Quality and safety policy

ELECTROQUÍMICA DE HERNANI, S.A. (EHER) guarantees Quality and Food Safety through the following certified management systems:

- ISO 9001:2015 which applies to the production and distribution of derivatives from the membrane chlorine electrolysis and chlorate electrolysis: chlorine, caustic soda, sodium hypochlorite, hydrochloric acid, hydrogen, sodium chlorate and trichloroisocyanuric acid.

The principles of EHER's Quality and Safety Policy, which must be considered within the main actions, are the following:

  • Ensure the satisfaction of the interested parties and the compliance with the mutually agreed requirements.
  • Establish measurable quality and food safety objectives to maintain continuous improvement within the organisation, and periodically revising these objectives and promoting actions in order to achieve them.
  • Analyse objectives, non-conformities, customer complaints, audit results and any information sources detected in order to know the strengths and weaknesses of the integrated system, and be able to develop actions to address risks and opportunities.
  • Guarantee all personnel the level of training necessary for the correct and safe development of their activities.
  • Promote awareness and motivation of our own personnel, subcontractors and suppliers on the importance of the implementation and development of a Quality and Food Safety System that meets the expectations of the organisation.
