A seminar was held on 23 November at the Centre for Studies and Experimentation in Public Works (CEDEX) to present the new Guides for the application of ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 standards in construction companies, published by AENOR.
These new publications were drafted by a working group from the Advisory Board on Construction Company Certification, in which ACCIONA Construction actively participated.
The purpose of these guides is to facilitate the implementation of the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards in the construction sector after adapting their content to the new 2015 versions, to support organizations implementing quality and environmental management systems.
The presentation seminar, organized by AENOR and SEOPAN, was opened by CEDEX Director General José Trigueros and included talks by Director General of AENOR, as well as representatives from the Ministry of Public Works and the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment.
The subsequent roundtable discussion presented the most relevant new developments included in the Guides by representatives from several participating construction companies. The objective is to spread the use of these management systems in the sector, benefitting not only the construction companies, but also customers and developers, end users and society in general.
The seminar was closed by Manuel Prieto, deputy director general for Industrial Quality at the Ministry of Industry.
The Guides will be available soon for free download from the AENOR and SEOPAN websites.
