ISO 9001 Quality

ISO 9001 is an internationally acclaimed framework for quality management.

The ISO 9001 standard sets out business best practices based on the following key principles of quality management:

  • Customer focus – improving customer satisfaction and retention
  • Leadership – defining key roles and responsibilities
  • Engagement of people – improving internal communication
  • Process approach – increasing efficiency and reducing waste
  • Improvement – ensuring business growth through continual improvement
  • Evidence-based decision making – identifying and addressing customer and employee requirements
  • Relationship management – making organisations better to work for and do business with.

PSL’s quality management system complies with ISO 9001 standards.

Full accreditation was achieved in 2012 and has been successfully audited annually.

By introducing the best practices set out in ISO 9001 PSL has become more efficient, more connected, and achieved continued growth throughout this period.

ISO 14001 Environment

ISO 14001 is the internationally recognised standard for the environmental management of businesses.
It prescribes controls for commercial activities that have an effect on the environment, which include:

  • Use of natural resources
  • Handling and treatment of waste
  • Energy consumption.

PSL received certification to this standard in 2016, and it has supported a number of green initiatives already in place.
PSL has reduced its carbon footprint through our FSC membership, introduction of energy efficient lighting throughout our facility and the recycling of waste, including packaging, paper and plastics.

ISO 27001 Data Security

An ISO 27001 information security management system is a systematic and pro-active approach to effectively managing risks to the security of your company’s confidential information.


The system promotes efficient management of sensitive corporate information, highlighting vulnerabilities to ensure it is adequately protected against potential threats. It encompasses people, process and IT systems.


Information is an asset which, like other important business assets, has a value to an organisation and consequently needs to be suitably protected.


This standard has helped our company coordinate all our security efforts both electronically and physically, coherently, cost effectively and with consistency and prove to prospects and customers alike that PSL take the security of their personal / business information seriously.


The main benefits include: 

  • Cost savings through incident reduction
  • Smoother running operations as responsibilities and processes are clearly defined
  • Improved business image in the marketplace – a trustworthy company.
  • Working with a trustworthy provider maintains the company’s own integrity to the safeguarding of its data
  • Installs confidence further down the supply chain resulting in stronger customers / supplier relationships
  • Having appropriate access controls in place lowers the risk of accidental exposure to employees of confidential/sensitive information
  • Reassurance that their employer is meeting data handling security guidelines
  • Defines clearly and precisely roles and responsibilities therefore job satisfaction and productivity is increased.

ISO 22301 Business Continuity


Business Continuity Management System or (BCMS) is a framework and roadmap designed to help organisations understand the risks to their business, and prioritise these threats so they can be mitigated and factored into business planning.


This international standard specifies the requirements of a management system that will enable an organisation to identify, and therefore, reduce events that would disrupt their normal operation.


Events such as fire, floods, natural disasters, thefts or criminal acts, IT disruption, staff shortages or even a terrorist attack can be identified, before beginning a recovery plan to minimise disruption in the running of your business.


By its very nature, a continuity planning and management system like ISO 22301 means that these problems can be identified before they happen. This has allowed PSL to put plans in place to ensure the smooth running of our critical business functions during a time of crisis.
