The production plant in Switzerland is certified regarding the following standards
ISO 9001, 14001, ISO 45001 (Switzerland)
The quality management system ISO 9001 serves as a tool for the enhancement and continuous improvement of our performance and ultimately boosts the quality of the products we produce and supply, in turn leading to very high levels of customer satisfaction.
Unisto meets all requirements with regard to ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System). We see it as our obligation to adhere to all the guidelines relating to health and safety now and in the future, and thus to ensure a safe working environment for our employees and the trust of our customers.
ISO 14001 Enviromental Management System confirms the ongoing efforts that Unisto takes towards environment and fits to the high quality standards of the company.
Our employees think and act with environmental awareness resulting in sustainable business practice and market services. We minimise waste of all kinds and recycle as much as possible both inside and outside our production plants.
We ensure compliance from all our suppliers demanding certificates detailing the properties of the materials supplied.
When required to do so, we can also make these certificates and data sheets available to customers.
Our environmental management system was introduced after first setting out our sustainability policy and goals from which we developed our environmental program. We are committed to continous improvement by continual environmental management review.
All this means that when you purchase Unisto security seals, you can be certain that all of the environmental aspects have been taken into account.
ISO Certificates 9001, 14001, ISO 45001 (Switzerland)
The aim of the REACH regulation (1907/2006/EC) is the protection of human health and the environment through early and improved identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances.
According to the EU Chemical Regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), since 2007 only chemical substances that have been registered may enter into circulation within Europe.
As the “downstream user”, Unisto does not have an obligation to register the manufactured products. We identify fully with REACH and work exclusively with suppliers whose raw materials are appropriately registered.
The regulation came into force on 1 June 2007 and has the following primary objectives:
- To better protect humans and the environment from possible risks in the handling of chemicals. Here it is the responsibility of industry to undertake risk assessments
- To enable the free circulation of chemical substances within the EU
- To boost competition and innovation
- To promote alternative test methods for the evaluation of risks
Moreover the raw materials employed to produce our goods comply with the material and substances defined in the articles 33 and 57 of the Regulation 1907/2006/EC (ECHA Canditate-List of substances of very high concern), meaning that no materials and substances from this list are used.
REACH Confirmation (Switzerland)
Food law provisions
Tests carried out at an independent testing institute have shown that many of our products and synthetic colours correspond to the requirements of EU Regulation 1935/2004 “Materials and articles intended to come into contact with food”, including EU Regulation 10/2011 “Plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food”.
A known consignor is a company that sends goods via air freight or airmail in its name and on its own account. When dispatching it adheres to security standards and provisions that are applicable.
Certification as a known consignor (for air freight only) saves time-consuming and costly checks at the airport.
A known consignor carries out the checks itself and is responsible for the item’s safe passage.
Thereafter the freight can be moved to the airport cargo handler using a certified carrier and loaded directly on to the aircraft.
The following points are ensured:
- Protection of air freight from unauthorised access
- Deployment of verified, specially trained staff
- Control and protection of cargo from access and tampering
- Consignment-based security declaration
- Guaranteeing security requirements throughout the entire transport chain
Since Unisto AG, Horn is a validated known consignor, our customers save both time and additional costs.
