Certification Audit of RPG Služby Produced Excellent Results

Ostrava – RPG Služby, a joint company of RPG Real Estate and OKIN GROUP a.s., underwent a successful process of certification for the Integrated Management System. The Integrated Management System includes the Quality Management System (ISO 9001), Environmental Management System (ISO 14001), and Occupational Health and Safety System (OHSAS 18001).

The certification audit was performed by three auditors from Bureau Veritas Certification. The certificates were issued in the English and Czech language versions and they declare the scope of the audit for 'Správa a údržba nemovitostí' (Real Estate Management and Maintenance), 'Pozemní stavitelství' (Ground Construction), and 'Procesní outsourcing' (Process Outsourcing) with a permitted exclusion of 'Návrh a vývoj' (Design and Development). "We were very pleased to hear from the auditors that the certification audit of the three systems was concluded without a single nonconformity," says Petr Handl, External Relations Director of RPG Real Estate.

In the middle of 2007, the company established its goal to acquire the aforementioned certificates. "In order to succeed, it was necessary to create the Quality Management Department, configure the processing access, and concentrate the efforts of all company employees towards this goal. Only in virtue of the accurate setup of all these measures, the company managed to implement the Integrated Management System, which conforms to the standards mentioned above," stated Handl.

“Obtaining of the certificates means a conclusion of our efforts to reach the declared quality of the services. Our clients will therefore receive higher level of assurance that they will get the services in the promised quality, and simultaneously, the services conforming to the current requirements of the environmental protection and occupational health and safety," explains Daniela Fajkusová, Quality Manager at RPG Služby, and adds: "These two recent attributes represented by the EMS and OHSAS Certificates are by no means common among the Czech Republic companies and they are highly valued abroad as well. Therefore, we believe that we will become much more attractive for our clients and will be able to expand their current portfolio".

RPG Služby would like to get a step ahead and reach the standard of the performance improvement pursuant to ISO 9004 and ISO 9004-2. This step would enable the company to direct its activities explicitly towards higher efficiency and to make the Quality Management System specialized towards the area of the services provided by RPG Služby.
