qualified individuals in our organazation with the time to study the regulations, interpret them and apply them. The attention you give to detail has shown us practices we had been doing and never recognized the potential for problems but resolved them quickly once pointed out. The benefit of having the background and training you possess has kept us from having to identify someone and train them to to this ourselves. We are a small company and our associates wear enough “hats” as it is. The work you do for us is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Very satisfied with the (Storm Water) service.

CMA consultants are always updated with the latest AIAG rules and regulations, trained well and communicated them to us. They are customer oriented, making always sure the quality system in place fulfills all customers’ requirements. They always propose recommendations for quality improvement. I will highly recommend them to other friends or colleagues.

MMC utilized CMA for its conversion into the ISO14001:2015, first with a comprehensive gap analysis that we used as the road map to the new standard and followed up with an Internal audit to validate our changes and make some last minute tweaks. We completed a five day systems audit with our registrar to the new standard with zero non-conformances, and a recommendation for certification to ISO 14001 : 2015.
