Encore pass with flying colours
We’re pleased to announce that in October, Encore Packaging Solutions and Encore Envelopes underwent re-certification to ISO9001:2008, the globally recognised quality standard, and passed with flying colours!
At Encore, we don’t believe in half jobs and underperforming programmes. We have one standard of work – exemplary, which is why we take our bi-annual audits very seriously. Our team take responsibility for being audit ready, every day, all year round, to enable our clients to receive the best service possible, so we’re proud that the dedication has paid off with the re-certification.
In light of the success, we’ve also decided to pursue certification to the latest ISO9001 standard – ISO9001:2015. At the present, we have provisionally passed, with the audit report currently under technical review. Barring any comments, we should have confirmation in the coming weeks. This is just another step Encore are taking to stay relevant and one step ahead in the industry.
It’s an honour to be recognised by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), an independent, non-governmental international body. The auditory standards specify requirements for a quality management system, where an organisation needs to demonstrate an ability to consistently provide products that meets applicable statutory and regulatory customer requirements. It’s also important to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement and the assurance of conformity to regulatory requirements.
The re-certification to ISO9001:2008 and pending ISO9001:2015 is a great achievement for Encore, and wouldn’t have been possible without all our departments constant hard work and dedication. We’re proud of our team and can’t wait to see the positive effect the result will have for the sustainability and growth of the Company.
