After a rigorous and multi-part testing procedure, LOWA Sportschuh Gmbh, parent company of LOWA Boots in the U.S., has been awarded ISO 9001 status, a highly prestigious certificate of quality for the development, production, and sales of their outdoor, military, and safety footwear worldwide.

LOWA is the only outdoor boot supplier to have achieved this recognition. The status is only awarded after a rigorous and multi-part audit conducted by the PFI providing indisputable evidence that the quality management systems fulfill the requirements of the stringent DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 standards. PFI (The Test and Research Institute Pirmasens) is an internationally acknowledged service and research center and one of the few institutes allowed to certify for ISO 9001 status. The certificate has to be renewed every three years, and in the interim, there are strict requirements and instructions regarding the procedural, production, and testing documentation that must be continually kept up to date.
