At APxpress we always strive to improve and develop where possible, including occupational safety, health management, environmental management systems and of course quality management. APxpress conforms to an international and national standard which is further confirmed by our accreditations and certificates.
The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. The certification confirms compliance with laws that control or prohibit certain substances and chemicals (please refer to Oeko-Tex® website for list of requirements).
The ISO 14000 family addresses various aspects of environmental management. ISO 14001:2004 provides the requirements for environmental management systems (EMS).
An EMS that meets the ISO 14001:2004 requirements provides management tools necessary to identify and control the environmental impact of its activities, products or services; continually improve environmental performance; and implement a systematic approach to setting environmental objectives and targets, achieving those targets and demonstrating that those targets have been achieved.
ISO 9001:2008 provides standardised requirements for a best in class quality management system, regardless of what the organisation does or its size. The ISO 9001:2008 standard provides a proven framework for managing quality that will lead to producing consistently higher quality products. ISO 9001:2008 sets out the requirements a best in class quality system must meet, without specifying how they should be met for any particular organisation. ISO 9001:2008, as well as other ISO standards, have been developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), the world’s largest developer and publisher of international standards. ISO is a network of national standards institutes of 160 countries with a Central Secretariat in Geneva.
We are pleased to partner with Time4Trees on both their indigenous regeneration project and the Trees4Schools scheme.
We believe teaching children the importance of planting and regeneration is key to a more sustainable future. Planting fruit trees with schools not only helps a child understand the life cycle of a plant but also it’s part in the production of fruit in the food chain. Our commitment to the UK regeneration project not only helps in the strategic planting of trees and hedgerows but aids flood mitigation through preventative soil erosion.
