Wiser clients start ISO14001 and 9001 transition

Wiser Environment has started the process of transitioning clients to the new ISO standards announced last year.

In September 2015, the International Standards Organisation (ISO) published new revisions for the Environmental Management System (ISO14001) and Quality Management System (ISO9001) standards. All organisations accredited to these standards have a three year transitional period from the date of publication to migrate their management systems to the new edition of the standard.

Wiser Environment has successfully assisted one of their clients through the first stage of the transition by completing a readiness review audit to check their fulfilment of the new standards. The response from the audit was very positive with the auditor concluding that the company does fulfil the criteria of the new standards and the management system continues to achieve its intended outcomes.

If you’re having difficulty with the transition to ISO14001:2015 and ISO9001:2015, Wiser Environment will be able to help you. Contact us on 01480462232.

Wiser finalist in Innovation Award for Excellence

Our sister company, Wiser Recycling, was a runner-up in the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Innovation Award at the MRW Awards for Excellence last night.

MRW National Recycling Awards finalist logo 2016This prestigious industry award recognises those in the recycling industry that have taken a creative and innovative approach to reducing the impact of WEEE.

Wiser Recycling was recognised for our strong performance in a difficult market and particularly for our investment in a Smash Boom Bang. The first of its kind in the UK, the German technology broadens our in-house capabilities to process small mixed WEEE. This innovative choice of equipment not only gives us processing capability for this growing waste stream but reduces our transport emissions and costs and improves the quality of the end product materials.

Russell HIrst, Managing Director, says: “We are very pleased to have been a finalist for this award. The WEEE industry is a tough environment in which to operate so it’s great to have our innovation and success recognised.”

The award ceremony took place at the London Hilton on 6th July.
