External auditors have praised a wide range of our business activities, including our significant investment schemes, Low-Carbon Roadmap and employees, after a rigorous assessment against a prestigious quality mark, said British Steel.After 29 days of external assessment by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance, we’ve been successfully recertified to International Standard ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems, which also covers Construction Products Regulations and National Highways Sector Scheme 3B, added British SteelTo satisfy the strict audit requirements, British Steel demonstrated an effective quality management system that’s compliant with all sections of the standard. The team of 5 LRQA auditors covered sites in Scunthorpe, Teesside, Skinningrove, Darlington, Rotherham, Immingham and Lisburn and looked in depth at the processes and systems used in our wide-ranging operations. They covered all operational and functional disciplines including ironmaking, steelmaking, mills and support functions too. And having been reaccredited, British Steel now moves on to LRQA’s normal surveillance programme, which comprises 12-monthly surveillance visits, with the full audit repeated in 3 years’ time.The ISO 9001:2015 standard is the best-practice quality management framework. It’s an important standard to achieve as it provides independent evidence of our ongoing commitment to provide a high level of service to both customers and suppliers.
