At the end of last year, Zaporizhzhia Coke Plant of Metinvest Group successfully passed the supervisory audits of its integrated management system for compliance with international quality, environmental, occupational health and safety, and energy management standards.
High quality of products, energy saving, labor protection and compliance with environmental regulations were among the main principles even in peacetime. Today, when the full-scale war is raging in Ukraine, there are acute problems with energy and raw material supplies and constant threats of missile attacks, these components are becoming the main ones in the company's "survival" issues. Zaporizhcoke is also guided by these postulates.
At the end of last year, Zaporozhcoke successfully passed the supervisory audits of its integrated management system for compliance with the requirements of international standards, such as ISO 9001:2015 (quality management), ISO 45001:2018 (occupational health and safety), ISO 50001:2018 (energy management) and ISO 14001:2015 (environment management).
Auditors of Technical and Management Services and TUV AVSTRIA corporate partner conducted audits of the plant's business units for compliance with the requirements of international management system standards. The audits were conducted in all plant's business units, including coal preparation shop, coke shop, desulphurization, recovery shop and other shops.

Based on the results of the audits, Zaporozhcoke was recommended to renew its certificates of compliance with quality, health and safety, energy and environmental management standards.
