Last week saw yet another successful assessment for a client. One of our proud boasts is that our clients pass the assessment process, and at the first attempt. Fortunately the assessment, which covered three days, was a complete success with only three OFI's (Opportunity for Improvements).

Our unbroken record shows commitment to our 'Quality Matters in your Business' slogan.

The environmental management system is harder to get than ISO9001 and differs from the quality management standard in that continual improvement must be carried out.

There can be no sliding back. The assessor made the point fairly well: 'You have set the bar at this level and the only way you can progress is to improve on it'.

It is a well-known fact that many organisations insist on 9001 and 14001 as an entry qualification for tenders. This client already has 9001 and now has added 14001. These two qualifications will allow tendering for contracts to be far more successful.

This client can also reap the benefits of ISO14001 and the three R's:

  • Repair - where possible, rather than scrap
  • Re-use if this is possible
  • Recycle- ensure that waste is recycled
  • Reduce energy and resource usage

Key tags: Environmental Management, iso14001
