Cantium are proud to announce that following a two stage audit process, we have achieved UKAS accredited certification to the internationally recognised ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental) standards. This complements our attainment of ISO 27001 (Information Security Management) certification earlier this year.

What are ISO standards?

The ISO (International Standardization Organization) is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 164 national standards bodies. The ISO standards provide best practice specifications for products, services and systems, to ensure quality, safety and efficiency.

ISO 9001 – The International standard for Quality Management

ISO 9001 is ‘a set of processes, policies and procedures needed by an organization to plan and perform its activities whilst maintaining a consistent level of quality’. The standard helps organisations improve consistency, efficiency and productivity.

ISO 14001 – The International standard for Environmental Management

ISO 14001 is ‘a system for managing an organisation’s environmental practices’. The standard helps organisations reduce their environmental impact, reduce waste and ensure they are operating in an ethical way with regards to their environmental output.

ISO 27001 – The International standard for Information Security Management

ISO 27001 is ‘a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure’. The standard helps organisations implement a robust approach to information security that protects the confidentiality, integrity and availability of client data.

What does this mean for Cantium?

Achieving these standards demonstrates Cantium’s commitment to quality, environmental and information security management. They provide external assurance that our approach aligns to recognized best practice standards and that we have robust, clearly defined procedures in place to support the Quality, Environmental and Information Security Management Systems.

To attain all three certifications within just over a year of launching Cantium is an achievement we are really proud of and a testament to the hard work of our staffs. They demonstrate our commitment to be a leader in our field.

What’s next?

Achieving certification is just the start of the process for Cantium.

At Cantium we welcome feedback and are constantly seeking opportunities to improve how we deliver our services and promote sustainability. The business is committed to maintain these certifications and ensure that quality is at the heart of everything we do.
