LafargeHolcim’s Spanish plants obtain quality management accreditation
Published by Jonathan Rowland,
LafargeHolcim Spain has obtained ISO 9001:2015 certification for its quality management systems at its cement plants, becoming the first cement company in Spain to achieve the new standards.
ISO 9001:2015 were published in September 2015, updating the previous ISO 9001:2008 standards for quality management. Following publication, organisation’s are allowed three-years to migrate to the new edition of the standard.
The standards require organisations demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer requirements, as well as statutory and regulatory standards. Designed to be generic, ISO 9001:2015 are intended to apply across sectors, regardless of the type of product or service provided.
The adaption to the new standard was carried out in less than a year across LafargeHolcim’s five cement plants in Spain. The plants are currently also working to update their environmental accreditation to ISO 14001:2015.
The company’s Central Quality Laboratory has also recently revalidated its ISO 17025 accreditation with Spain’s national accreditation agency, Entidad Nacional de Acreditación, which covers competency in laboratory testing.
