Podium Engineering awarded ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certifications

1 February 2018

Pont Saint Martin, 1 February 2018 – Podium Engineering has been awarded by TÜV SUD Group the quality management ISO 9001:2015 and the environmental management ISO 14001:2015 certifications.

ISO (International Standards Organization) defines parameters for compliance with the highest standards of quality, environmental responsibility, and other characteristics of world-class organizations’ operations across their materials, products, processes, and services.

The decision to undergo the certification process reflects Podium Engineering constant focus on continuous improvement, their commitment to providing high-quality and consistent products and services to their clients, as well as the company’s collective effort by management and employees to embrace a responsible and rational approach to managing our environment.
The new standards emphasize value for both the company and its customers.

The ISO 9001:2015 certification is the assurance that robust, clearly defined procedures are in place in all business areas such as R&D, production, supply chain management, risk management, handling of documents and data, and that strong business continuity processes are effectively in place. At Podium Engineering detailed KPIs and feedback are continuously measured and gathered, providing teams and management with valuable insights about the processes that are carried out every day. The compliance to ISO 9001:2015 standards not just ensures 100% traceability of supply chain, but also helps converting customers feedback into project tasks for the R&D team.

The ISO 14001:2015 certification acknowledges the company determination to manage the environmental impact of its businesses through measurable objectives such as waste disposal methods and further reduction of its power consumption. Other important goals include minimizing use of resources by processing environmentally friendly and recyclable materials in a way that is not harmful to health, in addition to using water, electricity and raw materials sparingly.
