ISO Surveillance of the AFEX Quality Management

Successful Lloyds ISO surveillance of the AFEX Quality Management, Food Safety, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems.


We are pleased to announce that, as of last month (July), AFEX Group’s Quality Management, Food Safety, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety Management systems were successfully audited by LRQA, passing our first surveillance audit successfully.

This is a great achievement being the first of several annual Lloyds surveillance audits of the AFEX ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System, ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management, ISO 22000 Food Safety Management and the OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems respectively. The formal assessment by LRQA a Lloyds registered, International Certifications registration body, found that all of the AFEX management systems comply with ISO requirements.

During the audit process, LRQA provided some very helpful observations, and suggestions for continuous improvement. Which we are keen to follow up and implement in the coming months. Feedback from the surveillance process included comments on the effectiveness of the QHSE and Food Safety Management Systems and that standard compliance was achieved overall through good processes being in place to ensure that there is a continual improvement process into the future.

We look forward to continuing working with our clients utilising our core quality management, food safety, environmental management and occupational health and safety systems, with the knowledge and confidence that these systems have been independently assessed and certified against ISO requirements.
