ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System
At Louisenthal, our customers have been at the heart of everything we do for over 200 years. That’s why we ensure all our processes and procedures meet ISO 9001 requirements. Certification is performed annually by the TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH certification authority at both our sites in Louisenthal and Königstein.
ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Protection Management System
Both our plants in Louisenthal and Königstein are set in beautiful natural surroundings – so it’s no wonder we’re very committed to environmental protection and sustainable production processes. All environment-related processes are audited regularly in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard.
We have also established an environmental management system to ensure ongoing compliance with this standard. Throughout the company, all of our employees actively work to avoid waste and processes or activities with a negative ecological impact.
OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System
Our staff is one of our biggest assets, so we work hard to ensure our employees’ health and safety in our facilities, together with that of visitors like customers, business partners and others. In fact, this is an essential component of company policy at Louisenthal.
We integrated an OHSAS 18001-compliant occupational health and safety management system into our existing management systems and have kept it certified since 2009.
Each employee contributes to the ongoing improvement of occupational health and safety by working towards relevant goals, which are regularly assessed and supported with preventive actions.
Customs: Authorized Economic Operator (AEO)
Within the European Union, the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) concept permits numerous custom duty simplifications. Louisenthal obtained its certificate in 2011 following an examination of its compliance with comprehensive requirements regarding reliability, solvency, previous adherence to relevant legal regulations, and safety standards. An AEO certification also proves that our supply chain processes are efficient and that we are in a position to supply customers reliably and smoothly.
German Federal Aviation Office: Known Consignor
When shipping air freight, EU law requires numerous safety checks at airports and these can be time-consuming as well as costly. The Known Consignor certificate, issued by Germany’s Federal Aviation Office, obviates the need for time-consuming checks on our goods. The certificate requires the creation of a comprehensive safety program for air freight and an onsite audit by the Federal Aviation Office at all production sites. Louisenthal was one of the first German companies to receive this certificate at the end of 2011.
ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management System
As a manufacturer of paper, foils, and threads, Louisenthal is an energy-intensive operation. And energy costs are rising dramatically. That’s why we have implemented a centralized energy management system that has improved our energy balance and reduced consumption. We comply with all applicable parameters in the ISO 50001:2011 standard.
The production and distribution of passport and security papers by Louisenthal are certified by the FSC®. The FSC-certified wood raw materials used are demonstrably produced in accordance with high ecological and social standards.
