The ISO 14001 standard is an Environmental Management System which provides businesses with an internationally recognised framework for setting up an environmental management system (EMS). Organisations can use the standard to reduce waste, improve resource efficiency and cut waste management costs.
By following each of the stages and setting up a robust environmental management system, we not only reduce our environmental impact, but also improve efficiency.
ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. The standard helps us to streamline our operations, work effectively with all stakeholders and our supply chain. This means we can provide consistently excellent services and products to our customers.
BS EN 1090 for structural steel and aluminium is a requirement for products sold in Europe. Any organisations who design and/or manufacture steel or aluminium components must adhere to this standard.
Since July 2014, structural steelwork and aluminium fall under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which means aluminium or structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork).
This covers any structural component that has been designed and fabricated to meet the BS EN 1991 series of standards (Eurocode 3 and 9) for steel and aluminium structures in buildings. These now need to show that they comply with BS EN 1090-1.
