ISO Compliance

ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organisation.

Needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product/ services that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. ETL is on route to becoming ISO 9001:2015 certified. The certification process will take 6 months to achieve.

The process toward certification will require that an ISO 9001:2015 compliant system be up and running. ETL clients are therefore immediately assured of the conformity of the products/ services of ETL. A continuous improvement system ensures that ETL is striving for enhanced methods to streamline productivity and quality.

The ISO 9001:2015 system also requires that all competencies claimed by ETL staff are verified, thereby ensuring that clients receive the services they have been promised and will be delivered by qualified practising professionals.
Corporate Governance

The dawn of democracy in South Africa in 1994 sought to achieve growth which among other key aspects, could fund expanded social services and increased employment. At ETL we realise that to attain higher growth, South Africa will need to increase the mobilisation of both domestic and foreign capital, as well as use that capital more efficiently. Seen in this light, good corporate governance impacts both on stability and growth prospects. Corporate governance in private limited companies is an often-ignored topic as it is not mandatory by law.

At ETL we approach Corporate Governance differently. Corporate Governance encompasses much more than shareholder rights. Corporate governance includes rights of investors, financial institutions, customers, suppliers, employees and society.

To this end, ETL applies the following principles underlying the King III report on Corporate Governance:

  • Ethical leadership and corporate citizenship
  • Efficient functioning of the Board
  • Establishment of audit, finance, risk and remuneration committees
  • The governance of risk
  • The appropriate use of information technology
  • Compliance with the laws, codes, rules and standards
  • Conducting internal audits
  • Governing stakeholder relationships
  • Integrated reporting and disclosure
