Copart achieves ISO Super Six f

ISO 22301 is a globally recognised standard which is designed to help businesses prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from, unexpected and disruptive incidents and threats.

After an intensive three-day assessment, in which Copart was required to provide evidence of a robust and effective business continuity plan for all areas of the business, the accreditation was awarded with no further actions required. 

As part of the assessment, Copart were audited on their ability to recognise potential risks and have the necessary framework in place to continue their operations, involving comprehensive business impact assessments for all areas of the organisation.  

Stephanie Barnard, Director of Performance, Quality & Risk, said:  

“This has been a perfect opportunity for Copart to demonstrate to our customers and stakeholders that we have a strong business continuity plan in place to rapidly overcome any operational disruptions, which is very timely due to the current pandemic.  

It’s been a great opportunity to revisit and revise our business continuity processes in line with the challenges of COVID-19, strengthening our already robust emergency response strategy and  underpinning the high-quality, seamless service our customers can expect to receive.” 

This new accreditation brings the total of ISO standards held by Copart to six. The business already holds the following standards: 

  • ISO 9001 Quality Management System
  • ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Management
  • ISO 31000 Risk Management
  • ISO 14001 Environmental Management
  • ISO 27001 Information Security

Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland, said:

“I’m delighted that we have achieved a ‘Super Six’ portfolio of ISO accreditations, which is incredibly unique for a company within the automotive industry and demonstrates the market-leading standards at which we operate. 

“We already have a well-established emergency response strategy in place which, alongside our extensive UK operational capacity and cutting-edge mobile technology, has allowed us to continue operating safely throughout the current pandemic.  

“The independent validation of an ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Standard provides our  customers with even more confidence in our resilience, and reassurance that we will continue to  operate effectively on their behalf.”
