GAC Oman recently organised a training programme for all its managers on the Quality Management System (QMS) and Environmental Management System (EMS) transition to the new 2015 standards. Both standards have been updated and companies certified for the earlier versions need to complete their upgrades by September 2018. The transition training was delivered in Oman by DNV-GL, our third-party certification body.
GAC Oman aims to transition to the EMS standard in Q4 2017 and to the QMS standard in Q1, 2018.
Along with the transition training, the company organised an internal auditor refresher session for its team of internal auditors who are now familiar with the new requirements.
GAC Kazakhstan, GAC Netherlands, PT GAC Samudera Logistics and GAC Australia have completed recertification to the new standards.
