On October 22 and 23, 2019, auditors from TÜV Rheinland conducted a two-day annual surveillance audit of Drill-Lab's IMS (Integrated Management System), which is based on three standards, i.e. ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
During the first day of the audit, the team of auditors, accompanied by Drill-Lab's internal auditors and the company's Operations Manager, inspected one of Drill-Lab's mudlogging units (MME - on-site monitoring and measurement equipment) and examined the work of the company's team of geologists (MMEs operators) working at the time on one of the field projects in West Pomeranian.
On the second day, the experts from TÜV Rheinland, accompanied by Drill-Lab's internal auditors, carefully checked rhe company's headquarter in Zielona Góra, referring to the documents and records, questioning some of Drill-Lab's staff and inspecting their work.
During the same day's closing meeting, the TÜV Rheinland experts informed us that there were no non-conformances noted during the audit and their recommendation to TÜV Rheinland will be to maintain the certification of Drill-Lab's IMS based on the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards. The TÜV Rheinland auditors proposed some improvements to the Drill-Lab's system.
On November 21, 2019, a TÜV Rheinland representative sent us an official statement saying that Drill-Lab's Integrated Management System complies with the requirements of the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards, and that the validity of Drill-Lab's certificate is maintained.
