International Coatings Care commitment

SOPPEC was one of the leaders to introduce in France the Coatings Care international program in the 1990s. This program has now been implemented in more than ten countries such as Canada, Brazil, Japan, Australia, USA and France. 
Its signatories commit themselves to control the impacts of their activities on health, safety and the environment. All of them adhere to genuine ethics of responsibility.

QSE-certified management system

The QSE integrated management system is based on three certifications – ISO 9001 for Quality, ISO 14001 for the Environment and OHSAS 18001 for Health and Safety. In these three complementary fields, the SOPPEC approach is based on analyzing and preventing risks, on-going improvement of performances, compliance with regulatory requirements and customer satisfaction. The triple certification has been renewed successfully every three years since 2004.
