Quality Assurance

QUALITY MATTERS


Throughout the 28 year history of the business we have always aimed to provide excellent customer services, quality products and to work in such a way which advocates responsible management of the environment and promotes health and safety in the workplace.

In recognition of this, in February 2016 Advanced Labelling Limited (operator of the LabelZone.co.uk website) successfully gained certification to three ISO standards.  We are proud that our recent audit by URS has seen us maintain our three ISO accreditations.

Advanced Labelling Limited has achieved the following ISO certifications:

• ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management System

• ISO 14001: 2015 Environmental Management System

• OHSAS 18001: 2007 Occupational Health and Safety Management System


Following the implementation of a combined Quality Management System in early 2012, the certification process was undertaken by United Registrar of Systems who are an independent UKAS accredited certification body. URS operate in more than 25 countries within the multi-national ROS Group.

By gaining certification to these ISO standards, new and existing customers can be confident that they will receive a quality and responsive service. Also ensuring that within our processes we have a responsible and forward thinking approach to both the environment and the wellbeing of our team.

Quality Manager Mike Abbott said “We have always driven the business forward off the back of excellent customer service, quality products and have always aimed for continuous improvement. Gaining formal certification in these three standards has helped crystalise the Company ethos both internally for the staff and externally for customers and suppliers.”
