WHAT DO CERTIFICATES MEAN?
22-04-2021
Every time we go to a supermarket to buy or go to a restaurant and find a paper, we see the packaging of the different types of paper, different symbols or icons that give us a lot of information about the product and its company.

But have we ever stopped to think what each of these logos means? Now we'll find out what everyone is telling us.

ISO 9001

This certification was created by ISO/TC176's International Organization Technical Committe and focuses on the effectiveness of the quality management system to meet customer requirements.

Check that the company has a certificate issued by a certification entity such as Aenor, TÜV, SGS, etc.

ISO 14001

This is an international standard with which companies demostrate compromise to environmental protection. This is achieved through the management of environmental risks through the activity carried out in their facilities.

ISO 22000

The ISO 22000 standard ensures food security throughout the supply chain. If the company does not have this safety system, or others like IFS or BCR, or the necessary toxicological experiments have not been carried out, the truth of this food security cannot be corroborated.

ISO 50001

This international regulation was created by ISO for maintain and improve the organisations energy management systems. This initiative enables businesses to continuously improve efficiency, energy-related costs and greenhouse gas emissions.



ISO 45001

This international standard explains the requirements needed to have an occupational health and safety management system. To this end, indications are provided that the organisation can provide safe and healthy jobs. Thus, according to the indications, it's possible to prevent accidents at work and health problems.

ECOLABEL

Ecolabels certify a product by reference to its environmental performance. The aim is for customers to have proper communication on the basis of the environmental commitment of each product. To confirm the truth of the label, the company must be registered on the ECOLABEL website.

In 2008, Gomà-Camps was the first company in the Iberian Peninsula of the tisu sector to obtain the European Ecolabel19.

FSC

Paper products with this certification have a origin in well-managed forests with environmental, social and economic benefits. In this case, if the name of the organization does not appear on the web, this company is not actually certified.

HPC IFS

This rule audits the quality of the processes of the manufacturers of domestic cleaning products and the products of personal care. Within the four product blocks is the daily use group where the cooking paper is located, among others. This standard makes the market a product of quality, safety and performance.

ZERO WASTE

The AENOR certificate of Zero Waste credits the company with rating all its fractions of waste, preventing it from having the landfill as its final destination. Into the Gomà-Camps group, we have obtained this certification over last year, which has been an aid to the correct optimisation of processes by focusing on waste production points, which contributes to the driving economy.

HYPOALLERGEN PRODUCT

In order to know that the products we obtain in the supermarket or use in different establishments are not aggressive with our skin, it's necessary to look at whether the manufacturer has carried out the corresponding patch tests dermatological studies of voluntary patients, supervised by a medical team.

COMPOUNDABLE PRODUCT

For both the base paper and the applied inks and glues to be compostable, the company must have a “Tüv, ok compost” certificate.

DISPERSION

The company's laboratory of paper mill must work under the international NF Q34-020 standard to get its products dispersed.

All these certifications are the result of constant work on environmental improvement, improving working conditions for workers and customer satisfaction with the product produced. Within the Gomà-Camps group, you can find all these certifications hung on our website.
