The Chaplin Quality Management System was initially developed after some customers indicated that a quality system would eventually be required for them to continue to purchase anhydrous sodium sulphate from Saskatchewan Mining and Minerals. This has evolved to the point where most potential or new customers ask about the quality system, and where existing customers verify that the Quality Management System continues to be registered.

The Chaplin Quality Management System is registered by QMI SAI Global to the ISO 9001:2015 standard. The scope of registration includes the mining, processing, and delivery of anhydrous sodium sulphate.

ISO is an international standard-setting body comprised of representatives from various standards organizations. ISO publishes standards that apply to many different fields, with ISO 9000 being a family of standards for Quality Management Systems.

The Chaplin Quality Management System includes various documents that describe the control, monitoring, training, and other activities that must occur to meet the standard requirements. The intent is to ensure that customer requirements are known and met, and to ensure that the Quality Management System continues to improve.

The ISO 9001:2015 registration lets customers know that a defined set of requirements has been met to mine, process, and deliver the anhydrous sodium sulphate obtained from Saskatchewan Mining and Minerals Inc. This knowledge provides assurance for existing, new and potential customers that the systems are in place to ensure that their needs are met.


Kosher is the term used to describe a substance that is in compliance with the Kashrut of Jewish dietary laws. The Kosher Certificate for the anhydrous sodium sulphate produced at Chaplin indicates a status of Pareve Passover. Sodium sulphate is not regarded as a food per se, so the Kashrut requirements pertaining to rituals and permissible foods are not directly applicable.

The Kosher Certification is required primarily because sodium sulphate is used in dishwasher detergents that come in direct contact with items used to cook, serve, and consume food. As a result, process additives and process equipment cannot contain any amount of non permissible substances.
