Sika Everbuild were thrilled to announce that they have been certified to the new international standard for quality ISO 9001:2015 by the British Standard Institute (BSI).
The road to achieving ISO 9001 2015 began in 2014 with John Peers, Quality Manager and Andrew Stockill, Quality Assurance Co-Ordinator attending seminars on the changes. In 2015 a three day training course helped them to gain the knowledge of the auditing process, transition stages and how to implement the new standard within the company. An initial assessment was conducted in February 2016 which established that they were taking the correct approach to meet the requirements. All that was required then was to pass the BSIs audit to the new standard and be passed by their compliance team afterwards.
Additionally, Sika Everbuild achieved the environmental standard ISO 14001:2015 from Quay Audit UK. Gaining certification for the new Environmental Management Systems started with a gap analysis which identified procedures and processes that needed changes to meet the requirements of the new standard. if that isn’t enough, a busy time continues for the EHS team at Sika Everbuild as they work towards certification for the Occupational Health & Safety standard, OHSAS18001, later this year.
