ISO certifications for Namport

11 June 2021 | Infrastructure

Namport was recommended for continuation of its current certifications after a recent ISO Surveillance Audit.

ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) is an independent, non-governmental, international organisation that develops standards to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services, and systems.

ISO standards are also in place to ensure consistency.

Namport said that the certifications help the Port Authority demonstrate continual improvement on service delivery to its clients as well as continued commitment to safety and environmental stewardship.

The port authority adheres to the following certifications;

• ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management) with a 2nd surveillance and recertification due in September 2021. ISO 9001. This certification is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. It also places more emphasis on leadership and management commitment. It requires greater involvement by top managers and business leaders in controlling the quality management system.

• ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management) with a 2nd surveillance and recertification due in September 2021. This certification is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.

• ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health & Safety) with 1st Surveillance and 2nd surveillance due in September 2021. This certification was developed to mitigate any factors that can cause employees and businesses irreparable harm. It concentrates on the interaction between an organization and its business environment while OHSAS 18001 was focused on managing OH&S hazards and other internal issues.

ISO 45001 is process-based and OHSAS 18001 is procedure-based.

The next cycle for recertification is scheduled for 16 to 20 August 2021.
