On October 29, 2018, TÜV Rheinland Philippines awarded the certificate for ISO 9001:2015 to HAMBURG Trading Corporation. Mr. Tristan Arwen G. Loveres, TÜV Rheinland Philippines Chief Operating Officer, presented it to Horst Kessler von Sprengeisen, Lenie Bermudez, and Jaysie de Belen, HAMBURG’s Chairman, President, and Quality Management Specialist, respectively.
In his welcome remarks, Mr. Kessler reiterated that this is not the culmination of a year-long preparation, but the beginning of greater milestones for the company. Meanwhile, Ms. Bermudez thanked HAMBURG employees for their support and asked for their continuous cooperation to uphold the quality systems of the company.
ISO 9001:2015 “defines who is responsible for which quality-relevant activities and which procedures must be followed (in a company). The standard requires a control loop, which needs constant internal re-evaluation of the system that promotes a continuous improvement process (CIP). This ensures that quality orientation is lived by each of your employees day by day.”
Aside from the ISO 9001:2015 certification, HAMBURG is currently in the process of obtaining compliance to Good Warehousing Practices (GWP) based on CODEX Alimentarius CAC/RCP 1-1969 Rev.4-2003 under the same agency.
