The growth achieved by IMPER ITALY from its foundation (1930s) to the current 21st century is the most tangible proof of the recognition obtained from the market. However, there are several tiles forming the mosaic of success, including the approvals and product and system certifications issued by Official Institutes.
First of all, the System Certifications
Since 1995, IMPER ITALIA is ISO 9001-certified by BUREAU VERITAS. Indeed, the Company is committed to optimising its processes, so as to ensure management based on efficiency, effectiveness and low costs. This is why it also has a safety management system in compliance with the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 standard, focusing on its continual improvement. In September 2006, IMPER ITALIA achieved the CE product certification in compliance with European directive 89/106/EEC relating to construction products. In 2012 the Company achieved the ISO EN 14001 certification relating to Environmental Management. But even more outstanding are the Approvals and Product certifications issued by the Official Institutes of the UEAtc (Union Européenne pour l’Agrément Technique dans la construction) of some European countries:
Additional certifications of other Institutes of overseas countries (USA, New Zealand, Japan) have also been achieved, thus affirming the high ranking on the market for the quality of its products. Other awards/approvals have been issued over time by national companies (ENEL, FFSS, Società Autostrade, etc.) and various Institutes. Therefore, authoritative acknowledgement and awards highlight the success on the market, confirming that the company is heading in the right direction, towards a continual, solid and constant development. SINTOFOIL technopolymers are formulated to ensure a “service life of over 30 YEARS”, as recently certified by UK Institute BBA (British Board of Agrément) following strict checks on construction sites carried out in the past and subsequent laboratory counter-analyses.
Moreover, IMPER ITALIA was the first company to achieve the ATE certification for the homogeneous polyolefin-based (TPO/FPA) SINTOFOIL ST and for UNOFIX E, a double-layer distilled bitumen polymer system (for mechanical fixing applications).
