Poly-clip System puts its trust in quality and hygiene standards. To offer its customers the highest possible quality, particularly from the standpoint of food safety, Poly-clip System has chosen certification of its integrated management system in accordance with ISO 9001:2008 and 22000:2005. DIN EN ISO 22000 ensures regular and independent monitoring of all clip and loop manufacturing processes and thus guarantees maximum safety for the food manufacturers’ customers. This reliability is a top priority for Poly-clip System.
ISO 22000:2005 is an internationally recognised food safety standard. Since its introduction in 2005, DIN EN ISO 22000 certification has unified and harmonised a large number of national standards to form a single, comprehensive, readily understood standard that is recognised around the world. It ensures that all quality assurance processes conform to international requirements. In terms of its structure and content, ISO 22000:2005 is based on ISO 9001:2008, together with the principles of good manufacturing practice. Instead of simply testing the end product, ISO 22000:2005 intervenes in the preliminary processes. This makes it possible to identify potential risks in good time and to take preventive measures to avoid or eliminate them. At Poly-clip System the risks of product contamination are continuously assessed and evaluated on the basis of an FMEA.
Aims of the ISO 22000 Standard:
- Increased food safety at all stages of the production and supply chain. That is, an increase in product safety and an associated fall in the product warranty risks
- Creation of a uniform, globally recognised testing framework for food management systems to strengthen customer- and consumer confidence
Important contribution to environmental and climate protection
The objective of DIN EN ISO 50001 is to improve companies’ energy efficiency. To achieve this, systems and processes are introduced which are intended to exploit unused energy efficiency potentials. But apart from increasing efficiency through lower energy costs, the aim is to reduce energy consumption overall and so reduce the environmental impact. Hence it is also an environmental and climate protection measure.
