Certification of the Integrated Management System of UAB Juodeliai Successfully Extended

On 5 September 2016, an annual surveillance audit of the integrated management system of the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai was carried out. The objective of the audit was to evaluate the compliance of the integrated management system with the requirements of international quality, environmental, and occupational health and safety (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001) standards, and to identify possible directions for the improvement of the management system.

The surveillance audit was carried out by a long-term partner of UAB Juodeliai, the international certification company Bureau Veritas. Upon visiting the company’s central office, and the production units in Jūrė and Radviliškis, the auditors have not found any cases of non-compliance.

In the course of the audit, the following strengths of the quality, environmental, and occupational health and safety management system have been highlighted: attitude of the management, making the importance of understanding of the clients’ needs clear to all employees, competence of the staff, and continuous improvement of the system.

A positive evaluation by the auditors encourages the company to continue analysing the clients’ needs and expectations, improve the efficiency of business processes, identify risks and opportunities of processes while implementing the latest, internationally accepted, standards of the quality management and environmental management systems, ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015.
