In the last few EPC-UK have made great progress towards one EPC-UK Integrated Management System, and have achieved an overall certification. All businesses have achieved ISO 9001 (Quality) and OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety) and we have retained our ISO 14001 accreditation (Environment) at both Alfreton and Harwich sites. EPC-UK has recently added 22301 (Buisness continuity) to its accreditation profile.
Our team of auditors complete audits across businesses and standards ensuring we can improve consistency of process, initiate best practice and show how we continually improve.
Safety, Compliance and Environment Management
We constantly review customer requirements and ways in which to enhance and improve customer solutions with good results. The Defence and Security division of EPC-UK, achieved ISO 27001, Information Security, which increased our ability to tender in the Military environment.
In addition Bramble Island site in Harwich has been awarded the “Investors in People” accolade.
The Avetta accreditation is a supplier pre-qualification and regulatory compliance validation required during the tender process. It provides our customers with the peace of mind that EPC-UK has the necessary insurances, polices and procedures in place, helping them save time and money, streamline their qualification process and increase their supply chain visibility.
“EPC-UK’s customers expect us to have robust systems in place to ensure we meet their requirements every day, our portfolio of standards show that we do. Our suite of standards is at the core of EPC-UK Strategy – One Team, One Focus, One Vision, One Mission. Delivering confidence to our stakeholders and supporting the businesses sustainability going forward”
