ISO 31000 is a globally recognised standard which helps organisations to manage risk more effectively, boosting Health & Safety performance and minimising risk.

After an intensive five-day assessment, for which extensive evidence was required regarding Copart’s risk mitigation processes for all areas of the business, the accreditation was awarded no further actions required. 

As part of the assessment, Copart was audited on their corporate risk registers, risk assessments for all operational processes and their training programmes.

This new accreditation comes only weeks after they were awarded ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Management standards.

Stephanie Barnard, Head of Performance Management, Quality & Audit, said:

“This has been a perfect opportunity for Copart to demonstrate the robust processes we have in place to proactively identify risk and protect our customers’ assets. It’s just another example of Copart’s commitment to continuous improvement across the whole business and this suite of ISO accreditations underpins the high-quality, seamless service our customers can expect to receive.”

Jane Pocock, UK Managing Director said: 

“Investment in these standards provides independent validation and reassurance to our customers that we will protect their assets at all times. I’m delighted we have achieved this trio of ISO accreditations, as it illustrates the market-leading standards at which we operate. We believe Copart are the only company within our industry to hold all three.”
