In 2020, the decision was made to have ourselves certified to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. After establishing the relevant processes and successful certification, we went one step further in 2021 and implemented SA 8000:2014 (Social Accountability) and ISO 19600:2016 (Compliance Management System) with regard to the Supply Chain Sourcing Obligations Act (LkSG). Due to the ever-increasing compliance requirements, we have also implemented ISO 37001:2018 (Anti-Corruption Management System) certification in March 2022.
The aim of this very elaborate process of multiple certifications was to give our customers the assurance that Kinetronics Europe GmbH not only coordinates limited, internal work processes and carries them out in a traceable manner, but also keeps an eye on the entire process chain from material procurement, production, sales, finances and the well-being of the employees. We will be happy to send you the certificates as a PDF on request.
Since we are an export-oriented company, our process structures for export were revised again parallel to these activities. As a result of this intensive work, we have received, among other things, the AEO-C approval in 2020 from the main customs office in Cologne.
