Nova Casanova incorporated in the year 2005 a system of quality management based on the international standard UNE EN ISO 9001. Today, as a result of developing and adapting this standard, our Quality System has matured and developed notably. We base our efforts on the following aspects:
One of the main objectives of our Quality System is to evaluate the level of customer satisfaction to improve service. Therefore, Nova Casanova firmly maintains its commitment to always adapt to our customers requirements.
Because of our Quality System tools, such as audits, incident management, evaluation of customer satisfaction etc., we have the necessary resources to constantly make our quality system more effective.
Nova Casanova considers that to maintain at an optimal level the development of our Quality System, a high degree of participation by all members of our staff, the promotion of training, and raising staff awareness and motivation are essential.
REACH (Regulation No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and Council) is the European regulation concerning registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals). It was approved on December 18, 2006 and came into force on June 1, 2007.
This regulation represents a total reform of the legislative framework concerning substances and prepared chemicals in the European Union. Its main objective is to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment. To do this, it introduces the obligation to make a record of all the chemicals that are marketed within European Union territory. Since it came into force, any substance that is not registered cannot be marketed.
REACH places the responsibility on the industry to manage the risks associated with chemicals. It is based on the principle that it is for manufacturers, importers and intermediate users to ensure that they only manufacture, market or use such substances that do not adversely affect human health or the environment.
This regulation will increase the existing information on chemicals and their associated risks and communicate this to users and consumers.
Among the most important objectives of this policy is to ensure the safe use of chemicals and provide large amount of information. Therefore, as it is being implementing we will see substantial changes in the evaluation and management of chemical substance risks both for workers and consumers and the environment.
