Quality Accreditations

We are proudly ISO 9001 accredited, with a focus towards British Standard 8887-211 and 8887-220 which are specifically centred around remanufacturing of IT (being adopted by ISO8887).

ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS), demonstrating the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS), providing a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.
