Tabreed wins renewal of ISO certifications
Abu Dhabi, June 24, 2012
National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed), the Abu Dhabi-based district cooling utility company, has achieved the renewal of three ISO certifications for its management policies and procedures.
The certifications relate to Tabreed’s environmental practices, services quality and employee health and safety.
The three certifications, which are reviewed by external audits every three years include ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management System), which demonstrates the company’s ability to consistently provide a quality of service that meets its customers’ requirements; ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management System), which assesses the company’s environmental practices; and OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System), which measures the company’s compliance with various health and safety regulations and promotion of employee health and well being.
Tabreed received its re-certifications after an extensive assessment carried out by Intertek International, a leading global ISO accreditation company.
The certification process included a comprehensive audit of Tabreed’s district cooling plants’ operations rooms, corporate headquarters as well as its management policies and procedures. The audit also entails an annual review to ensure the company continuously abides by international best practices going forward.
Sujit Parhar, Tabreed’s CEO, said: “This is a great achievement for Tabreed and is a direct result of the high standards of the systems we have embedded in the company as well as the hard work and professionalism of our employees.”
“The re-certification recognizes the importance Tabreed attributes to responsible and effective management systems, and the benefits they in turn create for our customers, society and employees. For over a decade, we have maintained our commitment to international best practices, and as the partner of choice for the UAE’s leading private and government institutions, it is vital that we ensure that these high standards are implemented across our organisation.”
Andrew Cunningam, general manager, Intertek International, added: “Tabreed has continued to demonstrate its adherence to international best practices and I’m pleased to announce that, after a thorough assessment of the company’s various management systems, we have renewed Tabreed’s ISO certificates for another three years.”
“It is crucial that in an increasingly global economy, companies continue to adopt international best practices in order to deliver the highest standards of services to their various stakeholders.”
Tabreed attained its first ISO certification in 2002, and has successfully achieved re-certification thereafter in 2005 and 2008, as per the ISO certification cycle. – TradeArabia News Service
