International accreditation for WMG’s Energy Innovation Centre

The Energy Innovation Centre (EIC) at WMG, University of Warwick has successfully achieved two key ISO Management Systems Standards (MSS).

ISO Management Systems Standards set out requirements or guidance to help organisations manage policies and processes to achieve specific objectives and maintain high customer service. Each ISO has specific points of clarification.

The first MSS that the EIC was assessed against was ISO 9001 on Quality Management Systems. The audit covered the entire business operation within WMG’s battery research facilities, including the manufacture of battery cells and packs, testing of chemistries from degradation and performance through to full destructive testing.

The second standard ISO 14001 covers Environment Management Systems. This standard specifies the requirements for a sustainable management system that can be used to enhance environmental performance. This included a full assessment of how environmental risks are managed within the EIC.

The EIC was successful in achieving full certification of both standards.

Mark Amor-Segan, Chief Engineer based in the EIC at WMG, University of Warwick said: “We are one of the first university research groups to achieve this. This certification will align us with many of our industrial partners in terms of the fundamental principles of quality and environmental performance.

“Achieving this is a testament to the hard work from everyone within the EIC, and demonstrates our commitment to develop, implement and maintain an integrated quality and environmental management system (IMS) that meets the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and our company, legal and other obligations.”…Read more
