ISO 9001:2008 multi-site Group certifications
The Cotecna Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Group certification scheme began almost 10 years ago. All significant offices within the Group have been certified, most recently to the updated ISO 9001:2008 standard.
In 2009, Cotecna started implementing a Group certification for its trade inspection offices. Offices are certified ISO 9001:2008 and the scope includes the GAFTA - Grain and Feed Trade Association rules Nº143 (sampling) and Nº144 (weighing).
ISO 9001 QMS audits always include in their scope the IFIA Code of Practice (International Federation of Inspection Agencies).
Our ISO 9001:2008 Group certificates were once again renewed in September 2011 and covers over 35 offices.
