ISO Quality and Environmental Management standards have been revised and HMG are delighted to announce their continued accreditation.
The International Standards Organisation (ISO) adopted new revisions to the well-known 9001 and 14001 management standards in September 2015, giving organisations a three-year transition period in which to adopt the new requirements. They are constructed around the seven principles of customer focus, leadership, engagement, process approach, improvement, evidence-based decision making and relationship management.
HMG first achieved accreditation to the quality management system in 1996 and to the environmental management system in 2000, becoming the first powder coating manufacturer worldwide to do so. Since those times, the standards have changed dramatically from prescriptive descriptions of operations to focus on continual improvement of the business processes, bringing the standards in line with the well-established ethos of the Company.
“Maintaining our accreditation to these revised standards demonstrates and underscores the Company’s sustained focus on continual improvement in our key areas of customer service, product quality, development of new technologies, and promoting eco-friendly products to reduce the impact of both HMG’s and our customers’ activities on the environment”, commented Denis Corry, HMG’s Technical Director.
