ISO 9001, 14001, 18001, CE certification. Yes, and... what for?

In June, the external surveillance audit regarding the integrated management system was successfully completed, without non-conformities or observations, only an opportunity for improvement: the DDP transport to be treated as an outsourced process. Practically, here are the benefits this certification brings to our company.

The TOTAL Romania Management System integrates the requirements of the ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 into a coherent system, with the ultimate goal of achieving the objectives we planned. These certificates are international standards that guide companies in understanding and applying best management practices designed and improved globally in recent years.

The benefits that the implementation, maintenance and improvement of management systems bring to our organization are numerous: the increase of our customer’s satisfaction by ensuring a high and stable quality of our products and services, financial performances, a better work productivity, identifying and keeping risk under control, environmental issues etc.

Through the integrated management system certification, TOTAL Romania demonstrates stakeholders compliance with reference standards and legal requirements relating to quality, environment and occupational health and safety. Since ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 were revised in 2015, the transition to the integrated management system requirements of the new standards will be completed through the certification renewal audit in June 2017.

Also, to prove the quality of both types of bitumen produced at Ozun, we obtained the CE1 accreditation from the INCERTRANS certification company, who audited the production process and the bitumen in June. No observations or non-conformities were identified. The CE mark demonstrates compliance with quality standards imposed on all producers in the European Union.
