- Certification to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 awarded
- Management systems of three companies standardised
As part of BSI's external audit, the quality management systems of trans-o-flex Express, trans-o-flex Logistik-Service and trans-o-flex ThermoMed (specialist for actively temperature-controlled shipments at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius) were merged. Until now, there had been two separate QM systems, one for ThermoMed on the one hand and another for Express as well as Logistik-Service on the other hand. "As a result, the annual external audit now takes place for all companies at the same time and we only have to maintain one system manual in which all relevant processes of the various trans-o-flex companies are defined", explains Albeck. Another advantage is that the contact persons from the quality management departments of Express, Logistik and ThermoMed can work on processes across companies.
The background to the transition audit was that in 2015 the ISO standards 9001 and 14001 were completely revised. Recertification under the old standard would no longer have been possible, as the maximum transitional period to the revised standard is three years.
