Operational Control Instruments

We control operational processes via our integrated management system (IMS). It stipulates uniform standards throughout the Group for issues relating to quality, environmental protection, health and safety. We have our Group management system analyzed by an international certification organization in accordance with uniform standards based on ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environment). In 2013, we expanded our Group certification to include our South Korean site in Jincheon (certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001) and other sales regions (certified to ISO 9001). At Siltronic, every site is certified to ISO/TS 16949, to ISO 14001 and to OHSAS 18001 (occupational safety), due to this subsidiary’s specific processes and customer requirements.
