A leading member of OFTEC, the company maintains ISO 9001, 14000 and 18000 as well as many national and international certifications for its products, including European CE Certifications where applicable.

The primary function of all management and employees shall be the maintenance of this objective.

Management is ultimately responsible for making balanced judgements, assessing the significance of variations in this sphere and taking decisions.
