Case Study: Global Management Systems
"Intertek's flexibility and openness to new and different approaches helps to add value through the audit process." Brett Carroll, Global Environment and Safety & Health Manager, Nestlé
In 2006, Nestlé’s Executive Board decided to adapt the existing Nestlé management systems to full conformity with the international standards ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, and to certify all Nestlé factories against these standards by 2010. The company was challenged to motivate a large number of factories worldwide to follow this tight schedule, while also monitoring progress to make sure the deadlines were met.
Intertek worked closely with Nestlé’s headquarters to make sure they reached their ambitious goals. A global Intertek team coordinated audits for all services, helping to reduce the number of site visits and saving Nestlé valuable time and money.
