T R Freeman are delighted to have successfully completed their transition to the new ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards - further reinforcing their position as a market-leading roofing, cladding and architectural façade company

ISO 9001 is the standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system, helping businesses be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction – something that is at the heart of T R Freeman's ethos.  The new standard, which replaces the ISO 9001:2008 standard was updated to account for changes in the way organisations do business: the increasing complexity of the supply chains and the increased expectations from customers.

ISO 14001 sets the standards for an organisations environmental management system, which helps to monitor and manage resources and environmental impact. ISO 14001:2015 replaces the previous ISO 14001:2004 standard and has been updated to respond to the latest trends in environmental management. The updated standard has additional requirements, which include identifying and understanding the context of the organisation; leadership; strategic environmental management; risk associated with threats and opportunities; life-cycle thinking; value chain controls; performance evaluation.

Emma Currie, Compliance Manager, Kershaw Group Ltd said “Transitioning to the new ISO standards was extremely important for us, they are recognised globally and are an indication of our dedication to providing a high-quality service to our clients and associates” she continued “ISO 9001:2015 demonstrates our commitment to our quality management system, whilst ISO: 14001:2015 reflects the importance Kershaw Group and its companies place on our environmental responsibilities”

T R Freeman has achieved the transition for both the standards ahead of schedule, which demonstrates the commitment to maintaining and continually improving the quality and environmental management system ensuring both industry requirements and customer needs are met.
