ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for the quality management of businesses. It applies to the processes that create and control the products and services European Packaging Distributors Ltd supplies. It prescribes systematic control of activities to ensure that the needs and expectations of our customers are met.
Implementing a Quality Management System served to motivate our staff by defining their key roles and responsibilities. A resulting benefit being improved efficiency and productivity. It has also helped European Packaging Distributors Ltd to identify any product or service deficiencies. From this, improvements are made and developed resulting in fewer complaints. Our customers can’t fail to notice that orders are met consistently, on time and to the correct specification, gaining us many referrals and glowing testimonials.
Having ISO 9001 accreditation further demonstrates European Packaging Distributors Ltd’s commitment to quality, our customers, and a willingness to work towards continuing improvement and efficiency. It has enhanced our company image in the eyes of our customers by demonstrating the existence of an effective quality management system that satisfies the rigours of an independent, external audit.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Storage & Distribution of packaging materials, is an internationally recognised standard which provides certification that can be accepted by customers in place of their own audits. This comprehensive scope covers quality, hygiene, & product safety which provides a benchmark for best practice in all aspects of the management of businesses registered & approved to hold the Standard.
The Standard requires the ongoing development of a documented quality management system which provides the framework to enable the management policies & results of risk assessments to be implemented consistently, along with regular audits designed to promote continual improvement. European Packaging Distributors are pleased to announce to all customers and suppliers that we have recently been audited and subsequently certificated by ISOQAR Ltd to this standard.
This new certification, in conjunction with our existing ISO 9001:2008 certification, gives further reassurance to all customers that European Packaging Distributors continue to strive to improve the professionalism of its day-to-day operation, paying particular attention in this instance, to the demands of the food industry.
