CEMEX obtains ISO and OHSAS certification for all its concrete plants

 An independent confirmation of the company’s quality management, environmental friendliness and work safety 


PRAGUE, 30 DECEMBER 2015 – CEMEX Czech Republic met all the demanding conditions for ISO and OHSAS quality management system certificates in all of its concrete plants in the Czech Republic. The obtained certificates – ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 – confirm the above-standard quality of production and delivery of transport concrete, wall mortar, coating material and brand as well as special products. CEMEX management systems in the areas of quality, environmental protection and occupational health and safety meet all the demanding requirements specified in both Czech and European norms.

The results of the recertification audit confirmed that the management processes and procedures support compliance with the high standards set forth for the production of concrete. “We successfully passed the highly demanding criteria of ISO and OHSAS norms three years ago. I’m happy that this year we once again successfully met the international standards in all three of these areas. The quality audit gave us positive feedback for our work. For our customers this represents evidence of the first-class quality of our products and services,” commented Peter Dajko, CEMEX CEO.

All CEMEX concrete mixing plants in the Czech Republic hold the following certificates:
•    ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems certificate
•    ISO 14001 Environmental Management certificate
•    OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety certificate


The ISO 9001 norm specifies requirements on the quality management systems of a company in compliance with the appropriate regulations and customer requirements. The basic requirement is the implementation, documenting, application and maintenance of a quality management system and its continuous improvement.

The OHSAS 18001 norm specifies the requirements on occupational health and safety and allows organizations to responsibly manage risks and improve the occupational health and safety of their employees.

The ISO 14001 norm specifies requirements on environmental management. By applying such an environmental management system, companies must monitor and control all of their activities which can potentially have an impact on the environment, and this must also be part of the company’s policies and goals.

Certificates are available for download here.
