Falcon Environmental Services achieves ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Certifications

Certifications

The team at Falcon Environmental Services are delighted to have been awarded ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations.

In this blog, we explain what it means for us as a company and, more importantly, our customers. 

What Are These Accreditations?

ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are standards created by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). These standards provide widely recognised frameworks for implementing and sustaining effective management systems across various organisations. Here’s a brief overview of each:

ISO 9001: Quality Management Systems

ISO 9001 is a standard that establishes the criteria for a quality management system (QMS). It is founded on several key quality management principles, such as a strong customer focus, active involvement of top management, a process-oriented approach, and a commitment to continual improvement.

The objective of ISO 9001 is to ensure that organisations consistently deliver products and services that meet both customer and regulatory requirements, while continually enhancing their processes.

Key aspects of ISO 9001 include:

  • Customer Focus: Understanding and meeting customer needs and striving to exceed their expectations.
  • Leadership: Establishing unity of purpose and direction within the organisation.
  • Engagement of People: Ensuring that employees at all levels are competent, empowered, and engaged.
  • Process Approach: Managing activities as processes to achieve more efficient results.
  • Improvement: Continually improving performance.
  • Evidence-based Decision Making: Basing decisions on the analysis and evaluation of data.
  • Relationship Management: Managing relationships with interested parties (such as suppliers) to optimise performance.

ISO 14001: Environmental Management Systems

ISO 14001 is a standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organisation can follow to minimise its environmental impact, comply with applicable laws and regulations, and continually improve in these areas.

Key aspects of ISO 14001 include:

  • Environmental Policy: Establishing a policy that includes commitments to compliance, pollution prevention, and continuous improvement.
  • Planning: Identifying environmental aspects and impacts, legal and other requirements, and setting objectives and targets.
  • Implementation and Operation: Ensuring resources, roles, responsibilities, and authority are defined and that competence, training, and awareness programs are in place.
  • Checking and Corrective Action: Monitoring and measuring key characteristics of operations that can have a significant environmental impact, ensuring that corrective and preventive actions are taken when necessary.
  • Management Review; Regularly reviewing the EMS to ensure its continuing suitability, adequacy, and effectiveness.

Accreditation and Certification – What is the Difference?

While these standards are often referred to in terms of accreditation, it’s important to note that organisations become certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, not accredited.

Certification involves an external audit by an accredited certification body to verify that the organisation meets the requirements of the standards. Accreditation, on the other hand, refers to the formal recognition that a certification body is competent to carry out ISO 9001 or ISO 14001 certification.

Achieving ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications demonstrates to customers, employees, regulators, and other stakeholders that the organisation is committed to quality and environmental management.

What Does This Mean for Our Customers?

  • Trust and Confidence: Customers can trust that the company is committed to quality and environmental stewardship.
  • Enhanced Reputation: The company’s certifications can enhance its reputation and credibility in the market.
  • Competitive Advantage: ISO certifications often set companies apart from their competitors.
  • Better Communication: Clear processes and continual improvement mechanisms typically lead to better communication and fewer errors or misunderstandings in customer interactions.
  • Corporate Responsibility: Customers may feel more comfortable engaging with a company that demonstrates a commitment to ethical practices and sustainability.

In summary, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications assure customers that a company is dedicated to maintaining high standards in quality management and environmental responsibility.

I was extremely pleased with Falcon Environmental Services. They were efficient, reliable, friendly and professional. I was happy that I found a local company to help with the problem of pests in my attic. They were always available to talk to explaining the situation to me and how they were going to deal with it. I really felt that they went over, above and beyond what I expected. Nothing was too much trouble, my calls and enquiries always returned with a friendly voice, care and consideration. I would honestly recommend them and use their company again if the need arises. It’s very comforting to find good, reliable professional people you can rely on. Thank you to everyone at FALCON.
