Certex®: Re-certification Lamme Group, Germany & The Netherlands

Recently 3 locations of Lamme Group have succeeded in getting through the re-certifcation-audits. It concerns Lamme Textile Management GmbH in Bad Vilbel (Germany), Lamme Textielbeheer B.V. in Nederhorst den Berg (The Netherlands) and Lamme Textile Management B.V. at Schiphol (The Netherlands).

These 3 locations are now allowed to show the Certex® Quality Management System Certificate, meaning ISO 9001 standards are met, as well as NEN-EN 14065 RABC, the standard that surveys on specific hygiene risks within a laundry.

Certex® is the accredited international certification scheme provided by CINET in the same framework as Cerclean®. CINET is the global non-profit association for the PTC Industry and provider of a full package of E-learning and practical support to establish a Quality & Hygiene Handbook for Certex® and Cerclean® audits.

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.
