The Argyle Quality Management System has been established as the basic approach for gaining customer satisfaction and confidence. By implementing a quality system, Argyle is ensuring that customers’ satisfaction and quality of products are always considered first.

So what is ISO9001?

Today’s version of ISO 9001 provides Argyle with a comprehensive process-focused framework upon which we can build business processes that lead to the successful achievement of organisational objectives.

Organisations that implement ISO Standards create effective business management systems that deliver confidence among their stakeholders in the capability of their processes and the reliability of their products and or services; while at the same time, benefiting from improved risk management.  In addition, an effective business management system serves to create the basis for continual improvement leading to increased customer satisfaction and ultimately to the success of the organisation.

ISO 9001 specifies the requirements for a Quality Management System where the capability to provide a product and or service that meets customer and regulatory mandates needs to be demonstrated.

So what is ISO14001?

ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) through dedicated technical committees representing approximately 150 countries around the world. Its purpose is to enable an organisation of any type or size to develop and implement a policy committing it to prevention of pollution, compliance with legal and other requirements, and continual improvement.

The realisation of this commitment will be a management system that recognizes and manages the primary environmental issues through awareness and assessment of applicable legal requirements, objectives for improvement, assignment of responsibilities, competent personnel, communications, procedures, controls and monitoring, emergency response capability, self correction and assessment, and internal reviews. These processes are to be based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
