Latest LRQA Audit – Continued Approval for Management Systems

Boccard UK Ltd continues to be certified to the exacting standards of ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and BS OHSAS 18001:2007 following the latest external audit this March.

A four day change to approval and surveillance audit was carried out by the LRQA on the 24th – 27th March 2014. This audit involved visits to a number of Boccard sites throughout the UK and covered all three of our Management Systems – H&S (OHSAS 18001), Environmental (ISO 14001) and Quality (ISO 9001).

Surveillance

The primary objective of these visits was to verify the continued compliance of our operations with the requirements of OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. The audit also set out to asses how well we meet the expectations of our clients.

Change to Approval

This was the first time that TFM North (Doncaster and Tata Scunthorpe) had been audited by the LRQA for inclusion on our ISO 9001:2008 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certifications. Doncaster had already been added to the ISO 14001:2004 certificate in October 2013.

Results
  • The assessment indicated that the systems remain well implemented, monitored and reviewed.
  • All assessment criteria were met as defined in the visit plan, the last report and as per the standards being assessed.
  • Continued certification to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and BS OHSAS 18001:2007 was recommended for the Sale office.
  • It was recommended that the Doncaster location can be added to the certificate in relation to ISO 9001:2008 and BS OHSAS 18001:2007.
  • No major non-conformances were identified that require the attention of management.
  • Corrective action is to be taken to close out the 10 minor non-conformances identified.
