Doha, Qatar: Manateq, the company working to diversify Qatar’s economy by providing premium infrastructure within strategic economic zones, has obtained the Integrated Management System (IMS) Certification, combining its certification to the world’s three most prevalent ISO Standards (ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018) under a single framework.
The milestone certification follows an intensive third party audit of Manateq’s Integrated Management System by the internationally recognized certification body TUV Nord Gulf Qatar. The audit complimented Manateq’s distinctive approach to structuring its QHSE Policy, adopting business and organizational excellence focused on outcomes, performance, practice, structure, and system (OPPSS). Manateq’s IMS has become the top-level framework that integrates governance into its processes.
“Achieving this certification is not the beginning or the end of our journey, but a demonstration of Manateq’s strategic direction to maintain and sustain a robust integrated management system that manages risks and opportunities, while striving to achieve its stated business outcomes,” explained Manateq CEO, Fahad Rashid Al-Kaabi. “This gives all our partners, investors, contractors, external providers, and other stakeholders, including SMEs, a guarantee of a sustainable and safe business journey with Manateq. Additionally, it will further lift their confidence in our ability to create a world-class business environment that enables domestic and foreign investors to deliver value added products and services to local, regional and international markets.”
Al Kaabi added that the certification also underlines Manateq’s ability to sustain business continuity in a challenging environment.
“We have successfully fulfilled all QHSE Management Systems requirements despite the challenges of the current global COVID-19 pandemic crisis. In the span of just 12 months, and in line with our business plan, we have effectively deployed a newly developed IMS framework without resorting to any external consultancy services,” he highlighted.
Manateq’s in-house resources delivered the required internal audit, gap analysis, documentation, implementation, internal audits, certification, and sustainability requirements.
The TUV Nord Gulf Qatar audit complimented Manateq’s executive management for supporting the certification process and demonstrating commitment to delivering high quality client services and praised the company’s IMS internal audit process as ‘Best Practice’ for its detailed findings reflecting actual activities and areas for business process improvement.
“Manateq believes that the key to effective IMS governance is through visible leadership and engagement of its employees and stakeholders”. The executive management understands and realizes the importance of integrated processes in consistently achieving the highest level of quality services to its clients while maintaining the safe systems of work and protecting the environment within the areas of their control. IMS Implementation within the scope of its certification has achieved a score of 85% integration for both the system and functional processes.
Manateq’s IMS Journey began in Q1 2019 when its EMS – Environmental Management System (ISO 14001:2015) was integrated with its Occupational Health and Safety Management System (ISO 45001:2018). Its Quality Management System portfolio (ISO 9001:2015) became part of the Integrated Management Systems in Q4 2019.
