IMS Overview This document is UNCONTROLLED unless viewed on TCS Intranet TCS have developed, documented and maintain an integrated management system(IMS) designed to ensure we continue to supply high quality products and services to our customers while providing a safe, healthy workplace for our employees and acting as a responsible member of our community. The TCS company's IMS is designed to help us understand our environmental impacts and, through proactive management, reduce the risks that our productive operations pose to our employees and to the environment. The IMS is also the means through which the commitments expressed in our policy document are implemented. The IMS covers all operations occurring on-site at our Leeds factory, from the point of entry of raw materials and energy, to the point of exit of finished manufactured products. In addition to manufacturing processes and activities, all off-site operations fall within the scope of the IMS, including delivery, erection and installation, and maintenance. The IMS takes waste disposal into account in evaluating the environmental impacts of both on-site and off-site activities, even though TCS may not ultimately be the final disposer of the waste. The IMS is organised and structured such that technical/administrative and human factors affecting the quality of products and services are controlled. The IMS demonstrates objective evidence of the attainment and maintenance of quality, ensuring customer confidence in the company's ability to deliver the desired quality. Additional evidence is provided by independent third party assessment of conformance of the quality system to the requirements of BSEN ISO9001:2008. IMS Operational Procedures (OP's) The IMS is defined in operational procedures (OP's) which are structured by either department operations or company wide operations. Each procedure details actions and requirements to be achieved in IMS objectives. A OP number uniquely identifies each operational procedure. In addition work instructions ('WI' series) and inspection procedures ('IP' series), which are detailed instructions of process or inspection activities, are used where necessary in supporting operational procedures and product quality. All documented records, which are used to verify product quality and the achievement of the IMS are allocated a unique, number (IMSD No.'s) for control of identification and referencing. Verification Resources and Personnel Verification requirements, I.e. Inspections, product and IMS audits, are identified by TCS Limited. Adequate financial and physical resources in terms of plant and equipment are provided, together with the necessary training of specified personnel for verification purposes. Management Representative Technical Control Systems Ltd. has appointed the Technical Director as the company representative with the responsibility and authority to ensure the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001, BS EN ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001, are implemented and maintained. In addition he has direct responsibility for inspection and testing, and control of all inspection, test and measuring instrumentation. IMS Issue All sections of the Integrated Management System are approved and authorized by qualified personnel and checked by the management representative prior to issue. Operational procedures, Work instructions and Inspection procedures are installed on the company's intranet and are available to personnel with responsibility for ensuring adherence to them and to personnel for information/reference purposes. All updates to the IMS are controlled using the document control procedure - OP113. Issues to third parties external to the company or issues downloaded from the company's website are identified as 'Uncontrolled'.
