CODIPRO adapts to changing standards

24/06/2016

New versions of the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 quality and management standards were recently published. The quality service at ALIPA Group, to which CODIPRO belongs, is therefore adapting its procedures and processes to ensure compliance with these new versions.

CODIPRO always places quality and respect for the environment at the heart of its concerns. For several years now, it has been committed to ongoing improvement and has implemented a management system based on the benchmarks ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

Why are these standards changing?

To remain relevant to the market and respond to the new economic and ecological realities, quality standard ISO 9001 and management standard ISO 14001 are reexamined by experts every 5 years at international consultations.

What is changing in particular?

Among the approximately thirty changes, the structure of the new standard ISO 9001:2015 is changing to align with other management system standards like ISO 14001:2015. It also assigns greater importance to risk analysis.

In addition, expertise management appears in the text for the first time, implementing mechanisms for sharing knowledge to take into account new discoveries, technology and the participants' recent experiences.

As for ISO 14001:2015, it responds to new ecological challenges and brings together all of the environmental challenges into a single text, thus allowing companies to manage these within a global approach.

Implications for CODIPRO, its partners and users of lifting rings.

CODIPRO is putting in place a plan of action to respond to the new requirements of these standards, which are no longer linked only to the relationship between customers and suppliers but also to the needs and expectations of partners, suppliers and staff.

CODIPRO will be audited in June by the organization Euro-Quality System (EQS), an independent certification body recognized for its expertise in carrying out a number of audits.
