ISO 9001-2015 and ISO 14001-2015 Announcement 2017NuGenTec is proud to announce that we have been awarded sustainable, environmentally responsible ISO 14001:2015 standard and the new quality management ISO 9001:2015. ISO (International Standards Organization) defines parameters for compliance with the highest standards of quality, environmental responsibility, and other characteristics of world-class organizations’ operations across their materials, products, processes, and services.
In late 2016; NuGenTec made the strategic decision to upgrade from its certified ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System to the latest ISO 2015 standards, as well as adding the current ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System for its headquarters in Emeryville, CA and it’s production site in Oakland, CA. The Emeryville site has been ISO 9000 certified since 2014. The internationally acknowledged ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification recognizes companies that have adopted environmentally responsible practices in their business processes.
NuGenTec’s local quality team spent the last six months providing organizational guidance to achieve all of ISO’s certification requirements in these categories. After thoroughly reviewing all of our quality and environmental management systems, our third-party auditors concluded that NuGenTec’s management systems met all of the updated requirements, and awarded our organization certification to the new ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards.
Major changes to the ISO standards include an increased focus on continuous improvement, which helps ensure a more integrated global focus on initiatives with a specific focus on improving NuGenTec’s end-user customer experience. The new standards emphasize value for both the company and its customers. Leadership and management commitment are also areas of increased focus in the new ISO standards. Expanding NuGenTec’s focus in these areas helps ensure accountability at all levels of the organization and facilitates the transition of top-level goals into tactical action plans.
With its sustainability strategy, NuGenTec is striving to minimize its environmental footprint by increasing energy efficiency and continuously improving measures taken to protect people and the environment.
