The topic of quality represents the focus of all services which we offer to you. This is a self-obligation which we regularly also fulfil in accordance with the stringent specifications laid down in international DIN standards.
In 1996, the new regulations on waste disposal companies (EfbV) demanded a certification from RIGK – which, however, simply couldn’t be fulfilled. This was because none of the certifiable waste management activities concerning the collection, transportation, storage, treatment, recycling or disposal of waste were conducted independently.
The solution: in order to create our own standard, we developed our Environmental Management System (EM System) in addition to our already-existing, detailed quality-orientated system. The latter defined the process flows and regulations on monitoring and measurement during the procurement and regular inspection of the collection points, recycling companies and carriers.
Both systems continously pass the regular recertification in accordance with the Quality Management DIN EN ISO 9001 and the Environmental Management DIN EN ISO 14001. This combined certificate places stringent requirements on the operation of collection systems for the return and recycling of industrial and commercial plastic packaging and plastics as well as plant protection and seed dressing packaging from the agrochemicals sector.
Our quality claims also comprise of us never ceasing to continuously improve our environmental and process performance – to which we have also obligated ourselves with the international DIN standard. We place these requirements equally comprehensively on all service provider companies who work for us: we not only agree on prices, but also on the quality of the services, their on-time implementation and the relevant requirements on the environmentally-friendly execution of the activities.
The next certification audit is to take place in November 2019 at RIGK. In addition, we voluntarily have ourselves inspected in interim audits for the consistent improvement of our environmental and process performance.
