Certifications & Recommendations
Setting Industry Standards with Triple ISO Certifications and NFPA Recognition
In our pursuit of the highest standards and best business practices, SERGI Transformer Protector has achieved significant certifications and accreditations. SGS, one of the world’s leading audit and certification firms, has awarded us three distinct ISO certifications: ISO 9001 for Quality Management, ISO 45001 for Occupational Health and Safety, and ISO 14001 for Environmental Management. ISO 9001 ensures that our processes meet customer requirements, signifying our commitment to quality. ISO 45001 demonstrates our dedication to employee health and safety, while ISO 14001 reflects our environmental impact management and commitment to sustainability.
ISO 9001 specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). A QMS is a set of processes and procedures that we put in place to ensure that our products and services meet the needs of our customers. It demonstrates to them, to suppliers, and other stakeholders that SERGI Transformer Protector is committed to quality.
ISO 45001 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system. An OH&S management system is a set of processes and procedures that we put in place to protect the health and safety of our employees. It demonstrates to them, to customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders that we are committed to the health and safety of our staff.
ISO 14001 specifies requirements for an environmental management system (EMS). An EMS is a set of processes and procedures that SERGI Transformer Protector puts in place to manage its environmental impact. It demonstrates to customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders that the company is committed to environmental protection. The certification can also help the company to improve its efficiency and reduce its environmental impact.
Additionally, SERGI Transformer Protector is accredited by Bureau Veritas for the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), reinforcing our commitment to compliance and high standards. Furthermore, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), an authority in fire prevention practices, updated its Recommendations 850 in 2010 to include the Fast Depressurization System. Our TRANSFORMER PROTECTOR (TP) fully complies with all four NFPA criteria, highlighting our unwavering commitment to safety and quality across all operational aspects.
The NFPA Recommendations 850 include “Recommended Practice for Fire Protection for Electric Generating Plants and High Voltage Direct Current Converter Stations” and define four criteria for Fast Depressurization Systems, all of which are met by the TRANSFORMER PROTECTOR (TP):
- “Passive mechanical system”
- “Depressurizes the transformer a few milliseconds after the occurrence of an electrical fault”
- “Triggered by the dynamic pressure peak generated by the short circuit”
- “Activates within milliseconds before static pressure increases.”
