Saturn Gas Turbine’s management quality system confirmed to match international standards

The Moscow office of Bureau Veritas Certification Rus hosted the ceremony to award certificates of compliance for Saturn Gas Turbines’ integrated management system under the requirements of the ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, and OHSAS 18001:2007 international standards and the GOST ISO 9001-2011 national standard.

According to the specialists from Bureau Veritas Certification Rus, Saturn Gas Turbines is a good example of a company that has implemented a strategically planned version of a step-by-step implementation of international standards in the company’s management practices.

Today the company is successfully working under the new management quality system, applied to the basic process models of its business. This includes systems of ecological management, professional health and safety under the requirements ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS18001:2007, and management of the quality under GOST ISO 9001:2008 national standards to confirm the responsible relationship with Russian end-consumers.

The first certificate of compliance was awarded to Saturn Gas Turbines for its management system under GOST R ISO 9001-2008 standards in May 2010, and then came the certification under the ISO 9001:2008 standards — the first experience of working with Bureau Veritas, with the following stage being certification under STO GAZPROM 9001-2006 standards.

This certification is different from the previous ones due to the inclusion in the management system tools for managing ecological aspects and the most ‘humane’ standard, OHSAS, to preserve the environment and to care for the health and safety of personnel. OHSAS standards are applied not only to company personnel, but also to personnel of other organizations working in the interests of Saturn Gas Turbines — suppliers and contractors.
