Tongaat Hulett subscribes to various management systems that are certified by third party certifying bodies with reputable accreditation in line with international standards. In this regard, annual targets have been set for third party audits and certifications associated with NOSA, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and HACCP/GMP. All operations in all countries are certified under the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System with the exception of Botswana, Namibia and Mafambisse, which are at different stages of the certification programme. Xinavane’s agriculture operation was recommended for certification to ISO 14001, while its mill operation was scheduled to go through Stage 2 of the certification audit in June 2013. Tongaat Hulett’s sugar and development operations were audited by NOSA on the integrated star rating system and are all certified. All four starch mill operations are certified as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 compliant. The Zimbabwe operations are NOSA and ISO 14001 certified, with Hippo Valley Estates having an additional OHSAS 18001 certification. The Swaziland operation is certified to ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and NOSA. Some of the starch and sugar operations have embarked on HACCP/ISO 22000 food safety assessments. Germiston and Kliprivier are HACCP/ISO 22 000 certified and the Maidstone Mill and the Refinery are partly certified. Plans are in place to pursue the ISO 14001 as well as HACCP/ISO 22 000 within the next five years.
