2014-05-05 | Quality & reliability as well as inherent sustainability – at FN Neuhofer Holz
ISO 9001: 2008 Quality Management System - successfully re-certified
At the beginning of 2014, Neuhofer Holz had reason to celebrate passing the audit of its Quality Management System once more.
The certificate confirms that the Quality Management System, with all its processes and therefore in all fields, is compliant with ISO 9001:2008 and is applied.
ISO 14001: 2009 Environmental Management System - successfully affirmed
A surveillance audit compliant with ISO 14001:2009 Environmental Management System requirements took place in parallel with this. Surveillance results likewise confirmed that Neuhofer Holz is applying a highly sustainable system through its environment-related programmes, objectives, activities and processes.
FSC certificate and PEFC certificate - validity reaffirmed
The FSC ( Forest Stewardship Council) is an overarching international organisation for the promotion of sustained, socially compatible and economically viable forestry. It prescribes principles and criteria for sustainable forestry and timber industries. Certified operations such as Neuhofer Holz are certified compliant with FSC mandated ecological, social and economical criteria along the entire chain, from tree felling to the manufacture of finished products as required by customers. Neuhofer Holz is inherently conscious of sustainability.
By marking Neuhofer products with the PEFC quality seal (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes), the consumer is offered the opportunity of consciously opting for buying products originating from responsible forestry. The quality seal guarantees that the forests from which the certified wood originates are, on the one hand, managed ecologically, economically and socially sustainable as laid down by the PEFC standards. It also, on the other hand, clearly certifies compliance of transport and processing routes across all value-adding stages down to the end user. The active contribution of Neuhofer Holz to the ecological quality of its products and thereby to nature conservation is as such also confirmed.
