3 2 Environmental Management Systems Certification Obtaining certification to ISO has certainly made a difference to our bottom link by forcing us to look critically at our waste management systems. Some of our waste streams are now actually making money VCA Customer Formal Certification Burden or Benefit? Providing a quality product in a sustainable way and caring for your workforce are rightly viewed as important features of responsible management. Introducing management systems based on recognised standards can play a critical role in this process. Having taken that step, achieving formal certification will send a clear message about your commitment and should give you access to a wealth of industry best practice information from your certification body. It will come as no surprise that the most successful companies view their management systems as a vital business tool and far from being a burden they have the potential to make a significant difference to the bottom line. Some of the key benefits are: Operational efficiencies and cost savings Supports stronger legislative compliance, significantly reducing the potential for failure Opens the door to new business as certification is often a condition of supply Sends a clear message about your to quality, sustainability and the welfare of your workforce Improved performance, providing a framework for continuous improvement, increasing staff morale VCA -Delivering a Safer Environment

5 4 Environmental Management Systems Certification ISO/TS (Automotive Quality) ISO/TS was developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), in cooperation with the International Standards Organisation (ISO). The aim of this standard is to provide harmonised quality systems within the automotive supply chain, resulting in a focussed and consistent approach. The standard is based on the structure of ISO 9001 and the specific requirements of the automotive quality standard. ISO/TS 16949:2009 aligns with ISO 9001:2008. Key points include: To find our more about our specific offering see the section entitled Why VCA? Improved product and process quality Additional confidence in global sourcing Reassignment of supplier resources to quality improvement Common quality system approach in the supply chain for supplier/sub-contractor development and consistency Reduction in multiple 3 rd party registrations Potential benefits of formal certification include: Operational efficiencies and cost savings Opens the door to new business as certification is often a condition of supply Sends a clear message about your commitment Increases customer confidence Provides a framework for continuous improvement, increasing staff morale As automotive specialists, VCA was the first UK certification body to be recognised by the IATF to this standard.

7 6 Environmental Management Systems Certification My first experience of a VCA audit, which I found professionally delivered and productive VCA Customer ISO 9001 For many years now the ISO family of standards have existed as an effective framework around which to base quality management systems. By far the most commonly used standard is ISO 9001 as it can really be applied in any sector. The latest iteration of the standard contains 5 main clauses, including: Quality Management System Management responsibilities Resource management Product realisation Measurement analysis and improvement An increasing number of companies are seeking to back-up their processes with formal ISO certification and the following potential benefits explain why: Operational efficiencies and cost savings Increases customer confidence Opens the door to new business as certification is often a condition of supply Focussed sector scheme, allowing for a common approach Provides a framework for continuous improvement, increasing staff morale VCA is an accredited certification body and can offer you the following: Certification and training delivered by professional auditors with real experience of your sector and the issues you face Gap analysis to help you identify the areas of your quality system that might need more work before certification To find our more about our specific offering see the section entitled Why VCA?

9 8 Environmental Management Systems Certification LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a process that evaluates the environmental burdens associated with a product, process or activity. This is done by identifying energy and materials used as well as wastes and emissions released into the environment. LCA verification means that a product or service has been produced following the ISO 14040, ISO and ISO norms. Put simply, ISO covers the integration of environmental aspects into the design and development of a product, as well as how recyclable it is. The other two standards, ISO and ISO provide principles and guidance for life cycle assessments. VCA can offer the following services in this area: Assessment and training delivered by professional auditors with real experience of your sector and the issues you face. Assessment can be carried out in conjunction with certification to ISO if required Gap analysis to help you identify the areas that might need more work before certification To find our more about our specific offering see the section entitled Why VCA? VCA has conducted assessments for companies in the automotive sector, bringing to bear nearly 40 years experience in this area. VCA -Delivering a Safer Environment

11 10 Environmental Management Systems Certification ISO ISO is the current environmental management system (EMS) standard, providing a model for you to follow when creating and applying your environmental policy. Focusing on the issues that really matter, ISO is designed to help you achieve consistent regulatory compliance, whilst embedding the concept of continuous improvement at the heart of everything. Key requirements of the standard include: Creation of an environmental policy Appreciation of your environmental issues and their potential impact Formalisation of control systems and monitoring processes Communication of your policy and approach to staff and stakeholders The setting of targets and objectives Compliance with relevant legislation VCA is an accredited certification body and can offer you the following: Certification and training delivered by professional auditors with real experience of your sector and the issues you face Gap analysis to help you identify the areas of your EMS that might need more work before certification To find our more about our specific offering see the section entitled Why VCA? An increasing number of companies are seeking to back-up their processes with formal ISO certification and the following potential benefits explain why: Operational efficiencies and cost savings Supports legislative compliance, significantly reducing the potential for failure Opens the door to new business as certification is often a condition of supply Sends a clear message about your commitment to the sustainability agenda Provides a framework for continuous improvement, increasing staff morale My first experience of a VCA audit, which I found professionally delivered and productive VCA Customer VCA -Delivering a Safer Environment

