ISO 14001 and 9001 certification

ISO 14001 and 9001

Mannington's Environmental Management Systems (EMS) was originally third party certified to ISO 14001 in:

  • 2004 - Commercial Inlaid sheet operations located in New Jersey
  • 2005 - Carpet operation in Georgia
  • 2009 - Commercial and Residential Cushion sheet operations in New Jersey
  • 2012 - LVT operations in Georgia
  • 2020 - Rigid Core and Rubber operations in Georgia

Each facility has successfully completed all annual recertification and surveillance audits.


Our Quality Management System (QMS) has been third party certified to ISO 9001 in our New Jersey Inlaid sheet operation since 2004 and in our Georgia LVT operations since 2012.   Each facility has successfully completed all annual recertification and surveillance audits. The result is a highly organized and structured approach that ensures the efficient, effective management and continual improvement of our environmental and quality systems.  


As required by the ISO standards, rigorous system verification was conducted by our third party registrar. The New Jersey location was most recently audited in August, 2020; Georgia carpet/rigid core/rubber location in July, 2020; and Georgia LVT location in December, 2020.  

 

Examples of the most recent findings from the third party registrar, NSF, are:

  • Carpet/Rigid Core/Rubber, Calhoun, GA – 2020 Zero Deficiencies for ISO 14001.
  • Inlaid, Salem, NJ – 2020 Zero deficiencies for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
  • Cushion Sheet, Salem, NJ – 2020 Zero Deficiencies for ISO 14001.

Examples of the most recent findings from the third party registrar, BSI, are:

LVT, Madison, GA – 2020 One minor deficiency for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 as follows:

ISO 9001

  • Incomplete supplier evaluation.
ISO 14001
  • Unlabeled secondary containers.

      In our ISO 14001 EMS, we evaluate the significant environmental aspects and impacts of our activities, products, and services at least annually and establish specific objectives and targets for continual improvement.
