Box-it Central keeping up High Standards
When it comes to choosing a document management partner, it is always advisable to check out that company’s security and quality credentials to ensure compliance with recognised systems. We thought it would be helpful to remind our clients about the standards adhered to by Box-it Central and the Box-it group as a whole.
BS EN ISO 9001:2008
Box-it Central operates within the framework of BS EN ISO 9001:2008. This is a widely-recognised quality management system covering all areas of our document management business. It demonstrates our commitment to quality of service, putting practices and processes in place to meet the needs of our clients and suppliers to meet the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2008. As part of this, we are regularly assessed to ensure that our standards do not slip. This supports our ethos for continual improvement.
Under the umbrella of Box-it UK, our operations are compliant with the recognised information security management system, ISO 27001:2005. This means we are committed to implementing, maintaining and continually improving our systems for managing information security within our Box-it organisation. ISO 27001: 2005 covers many aspects of information security. A full explanation of this is published on the main Box-it website.
BS EN 15713:2009
Box-it Central’s secure shredding services meet the requirements of BS EN 15713:2009 – the industry standard for Secure Destruction of Confidential Data and Recycling Services. This spans the integrity and security of our staff (their jobs are underpinned by confidentiality and all employees are DBS screened); our vehicles (which are liveried and fully tracked); the processes we deploy to securely shred documents (the process is tracked throughout and takes place in a secure environment – either onsite and offsite – and the size of the shred to make sure it is illegible). It also means we will never destroy a document without our clients’ authorised instruction, and that we can provide a full audit trail right up to the point of issuing a Certificate of Destruction. The shredded material, where possible, is then sent away to be recycled into new paper based products.
BS EN ISO 14001:2004
We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and as such, Box-it as a group is dedicated to the environmental management system: BS EN ISO 14001:2004. As part of this we evaluate and recognise the impact our operations have on the environment and conform to legal requirements. We are committed to, where possible, using renewable energy, and take a responsible view on water, waste management and recycling processes. We also consider the processes used by our suppliers, and any impact this may have, while listening to the views of our customers. We set targets and strive for continual environmental improvement.
