ISO 14001 accreditation awarded to Biosite

3 Dec 2016

Following a successful external audit, Biosite were found to have robust Environment Management Systems (EMS) in place and have therefore been awarded the ISO 14001 accreditation.

First published in 1996, ISO 14001 Environment Management System (EMS) standard is an internationally recognised systematic framework to manage the immediate and long-term environmental impacts of an organisation’s products, services and processes.

Simon Oakley, Biosite Operations Director comments,”In this era where environmental challenges affects us all, this accreditation is essential to our business. Being awarded the ISO 14001 accreditation acknowledges the strict procedures that Biosite have put in place and through our planned efforts to continually build on this platform, we aim to improve awareness to all our industry partners.”

All ISO standards arereviewed every five years to establish if a revision is required in order to keep it current and relevant for the marketplace. ISO 14001:2015 is designed to respond to latest trends and ensure it is compatible with other management system standards and recent changes to the standard relate to:

  • Increased prominence of environmental management within the organisation’s strategic planning processes

  • Addition of proactive initiatives to protect the environment from harm and degradation, such as sustainable resource use and climate change mitigation

  • Improving environmental performance added
