Quality & Safety
We are a quality operator and willingly sign up to the toughest accreditation regimes. ISO9001, BRC Storage & Distribution, MHRA and COMAH. All of these keep us on our toes – and give you the assurance that your goods are in safe hands.
The Safety and Quality Assessment for Sustainability operated by CEFIC holds us to the highest standards in Safety and Quality. We have some of the best scores in Europe, recognising our commitment to accreditation regimes.
The Control of Major Accidents Hazards Regulations 2015 govern the operation of chemical and hazardous warehouses throughout the UK. The regulations implement the European SEVESO Directive and help mitigate the effects of major accidents involving dangerous substances. H.W. Coates was one of the first to meet the standards.
