Instarmac achieves new ISO Accreditation

May 2017

ISO have recently made changes to the 9001 and 14001 accreditations and Instarmac Group plc are proud to announce that during their recent audit they received a positive recommendation for continued registration of OHSAS 18001 and achieved transition to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.

Darren Gough, Quality and Operations Manager, says: “This is a fantastic achievement by the team involved as the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 standards will become obsolete in September next year.”

ISO have re-written the entire 9001 and 14001 standard to create one framework. The new framework focuses on 10 points, including Context of the Organisation, Leadership, Planning, Support, Operation, Performance Evaluation and Improvement and these points will be applied to all standards to create a uniformed framework for all new ISO certificates.

“During 2016 we created a gap analysis plan to understand ‘where we were’ and ‘where we needed to get to’ in preparation for our transition audit in 2017,” explains Gough.  “The transition to the new 2015 versions encouraged us to focus more on risk analysis and any challenges we foresee in the management of our business processes. Using tried and tested tools, such as FMEA, we were able to determine our biggest risks, highlighting actions required and implementation driven by leadership and management commitment.
