British Standards Institution (BSI) / ISO
The British Standards Institution (BSI) is the national standards body of the United Kingdom. BSI produces technical standards on a wide range of products and services and also supplies certification and standards-related services to businesses.
This specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that an organisation can use to enhance its environmental performance. Every business has a moral responsibility to ensure that it is doing everything it can to positively influence change and its impact on the environment.
Minimising our impact on the environment is a huge part of everything with do here at Ultraframe, with many of our systems using manufacturing processes that eliminate or minimise waste. An example of our commitment to the ISO 14001 framework is the installation of solar panels.
ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system. Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
