Triple UKAS ISO accreditation for GPS
Posted on 7 September, 2017 by Tony Harrison
GPS and GPS Links have achieved triple UKAS accredited ISO certification including OHSAS 18001-2007 health and safety, ISO 14001-2015 environmental and ISO 9001-2015 quality management systems.
As the only accreditation body recognised by the UK government for public sector contracts, UKAS standard is now one of the key criteria in the supplier selection process, providing independent evidence of legal compliance and business conduct, as well as operating procedures.
Certification to the latest 2015 standard was awarded to both the MCC manufacturing and software-systems integration businesses following a nine-day audit conducted by Socotec Certification International.
GPS Managing Director Nigel Harrison said “when we started we didn’t appreciate that it is unusual to take on three standards in one go, but our objective was always an integrated system as the most effective and efficient approach to managing standards. It’s been an exacting process, and I am incredibly proud of the GPS SHWEQ team, and the fact that everyone in the company contributed in some way to the achievement of this valuable trust mark”.
