Grupel with Bureau Veritas CertificationCarlos Martins
Nowadays, Grupel is certified with Quality (ISO 9001) and Environment (ISO 14001) for an international entity, Bureau Veritas certification, which recently proved our evolution in processes, products, and services provided by Grupel.
Grupel in the July did another renovation on its Bureau Veritas certification, but also a transition to the 2015 new version of quality and environment norms - ISO 9001:2015 e ISO 14001:2015, respectively the two management system regulations that are the most used worldwide which improves significantly the quality management systems and environment in companies.
The new version has advanced techniques used by companies around the world in terms of management systems, in which we highlight the inclusion of risk management practices in the activity plan and strengthening the involvement of the top management in the usage of the management system integrated.
The ISO 9001 is related to the quality management system and with the intent to optimize the processes. This certification was created with the perspective that certified companies can achieve their goals and guarantee the ability of efficiency in production but also while delivering their products and services, creating solutions that can meet the company’s needs and all of it involving.
Grupel being certified by this regulation means that it meets the requirements of ISO 9001 that transmits to our customers/partners security and confidence in the brand and its quality.
In relation to ISO 14001, this is one of the only norms that is based on an environmental management standard that for companies it has requirements so that they can identify, control and monitoring environmental issues. This environment seal is something of great importance when comparing to other norms, and for that, usually, this is the first one that is implemented when a company is trying to have this kind of certification and quality management.
This type of implementation in an organization, big or small, is with the purpose to develop a structure that minimizes the as maximum as possible the impacts of the environment, and in case of the ISO 14000 these certifications consists in: environmental management standard, environmental auditing, environmental labeling, environmental communication, life cycle, environmental performance, environmental aspects, and terminology.
For Grupel, the attainment of these certifications gives a stamp of quality and confidence to our processes, services, and performance, in business but also in environmental sustainability.
In addition to these certifications, Grupel has another type of specific certifications from other countries related to the safety and quality of the product. However, the quality and environmental certifications are the ones that are an international reference thanks to its importance, not only for customers but to our business partners.
In the future, we aim to expand out certifications in a way that we can improve our processes and quality of our services and products, so that the brand Grupel can continue to be associated with quality.
