Valeport secures highest international quality standards

21 July 2017

Valeport reports that it continues to demonstrate proactive compliance with the highest international quality standards.

In July, Valeport, a leading UK manufacturer of oceanographic, hydrographic and hydrometric instrumentation underwent a number of ISO audits, successfully updating the firm's certifications to ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management and ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management. For the first time in 2017, Valeport is also now certified to BS OHSAS 18001, the internationally applied British Standard for occupational health and safety.

ISO 14001:2015 is the latest standard which sets out the criteria for an environmental management system. Certification to this standard evidences Valeport's work to measure and improve the subsea supplier's environmental impact.

ISO 9001:2015 is a standard to support organisations to meet the needs of customers, stakeholders, as well as statutory and regulatory requirements. ISO 9001 particularly examines customer focus, the motivation of Valeport's management, their process approach and drive for continual improvements, which ensures that quality management is at the heart of Valeport's activities. 

This year, Valeport were also audited to BS OHSAS 18001 for the first time. This new accreditation formally recognises Valeport's commitment to occupational health and safety across the company's processes and systems.

Kevin Edwards, Valeport sales and marketing manager, commented: "Our accreditation has been supported by ACS Registrars and all the team at Valeport. We are delighted to be able to continue to assure our customers and supply chain partners that Valeport provides only outstanding products and services."
