Certex®: CWS certified on the basis of Certex® ISO 9001:2015

Five branches of CWS have implemented the new Certex® manual (version 2017). This means that these branches meets the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015 and EN 14065. The recertification for this has recently been successfully completed!

CWS Nederland B.V. and CWS-Lin B.V in Den Bosch, Wasserij De Fontein NV in Puurs (België), CWS-boco BeLux NV in Berchem (België) and CWS-boco BeLux N.V. in Sandweiler (Luxemburg) are allowed to use the Certex® Certificate Quality Management System. This demonstrates compliance with ISO 9001 and NEN-EN 14065 RABC, the standard that monitors specific hygiene risks within a laundry. The RABC standard can be seen as a counterpart to the HACCP standard known within the hospitality industry.

Certex® benchmark since years!
In the Netherlands Certex® acquired a solid position in industrial textile service. Based on the international acknowledged standards ISO9001:2015 and EN 14065 “Textiles – Laundry processed textiles – Biocontamination control system”. Certex® is developed by the Dutch association for textile service companies together with the Dutch union for quality in hospitals. The established requirements and criteria, with specific values for microbial contamination, were adopted by the Dutch Working Group Infection Prevention in the guideline “Linnen in Hospitals”.

Get started with Cerclean®!
The development of such a complete and effective quality and hygiene management system is challenging. To help companies CINET developed Cerclean®, a comprehensive program offering full support to enable anyone to gain essential knowledge. By following the step-by-step approach, a comprehensive quality management and hygiene management system is implemented. A system tailored to the individual company, processes and customers in various market segments in which they operate.

Certificates icing on the cake
After audits by certified auditors and approval by the CINET International Certification committee, a Cerclean® certificate will be granted. Certificates prove conformity to the requirements. These reflect international standards and international best practices which are the foundations of the CERCLEAN® program!
After acquiring the Cerclean® certificates, companies can take the next step and acquire the accredited Certex® certificate. A small step since Cerclean® is derived from and based on Certex® so the audit should be barely more than a formality.
