INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT MANUAL
For many years, TYPSA Group has had an integrated management system in place based on international standard requirements. The system is consistently and systematically applied to all our work.
The Integrated 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.
Certifications and approvals
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. In addition, all TYPSA’s carbon footprints are registered in the carbon footprint, offset and CO2 removal projects register at the Spanish Ministry for Ecological Transition, and was the first engineering company in Spain to receive the carbon footprint reduction and calculation stamp in 2016. We continue to reduce our GHG emissions, which the stamp obtained for 2019 demonstrates.
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.
As part of our commitment to quality, our Client Support Service provides a link to deliver support when and where needed.
The client support line offers an ongoing opportunity for clients to send us their queries and complaints, or any recommendations or suggestions for improvement which might strengthen our relationship and our mutual trust or contribute to better product or service quality.
The Quality and Environment department receives all messages sent via this service and deals with them promptly and effectively to provide the support our clients deserve.
Please contact the person in charge of the contract to obtain your client access key.
