BS8522 - Commercial Moving Services Standard

BS8522 was developed by the BAR Commercial Moving Group (CMG) in collaboration with the British Standards Institution (BSI), Facilities Managers, procurement and removal professionals. The standard provides the commercial moving industry with recognised, specific and measurable benchmarks which are also relevant to its particular activities, unlike more generic quality standards such as ISO 9001.

As a supply chain partner, CMG are addressing the key issues in today's procurement process.

ISO14001 - Environmental Management System Standard

ISO 14001 is the most well-known standard in the ISO family. Unlike many other quality control standards, the ISO 14001 standard does not have any exact measures. Instead it serves as the framework of control for businesses and establishments to create their own Environmental Management Standards; it focuses on how the standards can be applied in a business or organization to meet the guidelines and standards. Each business must establish its own targets and performance measures.

The ISO 14001 Standard is also the only standard against which businesses and establishments can achieve certification from a third party. Achieving certification is based upon meeting all three of the components of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standards; minimizing how business operations negatively impact the environment, complying with the regulations and laws outlined in the EMS and continual improvement.
