Over 15 years ago SIP initiated a Quality Policy to gain accreditation to the ISO 9000 Quality System. When the new registration was introduced, we upgraded our accreditation to the new standard, ISO 9001:2000.

In 2008, SIP Ltd was one of the first companies in the European oil and chemical industry to be granted accreditation for the new Quality Management Systems, ISO 9001:2008.

SIP’s Quality Assurance Manager, Mike Peters, said that maintaining this important quality system is significant for a small company like SIP, who have flourished over the last 20 years by providing a high quality service to customers large and small.

ISO systems set the standard for companies who wish to succeed through improved customer satisfaction, staff motivation and continual improvement. One of the first significant QMS was introduced 30 years ago when the UK Standard BS 5750 was issued. This was adopted by the International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) in 1987, modified in 1994 & again in 2000 when three standards were combined into one as ISO 9001:2000. Since that time, this has become the most widely used quality system in the world, accepted by almost 900,000 organizations in 170 countries.

SIP has a number of members of staff, from different departments, who are qualified as Internal ISO 9001 Auditors, who help maintain SIP’s commitment to quality.

Also as part of SIP‘s quality commitment to our customers, a REACH Implementation Team was established to look after the task of ensuring effective communication throughout the supply chain, whilst the pre-registration and eventual full registration of our products was progressed.
