BOSCH SECURITY SYSTEMS EARNS ISO 14001:2004 CERTIFICATION
Fairport, New York - - Bosch Security Systems, a full -line manufacturer of high -quality security systems and components, has announced that its Fairport location has achieved ISO 14001:2004 certification from BSI, Inc., an environmental management systems registrar.
The ISO 14001:2004 standard is an internationally recognized environmental management system standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). To be certified to the standard, companies must implement an environmental management system (EMS) that covers activities from staff training to product design and development to purchasing and delivery of products and services. Certification to ISO 14001:2004 reinforces to customers through an independent third -party that Bosch operates an EMS in accordance with the standard.
Bosch has implemented many new processes based on its environmental policy and EMS. Bosch began its registration process in June 2004: BSI performed on -site assessments, examined documented procedures, and audited Bosch's overall operations. To determine continued compliance with ISO 14001:2004, BSI will periodically conduct routine surveillance audits of Bosch business operations.
Both of Bosch Security Systems' U.S. locations, Fairport, NY and Lancaster, PA, now have ISO 14001:2004 certification.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the source of the ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 families of quality and environmental management standards and some 15,000 International Standards for business, government and society. ISO is a network of national standards institutes from 146 countries working in partnership with international organizations, governments, industries, and business and consumer representatives.
