Sika Head Office in KZN acquired their ISO 9001 standard in 1995, and subsequently adopted the ISO 14001 in 2006 and OHSAS 18001 standards in 2011.

"All Sika factories are required to be ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 certified as a minimum. Being certified and complying with the requirements of the standards enabled us to operate at and hold ourselves accountable to a higher quality operational and performance level. It gives us and our customers the additional confidence that we are working towards international levels and standards." Says Paul Adams, SIKA SA Managing Director.

No new standards were needed to be adapted in the audit. Having an existing system at Sika Head Office helped the process of extending the certification to the GP branch as they worked from the structure and framework in place already.

"It is important that the GP branch be audited regularly (the certification body does surveillance audits annually and our certificates are valid for a three year period) to ensure compliance with the requirements of the standard as well as to identify gaps in the system and areas for continual improvement." Adams added.
