Eramet takes corrective actions as part of a quality process review within its Alloys division
As part of an internal quality process review within its Alloys division, conducted by the newly appointed management, Eramet noted some non-conformances in the quality management system within this division.
Internal analyses carried out to date have not revealed any impact of the foregoing on the safety of the products in use. Customers involved have been informed and further analyses are being carried out in close collaboration with them.
A corrective action plan, in line with the highest international standards, has been defined and its deployment is underway.
The financial consequences of this situation cannot be accurately assessed to date. They are however expected to be material. Eramet board of directors has been informed and the company will further communicate to the market in the context of the publication of its upcoming annual results.
