In recent months, Arcese UK has obtained the well-known ISO 9001 certification and the renewal of ISO 14001:2015
Arcese has always pursued a quality management system that complies with the most stringent international standards. The first step towards this major goal was taken in 1994, when the company obtained the Quality Management System certification for the first time in Italy. The first of many other acknowledgements and certifications obtained over the years.
Recently, Arcese branch in Tilbury - the Group’s subsidiary in the UK – has obtained two major acknowledgements: the ISO 9001:2015 and renewal of the ISO 14001 certifications issued by the British Assessment Bureau.
ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS) whereas ISO 14001 certification defines criteria for an Environmental Management System (EMS). The Team in UK invested in the ISO certifications to innovate with confidence and deliver essential benefits for our clients and partners and to maintain our constant commitment to continuous improvement in the management of environmental issues and workers' health and safety.
“The certifications obtained are a major step forward for our company” said Steve Day, Operations Manager of Arcese, who continued: “Achieving this goal confirms our constant growth and professional development, without disregarding our major aim, which is meeting our clients’ requirements. The ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:215 certifications prove that we have an internationally acknowledged safety and quality management system. A major achievement that will take us towards new and more ambitions ones."
Arcese UK has over 16 years’ experience within the logistics and transport sector and has grown steadily from its formation in 2005. Since then, Arcese UK has been operating at the highest standards possible and with optimum efficiency showing full commitment and professionalism to customer and employees.
THE BRITISH ASSESSMENT BUREAU
The British Assessment Bureau’s reputation was established in 1969 as a specialist in certification scheme management. In 1997, the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry approved the use of the word ‘British’ in their title, in recognition of their pre-eminent status.
Today, they certify organisations to recognised standards, including ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 27001 (information security management) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety management). They also design and manage bespoke assessment schemes. Such schemes are based on the establishment of standards, which can be developed to be recognised company-wide, industry-wide, nationally, or internationally.
