Having first been awarded accreditation against ISO Standards in 2015, the company was recently re-certified following an audit which saw Galaxy successfully re-awarded a further year’s certification against ISO 9001 Quality Management and ISO 14001 Environmental Management; as well as the BSEN 15713 Secure Destruction Standard.
Galaxy complies with BSEN 15713 standard of secure destruction, offering business customers an onsite data destruction service. The standard outlines the security risks of collecting, transporting and destroying confidential information, and defines the regulatory requirements a destruction service must adhere to in order to achieve compliance with international security standards.
ISO 9001 is a nationally recognised Quality Management Standard, which requires business commitment to providing consistent services and products which meet industry requirements and customer needs; and aims to enhance customer satisfaction.
Managing Director Stuart Moseley was delighted with the results of the audit, stating that, “The staff at Galaxy work hard to demonstrate best practice. The ISO Accreditation is not just a reward for us, however; it provides a guarantee of quality, and value for money, for our customers.”
Although the company deal in data destruction; it does so in an environmentally sound and sustainable way. Galaxy Computer Brokers merged with the Guernsey Recycling Group in January 2016. Eco -friendly practices, and sustainability, remains a primary objective.
“Galaxy has a 0% landfill policy: we aim to re-use or recycle all the computer hardware we process. We can either re-use complete systems or component parts; or recycle parts to recover the precious metals and materials they contain,” says Stuart.
These efforts have earned the company’s renewed accreditation against the ISO 14001 Environmental Management standard.
