MGG’s integrated Quality Management System

With the integration of MGG Polymers as fully owned subsidiary, the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group decided to integrate the Quality and Environmental Management System of the Austrian MGG companies.

The MGG Quality and Environmental Manager Philipp Felber, formerly Manager QM at MGG Polymers, got the task of the integration of these management systems and the first integrated audit took place at the end of 2017. An audit is a systematic evidence gathering process. The audits of MGG’s systems and processes involve periodic verifications to verify that a documented Quality and Environmental Management System and Recycling Processes have been effectively implemented. The Müller-Guttenbrunn Group is working with the internationally recognized Bureau Veritas Group as auditors.

An MGG audit team was created with representatives of the 4 MGG companies involved and Bureau Veritas, the Auditors of the Müller-Guttenbrunn Group in Austria was asked to do a complete re-certification of these companies as integrated group. This certification is important as it represents assurance by an independent accredited body of conformity to specific requirements.

The certification was performed on 4 areas:

  • ISO 9001 – 2015
  • ISO 14001 – 2015
  • Cenelec EN 50625 for the treatment of WEEE (large and small appliances)
  • Cenelec EN 50625 for the treatment of Flat Panel Displays – a new activity of MGG

The end-result was positive and the audit was completed with good results.

The Certificates can be found here.

The team was congratulated by CEO Christian Müller-Guttenbrunn:“Compliance is the key to success for our activities as an important player in the environmental service branch. This audit shows that we are a truly integrated recycling company with an unprecedented recycling depth – from the first treatment to the end of the waste status. I am proud that we were able to carry out this integrated audit only a few months.”

After completing these important re-certification audits for the integrated group of companies, Philipp Felber (on the right hand side of this picture) was asked to join the MGG Holding as Quality and Environmental Manager. He joined MGG on February 1st 2018.

We wish Philipp all the best in this new function.
