BMT Group is delighted to announce that it has been successful in transitioning to the 2015 versions of ISO9001 and ISO14001 standards well ahead of the required September 2018 deadline.
This transition has been actioned well in advance so that we can take the lead in supporting operating companies through their transition processes.
• The ISO9001 (Quality Management Standard) accreditation is a key part of the strategy to ensure good governance and focus on quality and efficiency of delivery to clients.
• ISO14001 is the Environmental Management Standard. Group has a fully integrated management system addressing the quality, environment and H&S standards.
The differences in the 2015 standards are in the areas of:
• Establishing the context of the organisation – most organisations do this implicitly but it now needs to be formalised.
• Risk management - we already have a BMT risk management culture but need to formalise further
• Senior management accountability – the new standards stress that the most senior level of management must demonstrate accountability.
• Structure - the standards have moved to a uniform structure making integration easier.
BMT Group received its three-year re-certification in February. The company is further accredited to OHSAS18001.
