Accreditations

CLA UK has worked hard to achieve the following accreditation’s so our customers can rest easy, safe in the knowledge that we have you covered.

ISO 9001 – Quality Management System

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS). It is the most widely used QMS standard in the world, with over 1.1 million certificates issued to organisations in 178 countries.

ISO 9001 certification provides the basis to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system, the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System

ISO 14000 is a set of international standards designed to help organisations operate without negatively affecting the environment, adhere to environmental laws and regulations, and continuously improve processes. One vital component of the ISO 14000 series of standards is ISO 14001:2015 which specifies the requirements for an effective Environmental Management System (EMS).

Safety & Quality Assessment for Sustainability (SQAS)

SQAS is a system of uniform third party assessments to evaluate the performance of Logistics Service Providers and Chemical Distributors. SQAS assessments cover quality, safety, security, environment and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). SQAS is a key element of responsible care in logistics operations.

Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)

An internationally recognised quality mark that shows that an EU trader’s role in the international supply chain is secure and that customs controls and procedures are efficient and meet EU standards.

AEO gives quicker access to some simplified customs procedures and, in some cases, the right to ‘fast-track’ your shipments through some customs and safety and security procedures.

Licences & Memberships

Waste Carrier’s Licence

The regulations on the carriage of waste mean that anyone transporting waste as part of their normal business (whether it’s their waste or someone else’s) has to register for a Waste Carriers Licence. We work closely with our trusted logistics partners to ensure that we have the correct licencing available when required to transport waste.
