Accredited Quality Management

All our Prison Industries sites have gained accreditation to ISO 9001:2008 for their quality management systems.

This means that the sites have demonstrated their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet both customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

Selected sites have gained ISO 4801: 2001 for their occupational health, safety and welfare system.

Additionally our catering and baking operations are HACCP certified.

We are good corporate citizens

The work the prisoners do must not compete with or endanger a local supplier.

We will not undertake a contract if:

  • there is likely competition from a local market or local supplier or
  • there is the possibility that job losses could occur in the local community.

We will not enter into partnerships with companies experiencing hardship or financial difficulties.
