SQAS (Safety & Quality Assessment for Sustainability) is used to evaluate the quality, safety, security, environmental and CSR-performance of Logistics Service Providers and Chemical Distributors.
Cefic, the European Chemical Industry Council, manages the system and ensures its success. The assessments are done by professional auditors who are trained and accredited by Cefic for each type of assessment. They are also closely monitored by Cefic to ensure a continuous high and uniform quality of work across Europe.
Quality is the key to success
DSV embraced the SQAS principles at least a decade ago. With the Quality Management System as a basis, additional safety, security and environmentally risk analyses were performed resulting in the first assessment in 2010. Based upon experience from other DSV entities, the first assessment and DSV’s attention to CSR related matters a mature safety environment is currently part of our day-to-day business ethics & operation.