13 12 Environmental Management Systems Certification The inspection process was professional and done in a friendly manner whilst highlighting the key areas for improvement to attain ISO The auditor is a credit to your organisation ACORN (A PHASED APPROACH) VCA Customer You may have a desire to improve your environmental performance, demonstrating your commitment to customers, staff and the wider community but your organisation may not be ready to move to formal ISO certification in the shortterm. There can be a number of potential reasons for this with pressure on resources being just one. However, this needn t stop you moving forward using staged implementation schemes like the IEMA backed Acorn certification. The Acorn scheme is broken down into 6 manageable phases (defined in BS 8555) and provides a road map to ultimate implementation of an EMS to either ISO or EMAS. Achievement criteria exist for each of the 6 phases, with certified recognition of success along the way. Some of the benefits are: You can move towards ISO or EMAS certification at your own pace, which is ideal for companies with limited resources Formal certification is available on completion of each phase, which sends a clear message on commitment A listing on the IEMA Acorn Register, which is a valuable data source for potential customers looking for suppliers Potential operation efficiencies and exposure to new business, where certification is often a condition of supply You don t need to complete all of the stages as each is registered in its own right Accredited, Independent Inspection A system of independent verification is at the core of the scheme. Inspection bodies are approved by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and VCA is one such body. When choosing an inspection body you should look for one that can add value to the process. VCA is part of government and has extensive experience in the certification arena with client base ranging from multi-nationals to SMEs. VCA -Delivering a Safer Environment

15 14 Environmental Management Systems Certification ECO-MANAGEMENT & AUDIT SCHEME (EMAS) Based on ISO 14001, EMAS is a voluntary EC Regulation aimed at supporting the management of environmental impacts. The key difference from the ISO standard is that EMAS incorporates the requirement to publicly report on performance in this area. As you might expect, the potential benefits are similar to those outlined for ISO with one key addition, so: Operational efficiencies and cost savings Supports legislative compliance, significantly reducing the potential for failure Opens the door to new business as certification is often a condition of supply Sends a clear message about your commitment to the sustainability agenda Provides a framework for continuous improvement, increasing staff morale Public reporting provides complete transparency in terms of performance VCA is qualified as a corporate environmental verifier and can offer the following services in this area: Assessment and training delivered by professional auditors with real experience of your sector and the issues you face. Assessment can be carried out in conjunction with certification to ISO if required Gap analysis to help you identify the areas of your EMS that might need more work before certification To find our more about our specific offering see the section entitled Why VCA?

17 16 Environmental Management Systems Certification ISO ISO 50001:2011 relates to energy management and is a voluntary, internationally recognised standard, which outlines the requirements for an energy management system (EnMS). The structure of this standard is similar to ISO and ISO 9001, which should support implementation, as well as its integration into existing management systems. ISO will be relevant to organisations of all shapes and sizes but will be of particular interest to those operating in energy intensive environments. Key elements of the standard include: Continual improvement of energy performance Creation of an energy policy Prioritisation of issues affecting energy use and efficiency Supporting the reduction of costs and Green House Gas (GHG) emissions by setting objectives and targets for the identification of saving opportunities Formalising control systems and monitoring processes, Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) approach Evaluation of compliance with legal and other requirements Systematic review of the EnMS by top management Assists organisations in making better use of existing energy consuming assets Energy management is rightly high on the business agenda and benefits that can arise from effective management make it easy to see why, they include: Provides a better understanding of energy use More conscious energy design and procurement practices Straightforward integration with other management systems, i.e. ISO 9001 & as it has common elements across the management system standards Maximises use of energy sources and energy related assets could reduce energy cost and consumption Reduces GHG emissions and other environmental impacts Supports the growing demand within industry to gain international recognition To find out more about our specific offering see the section entitled Why VCA? During audits staff are always professional and demonstrate a high level of industry knowledge VCA Customer Operational efficiencies and cost savings Promotes a focus on energy as a valuable and costly resource Improves and drives energy performance and efficiency improves the way energy is managed Demonstrates energy management best practises to stakeholders and others VCA -Delivering a Safer Environment

19 18 Environmental Management Systems Certification OHSAS (Health & Safety) VCA bring the experience and practical approach required to audit and add value to our Health and Safety management system in what is a changing industry like waste management VCA Customer Historically, managing risk in business has tended to focus on the quality of the product supplied to the customer. In recent years the more successful companies have seen this as only part of the story. Taking a holistic approach, considering quality, as well as environmental and health and safety issues can have a positive impact on your business. Utilising the same approach as the environmental standard, ISO 14001, the aim of the OHSAS specification is to provide a framework for a safe and healthy working environment. The specification also provides guidelines on how to integrate health and safety policies into your overall management system. Key requirements of the standard include: Creation of the health and safety policy Appreciation of your health and safety issues and their potential impacts Formulation of control systems and monitoring processes Communication of your policy and approach to staff and stakeholders Establishing objectives and targets Compliance with relevant legislation An increasing number of companies are seeking to back-up their processes with formal certification and the following potential benefits explain why: Demonstrates a clear commitment to providing a safe working environment Delivers cost savings by minimising risks to your workforce Improves operational efficiency Reduces the potential impact of failing to meet legislative requirements VCA is an accredited certification body and can offer you the following: Certification and training delivered by professional auditors with real experience of your sector and the issues you face Gap analysis to help you identify the areas of your system that might need more work before certification To find our more about our specific offering see the section entitled Why VCA?
