SHEQ MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
AECI’s businesses and/or operating sites are required to align their SHEQ Management Systems with an external standard against which third-party audits may be undertaken. The most commonly adopted such standards are:
- ISO 9001: the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system. Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
- ISO 14001: the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system. It provides a framework that an organisation can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.
- ISO 45001: the international standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organisation proactively improve its related performance in preventing injury and ill-health.
- NOSA: a South African SHE Management System
- Responsible Care ®: the global chemical industry’s voluntary initiative for the continual improvement of performance in SHE practices.
- FSSC 22000: a company-level certification based on a scheme developed by the Foundation for Food Safety Certification. The standard helps organisations ensure the supply of safe inputs and finished products in the food and beverages sector.
- ISO 22716: the international standard of good manufacturing practices (“GMP”) for the cosmetics manufacturing industry. It also describes the basic principles of applying GMP in a facility that produces finished cosmetic products.
