Process assessments often lead to certification according to DIN ISO, in order to make them controllable and manageable later on. Furthermore, management and thus the entire organisation / company commit themselves to ensuring continuous implementation of the processes / workflows that they have imposed on themselves. Agitaris GmbH supports you during the implementation of processes / workflows up until certification has been achieved and guarantees success with regard to the certification audit.

ISO 9'001

ISO 9001 describes the requirements for implementing a quality management system. The requirements are formulated in a general manner, in order to ensure they can be used for companies / organisations / institutions in all sectors.

ISO 9001 describes the requirements, it doesn’t prescribe regulations. These requirements describe what needs to be fulfilled, but not how a specific company can achieve this. It provides a reliable and tried-and-tested framework for aligning an organisation’s processes with its objectives.
ISO 9001 focuses on the effect of the activities within the organisation. It’s not about writing comprehensive documentation.
The ISO 9001 standard is the most widely used management system in the world, and more than 1 million organisations are certified at the moment. In Switzerland there are approx. 15,000 certified companies, which amounts to around 5% of the overall number.

The ISO 9001 family of standards consists of 3 parts:

  • ISO 9000:2005 – basics and terms
  • ISO 9001:2008 - requirements (= basis for certification)
  • ISO 9004:2009 - sustainable success for an organisation

The ISO 9000 family of standards also includes other standards.

ISO 14'001

Environmental protection is an integral part of our legal system and should be incorporated into every corporate strategy. Operational environmental protection can provide a great deal of savings potential, above all in relation to resource consumption and external environmental costs.

Environmental management refers to the systematic and continuous planning and implementation of environmental measures with the objective of reducing the effects on the environment caused by corporate activities and products – while ensuring compliance with relevant environmental regulations and observing the specific situation of the company and the economic viability of its measures.
The ISO 14001 standard is divided up into the sections Environmental Policy, Planning, Implementation and Operation, Checking and Management Review.
It must be noted that this standard can generally be used by any organisation, either on its own or together with other standards (e.g. ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001, etc.) for the purpose of certification.


  • Savings potential - for example, resource consumption is easier to identify, which means cost advantages vis-à- vis competitors can be achieved
  • Thanks to controlled processes, the risk of incidents and the effects thereof can be minimised. This, in turn, can lead to premium reductions and advantages when applying for loans
  • You are provided with security in relation to compliance with environmental regulations, which also reduces the risk of legal consequences and liability issues
  • The continuous improvement process CIP is promoted in all areas
  • Approval processes can be speeded up
  • Certified companies generally belong to the group of preferred providers
  • Employees are also motivated and identification with the company is improved

OHSAS 18'001

Certification of occupational health and safety

Occupational health and safety are important topics in any corporate culture that is geared towards sustainable success. OHSAS 18001 defines globally valid criteria for appropriately optimised management systems. Companies that can prove compliance with the requirements gain trust and strengthen their image.

OHSAS 18001 improves the safety culture, raises productivity (fewer absences) and increases the attractiveness of the employer.

OHSAS 18001 can be used together with ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management) to form an integrated management system.

ISO 22'000

The international standard for all companies that want to be integrated into the food supply chain in one way or another: from "the stable to the table", from primary production to preparation, incl. packaging, transport, storage, veterinary medication for livestock, services in the food supply chain, etc...

ISO 22000 is a standard that covers the entire food supply chain. It is based on recommendations from the Codex Alimantarius for setting up a HACCP system. This includes setting up prevention programmes (prerequisite programmes). In doing so, ISO 22000 differentiates between operative prevention programmes, which have an effect similar to a CCP, and "common" prevention programmes, which ensure good manufacturing processes. To ensure certification according to ISO 22000 is recognised by a number of larger wholesale distributors, the prevention programmes need to be reviewed in accordance with PAS 220 (publicly available specification), which is issued by the BSI.

All stakeholders in the food supply chain (from stable to table) can obtain certification in accordance with ISO 22000:2005. Above all, companies that sell food, but do not treat or process it, and those that manufacturer or supply products for the food industry (medication, packaging, services, etc.) as well as catering and gastronomy companies can be certified in accordance with this standard.
