Edinburgh Communications achieves ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 certification

Presented by Simon Parker from QMS

Well, we nearly got a smile out of Ian for this photo! Seriously though, we’re all happy to receive both ISO 9001 : 2015 and ISO 14001 : 2015 certifications from the auditing company, QMS.

Our team has put in a lot of time developing the company over the last 3 years, but not until a year ago did we start thinking about standards. Luckily for us it turned out we don’t have too many bad habits. Only a few documents and processes needed creating to help us manage our customer satisfaction levels, and that completed our requirements for quality management in ISO 9001. Now all we need to do is practise what we preach!

The IS0 14001 was an easier task as the nature of our business is low risk. All the same, we now have a working environmental management system and are monitoring our already low impact to the environment. We tend to only buy what we need to complete customer objectives, which keeps wastage to a minimum, and don’t forget resident petrol-head Ian committing to public transport since making our resource efficiency pledge!

We’re not sitting back after this recent validation, and, after a quick celebration, we’ve started the groundwork for ISO 27001. Watch this space!
