ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized quality management system, published by the International Organization of Standardization. It provides a structure and set of principles to assist companies to improve the efficiency of their practices and customer satisfaction. Nipponflex received its Quality Management System ISO 9001: 2000 certificate in November 2004 from Bureau Veritas Certification. Every year since, Nipponflex has been audited by this independent certifying entity and has been awarded recertification.
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognized environmental management system, published by the International Organization of Standardization. It provides a framework to assist companies in limiting their negative environmental impacts. This framework includes establishing an environmental policy and plan within the organization, implementing that plan, and monitoring and reviewing that plan. Nipponflex received its Environmental Management System ISO 14001 certificate in December 2007 from Bureau Veritas Certification. This limited certification provided by Bureau Veritas Certification certifies that Nipponflex meets the ISO 14001 requirements for the implementation of an environmental management system within the company.
NOTE: As with the quality management system, the environmental management system is also monitored regularly by Nipponflex.
