17.07.2017 Bunting gains enhanced quality and environmental accreditation

Bunting Magnetics Europe, Berkhamsted, UK, has successfully transitioned to the new ISO 9001:2015 quality and ISO 14001:2015 environment standards.  The certification covers the manufacture and supply of magnetic separators, metal detectors, and magnets as well as magnetic assemblies from its European manufacturing headquarters. Denis Elkins, the company’s quality assurance manager, explained the importance of gaining ISO9001:2015 quality approval: "Bunting has held the ISO9001 quality standard since May 2005.  The quality of our products, manufacturing processes, and business management is of utmost importance to us and our customers, and, we believe, is one of the primary reasons for our continued success."
This latest ISO quality standard was revised in 2015 and now has a definitive focus on business performance.  The process approach has been combined with risk-based thinking, promoting the plan-do-check-act cycle at all levels in the organisation.  The new standard acknowledges that modern organisations will have several management standards in place, and the 2015 version has been designed to be easily integrated with other management systems.  
Bunting also recognises the importance of adopting good working practices in accordance with international environmental standards and originally attained ISO 14001 approval in February 2002.  The updated 2015 version sets out the criteria for a certifiable environmental management system.  It maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow to set up an effective environmental management system, regardless of its activity or sector.
