New ISO Standards

Be Modern Group Certified to New ISO Standards


Be Modern Group Ltd has been awarded the industry recognised ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System and ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System an impressive 18 months ahead of schedule.

The new ISO 90001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 take into account today’s dynamic and globally interconnected world. Some of the key changes include greater emphasis on management systems suited to the organisation’s needs, risk based thinking for continuous improvement and less prescriptive requirements for documentation giving the organisation flexibility.

In order to gain the accreditation, Be Modern sufficiently evidenced their commitment to risk based issues and the tasks they undertake to reduce these risks. The process involved demonstrating the resources required to ensure effective operations across each department and detailed analysis of the measures used to monitor the effectiveness of the business operations.

Based in Jarrow, Be Modern Group specialises in the manufacture of fires, fireplaces, stoves, bathroom and bedroom furniture in the UK; delivering an unrivalled product range, service quality and customer satisfaction for over 50 years. As one of the first fireplace manufacturers in the North East to achieve this status Be Modern are proud to lead the way.

Mark Hunter, Head of Marketing at Be Modern said “International Standards ensure our business operations are as efficient as possible and increase productivity. This in turn enhances customer satisfaction and reduces negative impacts on the environment, which is a key aspect of the Be Modern philosophy.”New ISO
