Design, Manufacturing, Quality Control
TUSA dive equipment, designed and manufactured to extremely high ISO 9001 standards.
At Tabata, our goal has always been to provide our users with innovative equipment of the highest quality. To ensure quality, Tabata has been certified by the International Standards Organization to its ISO 9001 standards for Tabata Japan and Tabata Taiwan. The ISO certification provides independent assurance of our commitment to developing and manufacturing innovative equipment to the highest international quality standards.
Our regulators are an excellent example of how we develop and test our equipment before the diver receives it. We subject all regulators to rigorous testing using an ANSTI machine before shipping. We test inhalation and exhalation resistance, work of breathing, and intermediate pressure settings on all regulators. This is their way of assuring our customers that they can rely on TUSA regulators for many years of enjoyable use. This quality control applies not only to regulators but every Tabata product.
