Rhodia: Successful ISO Requalification Audit
Rhodia, Lyon/France, announced today that in June 2007 Rhodia Polyamide Intermediates & Polymers (I&P) successfully completed the triennial ISO 9001 audit allowing renewal of its European certificate.
This certification, originally covering the French sites of Belle-Etoile and Chalampé, now includes two new sites, at Blanés in Spain and at Freiburg in Germany. Certification is now in place for all Rhodia sites producing the polymer type Stabamid in Europe. Det Norske Veritas (DNV) was the certifying body.
During this audit, DNV specially commended I&P management on a “cultural process approach” deployed throughout the company at “process owner” level at all production sites.
In addition to passing the quality renewal audit, DNV also certified the company’s Blanès production site according to ISO 14001 environmental standard in a combined ISO 9001/14001 audit.
