Quality and Environment

From the outset, CESVIMAP decided to focus on quality in the areas of research, dissemination, workshop services and training, carrying out all its activities with the utmost respect for the environment and its protection.

For this reason, in 2001, CESVIMAP’s management decided to promote the implementation of a Quality Management System and to certify the training activities carried out at its facilities in Avila, located at Calle Jorge de Santayana, 18.

This certification, in accordance with the ISO 9001 standard, is recognition of CESVIMAP’s creative ability to adapt to customer needs and develop ad hoc training offers in the automotive field, an ability based on its own knowledge and methods, extracted from our experimental work; on this basis, CESVIMAP organises everything necessary to carry out this training and monitors its development and results; the aim is to continuously improve its training capacity and satisfy the increasingly demanding requirements of its customers.

One year later, CESVIMAP certified its Environmental Management System according to the ISO 14001 standard, in this same centre; it meant the recognition of CESVIMAP’s action in compliance with the legal requirements that apply to it and the environmental commitments that are established each year, within the framework of its commitment to pollution prevention and environmental protection.
