OFI awarded the Certificate of Excellence
O.F.I. OFFICINA FARMACEUTICA ITALIANA was today awarded the Certificate of Excellence by Certiquality, the Quality Certification Body accredited by Accredia, in a prize-giving ceremony held during a convention entitled “Protecting the consumer through product certification, from legislative conformity to managerial excellence".
Why a certificate of excellence?
Umberto Chiminazzo, General Manager of Certiquality states, "In Italy there are over 120,000 companies certified in accordance with the ISO 9001 standard, more that 14,000 companies certified for their environmental management systems in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard, and more than 2,300 companies certified for their occupational health and safety management systems in accordance with the BS OHSAS 18001 standard, (equal therefore to 1,9% of companies certified for quality).
Well below this level is the sub-group of companies that have implemented an integrated quality, environment and safety system.
From information on organizations gathered by our independent monitoring centre, it is therefore essential we reward the positive experiences of companies that act responsibly and have received three certifications for compliance with the international ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS 18001 standards, not only by improving the quality of products/services offered, but also by safeguarding the environment and guaranteeing the health and safety of workers."
