Associations and Accreditation

We are proud of our certifications and associations

Kernow Oils works closely with various industries, associations and forums so that we can stay close to the pulse on what is happening and changes in the sector. In understanding our customers and their needs more we can better anticipate changing market needs and demands. Below are just a handful of our long-standing associations as an illustration of the groups we partner with.

UKAS ISO 9001:2015 Certified

Kernow Oils is proud to have been continuously ISO 9001:2015 certified for over 10 years. ISO 9001:2015 is an internationally recognised independent certification process in quality management systems. ISO 9001:2015 sets out clear requirements to build and maintain a strong Quality Management System. It requires that a 3rd party assess the organisation’s processes, procedures and activities against required best practice standards. In reaching ISO 9001:2015 certification, a company is ensuring that a high level of quality assurance is consistently achieved against a universal benchmark standard. This ISO standard, in tangent with our other ISO certifications, provides the foundations for our working standards.

UKAS ISO 14001 Certified

ISO 14001 is the International Standard for environmental management systems (EMS). It was designed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) to help businesses and other organisations reduce their environmental impact. It achieves this through identifying, managing, monitoring and controlling environmental processes.

Any business, of any size, in any sector, can implement the ISO 14001 framework and apply for ISO 14001 certification of their environmental management plan. With over 420,000 ISO 14001 certificates issued globally, it’s one of the most popular standards in the world.

UKAS ISO 45001 Certified

ISO 45001 is the new international Standard for occupational health and safety management. This standard supersedes the previous OHSAS 18001 Standard. The Standard reduces workplace risks to improve employee safety.

Gaining the ISO 45001 certification allows you to demonstrate that your business operates a best-practice Occupational Health and Safety Management System. This, in turn, reduces the likelihood of accidents and breaches of legislation, as well as improving your organisation’s overall performance.

This Standard surpasses many existing health and safety standards because it has been developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts. It takes into account other international standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions. This makes it one of the most valuable Health and Safety Management Systems available to date.
