Although the chemical industry is guided by numerous rules and laws to save humans, the environment as well as the organisations itself form associated risks, these gaps are still left uncovered which immediately draw attention. Risks that find a source in the hazardous wastes, chemical fibres, harmful solvents, contaminated water and lethal gases.
The principal natural resources, starting with water, oil, mineral reserves, fuels, and natural gas, are used by the chemical manufacturing industries. To create the final goods, these were either utilised in crucial processes or were the topic of intricate reactions. Petrochemicals, agrochemicals (pesticides, insecticides), rubber, polymers, plastic, paints, scents or cosmetics, and many more items are typical products of the sector. While the general public uses all of these products for a variety of purposes, the manufacturers must take care to use the raw materials in the safest manner possible to prevent end users’ health from being negatively impacted.
B.R. Agrotech Limited, manufacturers of pesticides have an important responsibility that involves taking due diligence of their processes in the most critical way. Towards this goal B.R. Agrotech made it mandatory to go for ISO certification.
International regulatory standards were quite beneficial for their pesticide manufacturing business.
The ISO 9001:2015 international standard for quality establishes the guidelines and rules for creating an effective Quality Management System (QMS). The introduction of procedures and controls by the QMS helps to make the process efficient, which in turn ensures the quality of the finished goods. Achieving it has guaranteed that the chemical company has a committed approach to quality and that the products are of exceptional quality.
The well recognized Environmental Management System (EMS) framework is defined by ISO 14001:2015, a standard for environmental safety. Being compliant with ISO 14001 standard has made B.R. Agrotech to evaluate, avoid, lessen, or even completely eradicate the negative environmental effects of the chemical processing operations with the help of an EMS.
The standard has also assisted the business in adhering to environmental legal requirements and preventing fines, penalties, reputational harm, or open legal disputes.
To ensure that all of the company’s important employees are protected from health risks and dangers while working in the demanding or intricate chemical manufacturing process, ISO 45001:2018 certification is required. This standard establishes the principles for creating a cogent OHSMS (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) that encourages stringent worker safety procedures and steps to ensure a hygienic workplace.
Lastly, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) refers to the procedures that producers, processors, and packagers should follow to make sure their goods are pure, effective, and safe.
GMP mandates a quality-focused production method, enabling businesses to reduce or completely do away with instances of contamination, confusion, and mistakes. As a result, the buyer is shielded from buying dangerous and subpar goods. However, violation of GMP regulations risk severe repercussions, such as product recalls, seizures, fines, and jail time. It handles a variety of topics, such as record-keeping, employee credentials, hygienic conditions, equipment validation, and the processing of complaints. The majority of GMP criteria are quite broad and undefined, allowing each producer to choose how to effectively apply the required controls.
ISO Cert wishes their best to B.R. Agrotech for achieving these certifications at this time.
