Quality-Environment-Occupational Safety integrated management system

The activities in the important areas of the environment and occupational safety, which are crucial in Terna’s view of sustainability, are coordinated and guided by its ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001-certifed Quality-Environment-Occupational Safety Integrated management system. Compliance with certification requirements demonstrates Terna’s ongoing search for improvement, which ensures consistency with the commitments expressed in the Code of Ethics and in the Company’s policies. The integrated system covers 100% of Terna’s activities, both those carried out on existing infrastructures and those regarding the planning, design, and construction of new plants. In 2010, following inspections performed by the IMQ certification body on the Quality-Environment-Occupational Safety management systems, Terna’s UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 - UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 - and BS OHSAS 18001:2007 certifications were renewed for the three-year period 2011-2013, with the consequent issuance of the new certificates. In 2011, the certification bodies issued their annual confirmation.

On September 14, 2011 Terna also obtained the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification for TIMM applications (Integrated Text for Monitoring the Electricity Market), with reference to the Operational Unit of the Rome Headoffice that is in charge of this.

The ISO 27001:2005 standard is an international rule that determines the requirements for the Information Security Management System (in Italian SGSI) for physical, logical and organizational safety (Information Security Management System-ISMS) and is in line with Terna’s approach to the ISO 9001 Quality System and Risk Management.
