INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT MANUAL
For many years, TYPSA Group has had an integrated quality, environment, OH&S and R+D management system in place based on ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and UNE 166002 international standard requirements. The system is consistently and systematically applied to all our work.
The Integrated Quality, Environment, Occupational Health and Safety and R+D Management Manual is the vehicle for implementing the system. The Manual provides a framework to coordinate the rigorous fulfilment of contractual requirements in strict compliance with applicable procedures and technical guidelines in order to ensure appropriate internal monitoring, verification, validation, audit and recording processes.

TYPSA Group is aware of today’s climate change problems and of the impact of greenhouse gas emissions. When considering the environmental and sustainability aspects of our projects we prioritise the study of emissions and measures to reduce them.
In addition, we calculate the carbon footprint generated by our own activity as a consulting and engineering firm. Since 2013, TYPSA’s carbon footprint in Spain has been calculated and verified according to ISO 14064 scope 1, 2 and 3.
TYPSA’s carbon footprints are all registered in the carbon footprint, offset and carbon dioxide absorption projects register at the Spanish Ministry for Ecological Transition. TYPSA is the first engineering firm in Spain to receive the carbon footprint calculation and reduction stamp two years in a row.
All TYPSA subcontractors are subject to evaluation of the work contracted. On completion, works are evaluated based on deadline and quality criteria. Unsatisfactory results are grounds for supplier exclusion. This final evaluation is kept in each supplier’s file, which can be consulted by the entire organisation.
