NCI Certification obtains Approved Self Assessment

For a moment the roles where reversed. Normally we conduct the audits, now we were audited. Just as our clients we as a certifying organisation need to comply with the demands of your clients if we want to qualify for a tender. Passing the Approved Self Assessement (ASA) was one of them. We can now proudly say we passed with flying colours.

 

It is our mission to create world in which people work on improving safety, healty, quality, sustainability and the environment. We can achieve this by auditing our customers but also by looking at ourselfs. Are we on the right track or are there still thing to improve? 52 employees filled in the Self Assessment Questionnaire en thereby gave us the answer to those questions.

 

We can now actively and enthusiastically proceed with the plan of action and the GAP analysis we made as a result of the Approved Self Assessment. It might sound like ‘I am Hanneke de Vries and I approve this message’ we we really reccomend the ASA. It is like looking in the mirror. It gives you the opportunity to lift up your safety and health culture.

 

Is your company ready to pick up the mirror or do you have any questions? We are happy to help you. You can find more information on our website or contact us.

SCI Netherlands stops; NCI Certification offers acquisition of the certificates

Because of changes in the branche and cooperation with Socotec Certification UK Ltd SCI Netherlands has decided to cease all their activities from January 1st 2022. NCI Certification and SCI Netherlands have a similar work method. SCI Nethersland therefore thinks NCI Certification is the perfect transparant and practical partner to take over the current certifications.

 

In the period to come NCI Certification will provide the customers of SCI Netherlands with non-binding offers. After agreeing with a new agreement, NCI Certification takes over the certification and they will carry out the already planned audit. The already known and planned auditors of SCI are used as much as possible.

NCI Certification congratulates Voet Verhuur with their ISO 27001 certificate

The rental of aggregates, battery packs and transformer stations doesn’t immediately make you think about ISO 27001 and data security. Because quality and service matter to Voet Energy Solutions, they invested in this certification. John and Rick Voet accepted the certificate proudly.

Their auditor is positive as well: “By giving attention to ISO 27001 Voet Verhuur took some measurements that prepares them for the risk of hostile software. Not much later they even had to deal with such issue.” The implementation of the ISMS is also being praised. “The company took up to 2 years to implement the ISMS, allowing it to get used to the culture and pace of the company”, says the auditor. Not only internally, but also externally Voet Verhuur benefits from ISO 27001. According to the auditor, by digging deeper into this standard they are better aware of the risks involded in information protection and can communicate better with their software suppliers.

ISO 27001

ISO 27001 is an international standard that describes how to handle the security of information. With this management system for information security (ISO 27001) you show that you handle the information within your organisation responsibly and with integrity.

Implementation and enforcement Safety Culture Ladder

For all signatories, clear enforcement is important for the safety and health culture and a level-playing field. For a contractor who does not or no longer meets the requirements, this can lead to a notice of default and, in extreme cases, to rescission of the contract. The same applies tot private signatories. Although stopping the work because of one of the (sometimes many) contractors does not compl with ViA is not an obvious course of action. Here, too, the ultimate consequence is a cancellation of the contract and replacement by another qualified contractor.

Implementation

After earlier delay because of the corona crisis the Veiligheid in Aanbestedingen will be implemented on January 1st 2022. “For the past 2 years we have been communicating about the viA”, says GCVB chairman Koene Talsma. GCVB clients will use the Safety Culture Ladder in tenders and contracts as a selection criterion, award criterion or contract requirement.

  • Contract requirement: regarding a contract requirement the certification can be shown up to 90 days after the award.
  • Selection and award criterion: when it regards a selection or award criterion work is always given to a party that matches all criteria. All signatories, including clients, are certified or are going to get certified.
