In an ever-competitive market, delivering high-quality products isn’t just an option—it’s a necessity. At Impact Labelling we pride ourselves on our unflinching dedication to quality, safety, and environmental responsibility. In this post, we’ll explore the rigorous standards we uphold and why they matter for you as our valued customer.
Our Awards and Accreditations: More Than Just Badges
ISO 9001 – Quality Management
Since 1999, we have been certified under ISO 9001, an international standard that sets the criteria for a quality management system. This isn’t just a fancy title to put on our website; it shapes our organisational ethos. From the procurement of materials to the delivery of the final product, every process is streamlined and monitored to ensure quality. The ISO 9001:2015 certification is a globally recognised standard, which assures our clients that they are in good hands at Impact labelling.
ISO 45001 – Prioritising Health and Safety
The well-being of our employees and customers is of utmost importance. This is why we also have the ISO 45001 certification, an international standard for health and safety at work. The ISO 45001 helps us in risk management and ensures that our operations are as safe as possible, thereby providing a healthy & safe working environment. Plus, it also serves as a compliance marker for health and safety laws, which is particularly beneficial for our corporate clients who require stringent safety standards.
ISO 14001 – Environmental Management
We have also achieved ISO 14001 certification, which outlines the criteria for an environmental management system. This means that we are not just committed to delivering high-quality labels but also do so in a manner that minimises our carbon footprint. From waste management to energy consumption, our operations are calibrated to be as eco-friendly as possible. Over 30% of our energy requirements are generated on-site from renewable sources, significantly reducing our reliance on non-renewable energy sources and lessening our environmental footprint.
Quality Ink for Quality Products
Nestle, EuPia & SWISS Ordinance Approved Digital Inks
In the realm of label printing, the caliber of ink is paramount, particularly when it comes to food products. Our Digital printing press is equipped with a trifecta of rigorously vetted inks to ensure maximum quality and safety. First, we utilise Nestle-approved inks, providing an added layer of confidence that the labels we produce meet the most stringent safety standards, especially for food packaging. Second, our digital inks are EuPIA compliant, aligning with the European Printing Ink Association’s guidelines that not only satisfy European norms but also serve as a benchmark for global quality. Lastly, we adhere to the Swiss Printing Inks Ordinance, meaning our digital inks meet exhaustive criteria covering substance identity, physical and chemical properties, intended use, and necessary authorisations. This comprehensive approach to ink quality underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering products that are both safe and superior.
Low Migration Flexo Inks
We are one of the only print houses in Ireland that use dedicated low-migration flexographic inks. Despite offering the same print quality as standard inks, these specialised inks are a superior alternative. They are designed to prevent molecular migration into food or medicine through plastic packaging, unlike standard inks, which can leach carcinogens into your food or medicine.
