Customer information on quality, health & safety & environment
ISO9001:2000 Quality management system
Polybags achieved certification to the ISO9001:2008 standard in 2013 after previously being certified to the old ISO9001:2000 standard since 2004 and the ISO9002:1994 standard (formerly BS5750) since 1995.
Using this standard we operate under a quality system where we look for continuous improvement, track Key Performance Indicators and keep all activities Customer focused.
We are audited on a regular basis by the British Standards Institute
Our certification reference is FM31516
Prior to formal British standards such as BS5750 above, the Ministry of Defence was the instigator of quality standards in a number of industries
For polythene, the relevant MOD standard was 93-13 and Polybags was approved by the MOD under its contractor list number 19SP02
Polybags still conforms to the standards required under the latest MOD revision of this standard 93-116 issued in March 2000
Polybags was awarded the Royal Warrant in 1989 and has maintained the status ever since
Whilst not a formal quality standard, we are proud of the award which is symptomatic of our desire to be the best supplier throughout the UK
