Management System Certification

QEC is an accredited agent for the Warranty Standards Certification Programme. We can assess and certify your management systems to the following standards:

Eco Warranty

Eco Warranty is an Environmental management system standard that has been designed with businesses like yours in mind. It is an internationally recognised user friendly environmental management standard that when used correctly will maximise your environmental performance.

The critical elements in Eco Warranty are:
  • Commitment to Care of the Environment
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Environmental Review
  • Training, Awareness and Competence
  • Environmental Hazard Assessment
  • Document Control & Control of Records
  • Environmental Planning
  • System Verification
  • Environmental Control & Monitoring

Eco Warranty has many advantages over other environmental management standards.
  • The logo can be used on your products.
  • The registration fees are cost effective.
  • The standard is user friendly.
  • The standard outlines what the auditor will expect to see during the on-site assessment.
Implementation of an Eco Warranty compliant system can reduce waste, cost, and inefficiency. It not only aids the preservation of our natural resources, it can reduce the cost of finding more or new resources. Ensuring that the right controls are in place can reduce the impacts on the environment from emissions, spills, leaks, and other environmental accidents and incidents. By managing the risks of negative environmental impacts, future compliance costs, site clean-up costs, insurance costs, lawsuit costs, and fines can be minimised or even negated.

Additional benefits can include improvements to employee safety and morale, the use of alternative and/or less hazardous materials, and reduced need for special equipment, training, and storage areas.

Managing environmental operations and practices can also result in a dramatic reduction in the cost of waste disposal. Protecting the environment by Eco Warranty compliance can also reduce the incidence of visits by regulatory auditors and other similar local government inspectors, thereby causing less disruption to the business activities.

On Time Warranty

On-Time Warranty is an On-Time Delivery Standard that organisations around the globe are choosing to demonstrate their commitment to On-Time Delivery. All types of organisations can achieve certification to this standard from packing sheds, transport companies, fruit and produce agents, manufacturing companies, civil engineering, construction, through to professional service providers and wholesalers.

If you have any enquiries regarding certification please don't hesitate to contact us.

Quality Warranty

Quality Warranty is a Quality Management Standard (QMS) that organisations around the globe are choosing to demonstrate their commitment to Quality Assurance. All types of organisations can achieve certification to this standard from primary producers, packing sheds, transport companies, fruit and produce agents, manufacturing companies, civil engineering, construction, through to professional service providers and retailers.

Internal Operational Activities
These are the most important benefits of quality management as they represent the potential for increased profitability. The main benefits are:

  • Reduction in unproductive time due to correct information, equipment, tools, documentation, materials or skilled labour.
  • Reduced rectification and rework if a job or contract is not fulfilled correctly or on time.
  • Improved control of service or manufacturing operations.
  • Increase in satisfaction levels of staff due to the implementation of standard procedures.
  • Employee involvement.
  • Systems to identify opportunities for improvement.
  • Better business control.

Marketing
The visibility of a certification logo is a statement to all that the organisation has achieved a successful assessment by an independent third party body. Benefits of this are:

  • The external certification can act as a door opener for new business as many organisations will only purchase from certified companies.
  • The logos will increase the stature of the company in the market place.
  • The logos will demonstrate the company's commitment to Quality Management.

In short the benefits of Quality Management will result in better profitability, fewer problems and a better quality image to customers.

Risk Warranty

Risk Warranty is a generic risk management standard that can be adopted by any organisation to identify, control and manage its risks. It is a value adding alternative to other standards.

Safe Food Warranty

Safe Food Warranty is a HACCP based Food Safety Management Standard (FSP) that organisations around the globe are choosing to demonstrate their commitment to Food Safety. All types of organisations can achieve certification to this standard from primary producers, packing sheds, transport companies, fruit and produce agents, food manufacturing companies, through to retailers. If you have any enquiries regarding certification please don't hesitate to contact us.

Safe Food Warranty is a very user friendly alternative to ISO 22000:2005.

Work Safe Warranty

A well designed, implemented and integrated Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) improves the ability of management to identify and understand business hazards, potential effects, and provide leadership to demonstrate the health and safety responsibility of the company to its employees, customers, and stakeholders.

By aligning company health and safety controls to an internationally accepted standard (i.e. Work Safe Warranty), common systems, terminology, and practices for all departments and locations ensure a commonality of purpose and direction, whether the organisations are single site, multi-site, or multi-national.

One of the keys to Work Safe Warranty compliance is consistency in health and safety performance, providing reassurance that the system is designed to limit the severity of incidents and their consequential costs.

Work Safe Warranty compliance aids in improved communications resulting in greater efficiency in decision making by ensuring the dissemination of relevant data to interested parties.

Marketing
Work Safe Warranty certification through Warranty Standards Ltd demonstrates that the organisation has met a recognised health and safety management standard. Following certification the certification logo can be used on products, packaging etc to demonstrate your organisation's commitment to care of employees.
