EXIDE ELECTRONICS TO BECOME ONE OF 220 U.S. FIRMS TO RECEIVE ISO 9001 CERTIFICATION

 RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Exide Electronics Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: XUPS), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS), today announced that the Company's primary manufacturing facilities at Raleigh and Leland, North Carolina had been granted "Registered Firm" status under IS/ISO 9001/EN 29001, an internationally recognized standard of world-class quality. Out of a total 621 ISO 9000 registered companies in the U.S., only 305 have qualified for ISO 9001 Certification.
 ISO 9001, Quality Systems is the most comprehensive standard in the ISO 9000 Series. ISO 9001 covers all elements listed in ISO 9002 and 9003 and, in addition, addresses design, development and servicing capabilities. The ISO 9001 certification process entailed an extensive evaluation of Exide Electronics' entire quality management system by the National Standards Authority of Ireland. Quality Control, Customer Service, Training, Test and Measurements, Documentation Control, Design and Development, Corrective Action, Statistical Process Control, Field Service and Purchasing are among the operational procedures evaluated on an ongoing basis.
 James A. Risher, Exide Electronics' President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We believe that certification to ISO 9001 within a precedent-setting 10-month period is a significant achievement and a true measure of our commitment to quality both domestically and abroad. Not only does the ISO 9001 distinction align closely with the quality goals and processes defined in our strategic plan, it is most certainly a competitive advantage in the world marketplace. More and more customers are requiring the ISO certification as a pre-condition to purchasing."
 ISO is the International Organization for Standardization. Its charter is to promote international standards and to facilitate the exchange of goods and services worldwide. ISO is comprised of members from over 90 countries, the U.S. member body being the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). In Europe, the ISO 9000 Standard Series has been adopted by the European Committee for Standardization and the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization as the European Norm (EN).
