The story of the BARTEC company began in 1975 with an innovation: the company founder, Mr Reinhold A.

Today the BARTEC Group is the leading global provider of high-quality industrial safety technology for applications in explosion-hazardous areas.

Statement issued by the executive board
Striving for highest quality and functional safety, guaranteeing optimal health and safety at work and taking into account environmental as well as health and safety regulations in the operational sequences are international standard. Almost all processes within an enterprise have to be aligned with these objectives. More and more frequently the awarding of contracts is made dependent on the requirement that manufacturers provide evidence for a systematic quality management and, moreover, for a work, health and environment protection management for their processes and services, from design to regular efficiency tests.

The concept of “BARTEC – Quality and Culture“ describes this integrated management as a natural part of entrepreneurial activities. Not only the ideas and activities of individuals are important. All BARTEC employees are individually required to contribute actively to the continuous improvement of BARTEC.

The integrated management manual IMH describes the individual elements for BARTEC GmbH on the basis of the following standards:

  • DIN EN ISO 9001 quality management systems
  • DIN EN ISO 14001 environment management systems
  • OHSAS 18001 health and safety management systems

by taking into consideration the requirements of

  • RL 94/9/EG ATEX directive of European Union
  • IEC Ex Schema quality systems requirements for Ex manufacturers
  • EN 9100 aeronautical quality management systems
  • KTA 1401 requirements on quality assurance in nuclear technology
  • EN 61508 functional safety

The integrated management manual presents organisational workflows and responsibilities, including the references to the appropriate internal guidelines for all activities and processes relevant to quality, environment and safety.

With the signature under this statement, this manual shall be applicable and binding for the company site Bad Mergentheim.

By means of the quality, safety and environment management system described in this manual, the executive board expresses its executive duty of ensuring an adequate and constantly high level of quality, safety and environment protection for the products, processes, systems and services.
