BCR Associates, a leading UK cost and risk management consultancy, and its sister company, BCR Energy & Carbon Services have achieved ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
ISO 9001 is a Quality Management System standard which is globally recognised. It has been awarded to BCR Associates for the company’s adherence to a number of quality management principles throughout all areas of the business, which include levels of customer focus, the involvement of senior management, the processes followed and its commitment to continual improvement.
The ISO 14001 certification provides an approach to implementing an effective Environmental Management System. BCR Associates has been certified to this standard following adoption of specific business procedures to show awareness of the company’s environmental obligations and a commitment to reducing its environmental impact.
These latest certifications demonstrate BCR Associates’ commitment to providing its clients with market-leading service levels, and the company’s ethos of environmental sustainability. Furthermore, BCR Associates’ network of franchisees is now benefiting from operating under a franchisor which has a widely-recognised certified management system.
Richard Dormer, Managing Director of BCR Associates comments, “High standards of service and best practice throughout our business have always been paramount. Achieving ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 is an important milestone for us and we look forward to sharing our experience with our clients to help them achieve these certifications if they choose to do so.”
BCR Associates is now planning to become certified to ISO 50001 standard, which supports organisations to use energy more efficiently through an effective energy management system.
