somas and ISO certificates
Within a business management system, a company’s overarching goals are converted into various processes focused on the customers and the businesses’ needs. The business system serves to give a clear concise idea of how a company will fulfill its mission and also how every employee can help contribute to facilitate this fulfillment.
There are a number of international requirements and standards that serve as the basis for the certification of a company’s business management system. SOMAS has chosen to follow the standard regarding quality (ISO 9001).
Our business management system is also on its way to become certified in accordance with ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2017, in other words, certification of both our environmental and work-environment. This will be done during 2018.
