Platform Property Care – a subsidiary of Platform Housing Group - has passed an external audit for ISOs 9001 and 14001 by Direct Assessment Services – or DAS - a UKAS accredited certification body for international ISO standards.

The company was originally awarded the certification in October 2022; this latest review means the certificate is now valid for three years.

The audit - which took place between earlier this year - covered our Witham and Thame operating regions.

ISO 9001 is the world’s international standard for Quality Management Systems and 14001 for Environmental Management Systems.

Mark Lane, QESH Manager at Platform Property Care said : “It’s a true measure of a great team effort to achieve recertification of these internationally recognised standards; it demonstrates our ongoing commitment to all stakeholders and external regulators in relation to our quality and environmental management practices.  For our many customers, it also gives reassurance that our work is of a recognised standard.  It places the customer at the very heart of what we do.  We are justifiably proud to have been awarded these certifications again.”

The audit involved interviews with senior managers, lead engineers, service managers and trades people as well as workplace site inspections.

Preparation for the audit involved compiling appropriate policies, procedures and systems; the process looked at how Platform Property Care demonstrates compliance with the clauses of the ISO standards and related evidence.

Mark concluded : “These standards give assurance to the Board and the wider Platform Housing Group business, that Property Platform Care is a sector leading organisation.  External audits give a completely impartial measure of a business and we are proud of our achievements.  Our thanks and congratulations go to all those involved.”
