GENMA – management systems and certifications
As a forward-looking enterprise, we have committed ourselves to sustainability in all areas – humans, the environment, and the quality of our products. To ensure a constantly sustainable development, we utilize different management systems and fulfil all of the relevant environmental policies:
ISO 9001 – quality management system
Since 1994, GENMA has been certified under ISO 9001. According to this, we have committed ourselves to continuously improve our quality management system. Our GENMA production system provides the best requirements for this. Our strict GENMA standards help to improve processes and to design workflows more efficiently.
ISO 14001 – environmental management system
GENMA has been certified under ISO 14001 since 2003. This international standard defines the requirements made on environmental management systems. This standard also focuses on continuous improvement processes. In the context of the ISO 14001, we consider eco-balances, for example, with environmental benchmarks, and environmental performance ratings.
Planned in 2019:
ISO/TS16949 – quality management in the automotive industry
To meet the customer requirements in the automotive industry, GENMA is currently urgently working on a certification under ISO/TS 16949, which is the global quality standard in the automotive industry. This standard intends to improve system and process quality and customer satisfaction. Its focus is on the identification of faults and not only on their prevention
Planned in 2019:
OHSAS 18001 – occupational health and safety assessment series
To protect the health of GENMA’s employees, we have employed quality management systems that assure the safety of our production employees. In this regard, we are planning a certification under OHSAS 18001 in the near future. This British standard is the basis for a certification of management systems in the area of occupational health and safety and deals with the related hazards and risks in corporate environments.
Dodd-Frank Act – conflict minerals
Since July 2010, companies that are obliged to report by the Securities and Exchange Commission must disclose annually whether the so-called “conflict minerals” (the raw materials tantalum, tin, gold, and tungsten) that are required for the production or functioning of their products originate from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or its neighbouring states.
