A Local Printer: Certifications
Trust is an essential ingredient in any business, perhaps more so in an online business that you can’t just pop in to! Having confidence in the company you are doing business with is a key decision maker. At A Local Printer we take our responsibilities to our customers very seriously, which is one reason why we took our ISO certifications so soon after launching our website. We hope that our ISO certifications will give you confidence in partnering with us.
A Local Printer are independently audited and certified every year by Certification International who are accredited by UKAS Management Systems.
ISO9001 - Quality Management System
A Local Printer has been certified as conforming to the requirements of ISO9001 and ISO14001, two internationally recognised business standards, since 2008.
ISO9001 is primarily concerned with ensuring consistent quality and continuous improvement is achieved throughout all areas of the business, from customer service, training and accurate systems to supplier audits.
At A Local Printer we use our ISO9001 certification as an incentive to deliver the best possible products and service to our customers - from knowledgeable staff to accurate record keeping and consistent quality products.
ISO14001 - Environmental Management System
Our commitment to the environment was demonstrated very ably in 2006 when we launched the UK’s first online eco-printing website. Our commitment to the environment is as strong now as it was then with our aim to promote and produce eco-friendly printing at the forefront of our business.
Certified since 2008 our ISO14001 principles and policies are second nature to all of our employees; the environmental procedures we follow are part of our everyday life. With regards to our products all of our materials are sourced from sustainable forests, all of our printing is with eco-toners or vegetable oil based inks, all of our plate-making is chemical free and our presses are alcohol free.
