Who is the ISO and what are ‘ISOs’?
ISO stands for the International Standardization Organisation.
The ISO is responsible for setting International Standards to ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality.
To achieve an ‘ISO’ standard a company needs to prove that their management systems and quality control is fit for purpose, complies with International and national laws and regulations, and is committed to continually improving its processes for its customers.
This level of certification requires a business to pass an initial series of thorough inspections and will also be subject to regular spot checks.
What we have achieved for you
Here at CAS we are very proud of the level of ISO certification we have achieved. It means that all of our clients will know that they are in the safest of hands when it comes to entrusting us with their important records and files.
We have broken down our ISO standards into plain English, so that you can understand what they mean to you as one of our valued clients and how this impacts on the services we provide for you.
ISO 9001, Quality Management
This ISO means that as a company, we do things properly. We consistently strive to understand and assess the requirements of our customers and we build upon our management systems for the services we provide.
A recent example of our commitment to improving management systems is the introduction of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). This is a new electronic system which provides new levels of accuracy and efficiency far beyond standard barcode management. This means 99.9% accuracy of locating your documents and providing you with accurate audit reports.
We have also become a member of the Archives and records association.

ISO 14001, Environmental management
As a responsible company, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. ISO 14001 shows that we have consistently met management processes that reduce our impact on the environment and contribute to sustainability on both a regional and national level.
One example of our responsible management process is that we recycle 100% of our shredding waste. We also ensure our vehicles are run on low emission gas and we also help and advise our clients on their management systems for reducing their impact on the environment.
