CSP achieves ISO 14001 recertification and attests to the adoption of best economic and environmental practices

The steelmaker from Ceará was also approved in the audits for IATF and ISO 9001 certifications, expanding the plant’s competitiveness and the markets in which it operates

Companhia Siderúrgica do Pecém (CSP) achieved the ISO 14.001:2015 recertification, attesting, once again, the company’s commitment to protecting the environment. The audit took place from October 26th to 30th, culminating in this result. The steelmaker continuously invests in the quality of its Environmental Management System, implementing the best economic and environmental practices, improving its systems and operational controls, promoting training of its employees and suppliers and ensuring strict environmental monitoring.

These audits are considered essential to determine compliance, assess the capacity and effectiveness of the CSP Management System, in addition to identifying opportunities and strengths. They are also mandatory for the sale of steel plates. “Today it is essential to have a license that certifies compliance with the legal requirements imposed by the legislation. However, this certification also proves that we have management, carry out controls, analyzes and ensure resources to honor our commitment to the environment”, highlights CSP’s Environment Manager, Marcelo Baltazar.

Certification Series

In October, the steelmaker from Ceará was also approved on the audits for the IATF and ISO 9001 certifications. With the IATF, the steelmaker from Ceará is able to supply steel to the automotive sector, attesting to a series of internal requirements, in addition to having a premium product.  ISO 9001, on the other hand, attests to the company’s quality management system, which establishes guidelines for the production of steel, aiming at making the Pecém steelmaker a world reference in safety, quality, cost, technological and sustainable development.

In addition to these, CSP maintains ten other certifications. The certifications, that are strategic for the plant, increase its competitiveness and the markets in which it operates. Since 2016, CSP has exported steel plates to 23 countries.
