Certification of the management systems

GEA had already started clustering its sites with integrated management systems under the umbrella of a unified GEA group certificate in 2016. GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft, headquartered in Düsseldorf, was certified as meeting the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, BS OHSAS 18001:2007 as well as ISO 50001:2011 in June 2016, and, thus, heads the group of certified sites. Integration priority is subject to the expiry dates of the respective certificates awarded. In the year under review, the company succeeded in subsuming all certified sites of the Business Area Equipment as well as the first three sites of the Business Area Solutions under the group’s matrix certificate. Moreover, GEA Food Solutions Germany GmbH in Wallau was awarded its first certification in accordance with the DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 and the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 standards.
