The Certificates

ISO 9001:2015 this is the most commonly used quality standard that specifies the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS) in business operations. The certification process, assessed by an independent accrediting auditor, attests that the organisation operates using globally recognised best practices in the areas of processes, documentation and training to support its employees. The QMS impacts operations at all levels, from everyday administrative procedures, to the delivery of products and services, sales and marketing, and committed customer service with an approach to risk-based thinking.

ISO 14001:2015 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organisation to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organisation subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organisation identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.

OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) is an internationally applied British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It exists to help all kinds of organisations put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety performance. It is a widely recognised and popular occupational health and safety management system.
