ISO 14001 – Environmental Management
The world’s most recognised environmental management system. CSH Transport’s daily operations are more sustainable whilst impact on the environment is reduced. Our responsibilities to ISO 14001 include effecting fuel and parts efficiencies, minimising vehicle emissions, reduction of engine noise pollution and impact on the environment.
ISO 9001 – Quality Management System
The internationally recognised Quality Management System (QMS) standard is a powerful business improvement tool. With the ISO 9001 Quality Management certification, CSH Transport consistently provides products, services and operations that meet customer and regulatory standards.
SQAS – Safety and Quality Assessment for Sustainability
SQAS (Safety & Quality Assessment for Sustainability) 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 not a certification system; it is an assessment system that provides a detailed factual assessment report. The SQAS assessment reports allow chemical companies to evaluate their logistics service providers according to their own standards and requirements. SQAS is a key element of Responsible Care in logistics operations. CSH’s report number is 87646.
Cefic, the European Chemical Industry Council, manages the SQAS system and ensures its integrity.
ADR – European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road
ADR, formally the Agreement of 30 September 1957 concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road is a 1957 United Nations treaty that governs transnational transport of hazardous materials. « ADR » is derived from the French name for the treaty: “Accord relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route”.
