Terminal received the 2015 version of ISO 9001 and 14001, and the 2007 version of OHSAS 18001 from an international certification entity
Brasil Terminal Portuário (BTP), the largest containers terminal in South America, has just received the Integrated Management System (SGI) certification, which attests to the fulfilment of Quality, Environment, Safety and Occupational Health requirements.
Recommended for certification in December 2017, after an audit by Bureau Veritas (BVQI), BTP reaffirms its commitment to excellence in its operations in the Port of Santos by adopting an integrated management system based on the latest versions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (2015), and OHSAS 18001 standards (2007).
The adjustment of BTP´s management system to ISO e OHSAS lasted approximately one year and counted on the engagement of all departments, which reviewed and integrated the administrative and operating processes. “At BTP, all structuring phases of the integrated management system were fully complied with. In this sense, the participation and commitment of the team were essential, since they undertook the responsibility to achieve this international recognition together,” said Joel Contente, CAO of BTP.
The Company’s chief executive officer, Antonio Passaro, believes that the gains from the international standards granted represent the continuous improvement of the processes that guide BTP´s business. “The benefits from this management system are extended to our employees, the customers and the community, as we achieve new levels of excellence in the quality of services provided, and, particularly, regarding environmental, health and safety care – values that we have been practicing since our foundation,” said the executive.
The SGI certification is effective for 3 years. Additionally, in September last year, Brasil Terminal Portuário was granted the Authorized Economic Operator (OEA) certification, which was issued by the Brazilian Federal Revenue Service in order to attest to cargo safety.
