ISO Annual Surveillance audit passed

Two years ago, in May 2021, CDS achieved the ISO certification for 9001 Quality Management Systems and 45001 Occupational Health and Safety management systems. Today, we are proud to share that we have once again passed the annual ISO surveillance audit.

Victoria’s Container Deposit Scheme starts on November 1st and CDS aims to streamline and optimize the recycling experience, making it more convenient and efficient for both consumers and recycling depots.

What does it mean to be ISO certified?

ISO 9001:2015 helps businesses and organizations to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. At the same time, ISO 45001:2018 enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health and proactively improving their OH&S performance.

The benefits of partnering with an ISO-certified organization

1. Quality Assurance: the company has implemented a quality management system (QMS) based on international standards. This ensures that CDS follows robust processes and procedures to maintain consistent quality in its products and services. By choosing an ISO-certified supplier, you can have confidence in the quality of the supplies you receive.

2. Consistency and Reliability: ISO certification requires suppliers to establish processes that ensure consistency in their operations. This means that you can expect reliable and predictable performance from an ISO-certified supplier.

3. Continuous Improvement: ISO-certified companies are required to monitor their processes, identify areas for enhancement, and take corrective actions when necessary. This focus on continuous improvement can lead to better products, services, and overall customer satisfaction.

4. Enhanced Supplier Selection: ISO certification serves as an indicator of a supplier’s professionalism and commitment to quality. When evaluating potential suppliers, having ISO certification can be a valuable criterion for shortlisting candidates. It demonstrates that the supplier has undergone an external audit and met the rigorous standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

5. Reduced Risks: ISO-certified suppliers are likely to have well-defined processes for risk management. They prioritize identifying and mitigating potential risks associated with their products or services. By choosing an ISO-certified supplier, you can minimize the risk of receiving substandard or defective supplies that could impact your operations or customers.

6. Regulatory Compliance: ISO certification often involves adherence to regulatory requirements specific to the industry. By working with an ISO-certified supplier, you can have confidence that they comply with applicable regulations and standards.
