LADOL Free Zone, Lagos, last week, succeeded in retaining its ISO 9001 after auditing thus making LADOL one of the most compliant terminals in Nigeria five years running.
This development was contained in a statement released by LADOL to announce its ISO 9001 certificate success. LADOL is one of the companies that have the ISO 9001 certification in Nigeria.
The external audit leading to the successful renewal of LADOL’s QMS compliance certification was rigorous and thorough.
The Managing Director of LADOL Free Zone, Dr. Amy Jadesimi has described the successful renewal of the company’s International Organisation Standardisation, ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management System, QMS as a being thanks to the staff, management and all stakeholders in LADOL.
Dr. Amy Jadesimi said “Compliance is a way of life for LADOL. In these tough times our high levels of compliance have been critical to us working reliably and safely in the market.This audit also included LADOL’s commitment to and execution of its sustainability plans. In fact, LADOL joined the UN Global Compact and the UN CFO Taskforce in 2021,”
It will be recalled that in 2020, LADOL became the first company in North and West Africa to be ISO 45001 certified. Earlier in the year, LADOL already renewed and retained its International Organization Standardization, ISO 45001:2018+14001:2015
ISO 9001:2015 is a company level certification based on the standard published by the International Organization for Standardization titled “Quality management systems-Requirements”. This standard revises ISO 9001:2008 to include requirements for a new, higher level structure as a common framework to all ISO management systems, risk-based thinking in quality system processes, fewer prescribed requirements with less emphasis on documentation, clear definition of quality management system boundaries and increased leadership requirements. ISO 45001:2018 is for Occupational Health and Safety, OH&S, while 14001:2015 is for Environment Management Systems.
