SOCIAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS: BUREAU VERITAS ITALIA GETS PAS 24000 ACCREDITATION

Bureau Veritas Italia has obtained Accredia accreditation for issuing certifications according to the PAS 24000:2022 standard for social management systems. This system focuses on the social impact of the organization, aiming to promote positive changes in society or enhance the quality of life for people.

With this new accreditation, Bureau Veritas Italia expands its range of accredited services on social issues, which include occupational health and safety (ISO 45001), gender equality (UNI/PdR 125:2022) and now also the new standard on social management systems (PAS 24000:2022), leveraging a solid twenty-year experience with SA8000.

This wide offering perfectly integrates with other non-certifiable standards, such as ISO 20400 on responsible sourcing, ISO 30415 on DE&I and the recent UNI/PdR 159:2024 on Inclusive Employment of People with Disabilities.

We recommend linking these standards in an advanced and comprehensive framework on social issues, involving also the supply chain.

PAS 24000 is the first standard for social management systems accredited by Accredia. It can be easily integrated with other management systems and audits. Accredia is a member of mutual recognition agreements (EA and IAF), offering a mature and reliable approach in the definition of accreditation rules and relations with certification bodies.
