InkCycle Earns Three ISO Certifications
LENEXA, KS (January, 2011) — After extensive independent audits, InkCycle, Inc. has achieved the Environmental Management System (14001), Quality Management System (9001), and Occupational Health & Safety Management System (18001) International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certifications. ISO is the world’s largest non-governmental developer and publisher of world standards for business, government and society.
ISO 9001 is a process-oriented structure that is customer focused and emphasizes continuous improvement in quality. By attaining this level of predefined ISO standards, InkCycle has demonstrated its ability to consistently manufacture a product that meets customer, statutory, and regulatory requirements while addressing customer satisfaction through the application of the system.
ISO 14001 certification requires an organization to manage, measure, improve and communicate its environmental program in a systematic way. It drives the company toward operating environmentally conscious business operations.
ISO 18001 provides a standard for the effective management of health and safety systems. This standard minimizes risks to employees, improves upon existing systems, and demonstrates conformance to Occupational Health and Safety policies with the organization.
Each certification type is valid for three years, and the facility is evaluated on an annual basis.
