  • Implantation of a OHSAS 18001

    Which are the benefits from implementing OHSAS 18001?

    All the companies must abide H&S Law. This law obliges the companies to integrate its requirements in their management system. OHSAS 18001 manages effectively the compliance with law and also provides all the management methodology necessary for continual improvement.

    This voluntary certification issued by the British Standard Institute (BSI) provides evidence of the company’s commitment to go beyond mere legal compliance, and this is why it constitutes an explicit recognition towards company’s employees, partners Administration and public in general.

    Can I implement OHSAS 18001 without having ISO 9001?

    Having already implemented ISO 9001 makes the work easier, but is not a basic requirement neither means red tape to be considered.

    Is it laborious its integration with ISO 9001/ ISO 14001?

    No, process is really easy. OHSAS 18001 requires some specific procedures, but the most of procedures and work instructions are easily integrable.

    Is it difficult to maintain OHSAS 18001?

    We design tailor-made, practical, simple and effective systems that remain imbricate in the day-by-day of the company.

    How long does it take to obtain certification?

    Implementation period will depend basically on the complexity level of the processes of the company.  In general, implementation period varies between 3 and 6 months, but less of 3 months is not recommendable at all. After this period, it is to be established a previous audit conducted by the certification body chosen, as well as the certification audit, carried out, approximately, a month later the completion of the implementation process.

  • Quality Management System according to ISO 9001

    Which are the benefits from the implementation of a QMS?

    A Quality Management System enhances operational effectiveness as well as coordination, management and control levels, and this is why it has positive effects on the results of the company.

    Moreover, it is evident that it improves the image of the company, contributes to personnel motivation and -what is more important- to the enhancement of customer satisfaction and their loyalty, making it possible the access to more competitive and demanding new markets.

    And what about bureaucracy? Too much red tape?

    Only the documents strictly necessary. We design Quality Management Systems useful and adapted to the idiosyncrasy of each company, mainly practical and without round-about interpretations of the Standard which only lead to day-by-day complications.

    Is it difficult to maintain the QMS?

    Definitely not. We design tailor-made, practical, simple and effective systems that remain integrated in the company’s day-by-day without being something added and bothering that requires time and money to be maintained.

    Do I need extra personnel?

    It is not necessary: we just need one person of your team tending to quality issues and willing to spend little time in them, applying the training provided by us to this purpose.

    How long does it take to achieve certification?

    In the case of SME, and with our methodology, it usually takes six months. Process can be shorter, but then there is a risk that changes might be assimilated wrongly.

  • Implementation of ISO 14001

    Which are the benefits from implementing ISO 14001?

    The implementation of ISO 14001 Standard provides a series of advantages that make it really attractive. In a quite summarised way, we can affirm its implementation and correct maintenance ensures your company is up to date with regard to current environmental legislation, this way avoiding risk situations. Its implementation also improves the image of your company before customers, personnel, partners, Administration and public in general.

    Can I implement ISO 14001 without having ISO 9001?

    Having already implemented ISO 9001 makes the work easier, but is not a basic requirement neither means red tape to be considered.

    Is it laborious its integration with ISO 9001?

    No, process is really easy. ISO 14001 requires some specific procedures such as the control of waste management or a system permitting to be up to date with environmental legislation, but the most of procedures and work instructions are easily integrable.

    Is it difficult to maintain the Environmental Management System?

    We design tailor-made, practical, simple and effective systems that remain imbricate in the day-by-day of the company, so they do not represent something added that might hold up the work or add costs.

    How long does it take to obtain certification?

    Implementation period will depend basically on the complexity level of the processes of the company.  In general, implementation period varies between 6 and 12 months, but less of 6 months is not recommendable at all. After this period, it is to be established a previous audit conducted by the certification body chosen, as well as the certification audit, carried out, approximately, a month later the completion of the implementation process.

  • Implementation ISO 22000

    Which are the benefits from implementing ISO 22000?

    By implanting ISO 22000 we will achieve, among others, the following objectives:

    • To increase the efficiency and efficacy of the Quality Management of our products.
    • To provide evidence of our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements in terms of food harmlessness because of harmonizing the requirements for Food Safety Management Systems, BRC/IOP, IFS, HACCP…
    • To enhance customer confidence and access to new markets because of being internationally renowned.
    • To reduce the costs by avoiding double efforts, reducing audits…

    Can I implement it without having ISO 9001 or ISO 4001?

    Having already implemented ISO 9001 makes the work easier, but is not a basic requirement neither means red tape to be considered. Having already implemented BRC/IOP, IFS, HACCP makes the implementation of ISO 22000 much easier.

    Is it laborious its integration with ISO 9001 or ISO 14001?

    No, process is really easy. ISO 22000 is structured to be easily integrated in ISO 9001.

    Is it difficult to maintain?

    We design tailor-made, practical, simple and effective systems that remain imbricate in the day-by-day of the company.

    How long does it take to obtain certification?

    It will depend on whether we have as basis HACCP or any other similar system for product traceability. In general, implementation period varies between 6 and 8 months. After this period, certification audit is carried out.
