Since October 1999 EPAFOS has been certified by the German company TUV CERT and was granted an ISO 9001 quality management certificate not only for the software design, development and support, but also for the installation of complete information science systems. The quality management system for the software design as well as for the other EPAFOS services is a guarantee for the products, the software and the other services provided to our customers by our company. At the same time, this certification successfully reflects our continuous pursuit of improvement of every software production process and service provision to our customers.
Since 2009 our company has developed and at the same time has been implementing the Information Security Management System for activities related to the Technical Support Services provided and to the Information System Development in compliance with the existing ISO/IEC 27001. This certification directs and determines the policy of the company for the safety of information and the provision of high security ASP. EPAFOS is one of the few companies in Greece that have this certificate, which serves as a guarantee for the safety of all services provided within the framework of the software and the hardware.
In 2013 EPAFOS has been inspected and accredited the Environmental Management Certification ISO 14000:2004 by the certification body TUV HELLAS (www.tuvhellas.gr). This certificate confirms the commitment of the Company to operate in an environmentally responsible way.
The Environmental Management System of EPAFOS provides a complete framework for the recording, monitoring and reduction of the environmental consequences related to the operation of the company and its various activities. Furthermore, it safeguards the continuous monitoring of the existing environmental, legal and regulatory framework, as well as the effective control of the level of compliance with it on behalf of the Company.
Within the framework of the Environmental Management System there has been an analysis of the total environmental consequences of EPAFOS which led to the determination of the following main points:
- Energy and natural resources conservation
- Effective paper and solid waste management
- Correct management of every type of information technology items that are being repaired or withdrawn by the Technical Department of EPAFOS
- Integration of environmental criteria in supplies
The Environmental Management Certification as well as the ISO 9001 and ISO 27000 certificates that the company already holds, integrate important parts of our business philosophy, according to which ISO and its processes do not constitute simple certificates, but a small sample confirming the correct organizational structure, the high control standards and the reliability in the operation of our company.
