Countryside recognises that robust management systems are essential to ensure compliance with legislation and other requirements, ensure conformity across the Group and achieve continual improvement.
The Company has in place three Management Systems to achieve this:
Environmental Management certified to ISO14001:2015
Health and Safety Management certified to OHSAS18001
Quality Management certified to ISO9001:2015
All three standards are certified by UKAS accredited certification bodies.
The Company is one of the first developers to achieve the updated ISO9001 and ISO14001 standards. This was achieved in November 2016.
We are awaiting the issue of the new ISO45001 Health and Safety Standard and aim to achieve this and integrate our management systems further.
The Company is audited by Certification bodies each year and these audits are supported by an internal audit programme covering all three standards at Corporate and site level.
