Hodgson Sealants is proud to have held the ISO 9001:2008 and 14001:2004 accreditations, as quality is an important part of our business operations. We are pleased to announce that we have now transitioned over to the new ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 standards.
ISO 9001:2015 is a standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system, helping us to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. The new version ISO 9001:2015, replaces the previous version that was in place.
ISO 14001:2015 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.
To ensure that these standards remain up to date and useful in today’s business environment, the ISO standards are reviewed and revised regularly. This ensures they remain relevant to the marketplace and hold their meaning.
The 9001:2015 standard has a new structure which matches closely to the other standards, including ISO 18001 and ISO 14001:2015 which, Hodgson Sealants also hold. It also provides an increased focus on risk-based thinking, emphasizes leadership engagement and is more user friendly than the previous version.
At Hodgsons the transition involved maintaining all the existing management systems but now including sales, marketing, innovation and risk management systems.
Managing Director of Hodgson Sealants, Charles Hodgson states:
We are delighted to have successfully made this transition and demonstrated we have robust systems for taking the business forward into the future!
We are also in the process of transitioning our other standards and our Investors in People Accreditation, confirming our commitment to quality, health and safety, the environment and our employees.
