Functio were appointed by ADS Joinery Services to produce and prepare a Management System to gain certification to FSC and PEFC Chain of Custody
ADS Joinery had a short timescale to achieve accreditation due to a change in client requirements whereby notification was received that they would no longer purchase products that were not FSC Certified.
In order to gain certification to FSC / PEFC a management system has to be put into place that meets both standards. Functio reviewed each standard and undertook a gap analysis against ADS Joinery’s existing processes. Whilst preparing the management system Functio not only looked at complying with the standard but also ensured that the management system fit in as far as possible with existing procedures and was straight forward to maintain on an ongoing basis.
Once the system was prepared all the required forms and procedures were put in place and all staff were trained and the system implemented.
When the FSC / PEFC Audit was undertaken Functio undertook a lead role in the audit and the audit was successfully passed with only two non-conformance’s that were easily resolved.
When Functio build a new management system we always look at the best system for the business to manage and build it from here rather than putting together a document that meets the standard but is not possible to implement into the business.
ADS Joinery Said:-
“Kieran built and developed a completely new Management System for FSC & PEFC to enable us to achieve certification for both standards in a very short space of time, three weeks! We cannot thank him enough for his hard work, time and support, particularly in making a daunting challenge for us flow smoothly.
Well done Kieran!”
