Quality Management System Approvals
ISO 9001 & ISO/TS16949
ISO/TS 16949 combines various particular quality and process requirements for automotive manufacture and service part suppliers. The IATF (International Automotive Task Force) members developed this high standard based on the quality management system ISO 9001. It was approved by and jointly published with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System)
ISO 14001 is an internationally approved family of standards, which specifies criteria and requirements for all kinds of companies and organizations to manage their environmental responsibilities. It provides practical tools to achieve continuous improvement in their environmental behavior.
OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment System)
OHSAS 18001, referring to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, is a management system that helps an organization to control its occupational health and safety risks. It provides guidelines and standards helping to minimize health and safety risks for employees and continuously improve the existing OHS management system.
