New UKAS ISO 9001 & 14001 : 2015 Certification 17th October 2016

UKAS ISO 9001 & 14001

PSP have recently been certified to the new UKAS ISO 9001 & 14001 : 2015 standards putting us ahead of our competition.

This is beneficial to our customers as they can be assured that our quality and environmental systems and processes are to an agreed standard recognised internationally. PSP can also offer fabricated items in Aluminium and Mild Steel which can be CE Marked for the welds to BS EN 1090 Execution Class 2.

The old quality legislation has been revised and improved meaning stricter qualifying criteria for applicants. As set out in the new criteria, systems now need the input and review of directors however this was not a problem for PSP; Our SHEQ Manager, Mark Stones, carefully handled the application from start to finish resulting in the award of both ISO 9001 & 14001 Certificates. In order to complete the process, we completed the following steps:

– Each Department’s processes and procedures were reviewed at director level with input from all relevant members of staff

– Information found from the review was reviewed and the previous systems were updated in order to bring them up to the new standard

– After the new systems were put in place, all departments were then audited in an internal formal report to ensure all actions were followed correctly. Anything found to be incorrect was fixed at the source and was classed as a quality misdemeanour (NCR)

– External auditors were invited to approve and validate the systems to the new 2015 standards. The audit took place over 5 days and consisted of two stages: Stage one was two days of theory led audit and Stage 2 was 3 days of practical audit testing procedures, reports and forms

BS EN 1090

– PSP also took the opportunity to audit their welding procedures to Execution Class 2 (BS EN 1090). We achieved new factory and welding certifications by retraining and certifying all welding staff and supplying welding samples for testing. The samples were tested for impurities and approved for certification. The procedure also required a full day audit by SCCS to ensure the appropriate standards were met.
