…For a product’s consistent quality of use, from start to finish

To get the same quality for a 2 km writing line of a BIC® Cristal® pen from beginning to end; to produce 3,000 flames identical and safe from first to last with one BIC® Maxi lighter; to provide a close, comfortable shave for 10 days with one BIC Comfort 3® shaver ... these are BIC's commitments to its consumers.

…For optimal safety of use

BIC® products are manufactured to tolerances measured in microns, and before any consumer even sees them, they undergo numerous tests and quality checks. BIC® pocket lighters, for instance, undergo more than 50 individual, automatic checks and each one meets or exceeds the requirements of the international safety norm, ISO 9994.
