Our certification under standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and the ISPS Code evidence our effective commitment to our clients, internal collaborators and surroundings.
This is part of a globalized market, imposing stricter requirements on companies in terms of competitiveness and productivity, through management that is good for the environment, natural resources and neighboring communities.
Terminal Cerros de Valparaíso (TCVAL) was the first port terminal in Chile to achieve an Integrated Managed System certified under standards ISO 9001:2015 (Quality), ISO 14001:2015 (Environment) and ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health & Safety) in a single certification process.
Standard ISO 45001:2018 is equivalent to Occupational Health & Safety, laying down the path towards a zero-accident terminal, identifying hazards and evaluating risks associated to port activity. In turn, ISO 9001:2015 is related to quality service, with a focus on service integrity. The third rule is ISO 14001:2015, which is related to the environment and environmental management, where control measures are implemented and impact is assessed.
Furthermore, TCVAL is certified under ISPS (International Ship and Port Security), an international code to protect ships and port facilities. The aim is for the Terminal to be authorized to assist container ships, dry and refrigerated fractioned load vessels, as well as general cargo and passengers.
