LRQA Audit – ISO 9001:2008 and BS OHSAS 18001:2007

On the 10th & 11th April, an auditor from LRQA visited Head Office and one of our customer sites to complete a surveillance visit for the OHSAS18001 and ISO9001 standards.  We are very pleased to announce that on completion of the audit, recommendation was once again made for our continued certification to ISO 9001:2008 & BS OHSAS 18001:2007.

The auditor commented that:

“…the management system has been well maintained and continues to address the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 & BS OHSAS 18001:2007. Assessment of activities at the client’s site showed the management systems to be well implemented with a good level of planning, control and monitoring evident… A good relationship with the client was evident with good communications lines and no indication of any customer dissatisfaction.”

The assessor went on to note that “several improvements have been made to the management systems and further improvements are now planned via the 2013 objectives.”

The audit report has also provided us with lots of suggestions for further improvements which we will be reviewing and implementing where suitable.

Thank you to everyone at Boccard UK head office and the customer’s site who took part in the audit.  This is a very pleasing result and one which highlights our commitment to continuous improvements and customer care.
