Certificates

Quality is of paramount importance at Royal Sens. Our clients can rely on it. The highest standards of quality, hygiene, working conditions and safety hold no secrets for our people. This is evidenced by the certificates we have been awarded by independent certifying bodies and which we are tested on every year.
We are also aware of the world we live in. Royal Sens uses sustainable raw materials as much as possible and reuses materials wherever possible.

Royal has the following certificates:

ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001:2015 is an international standard for quality management. With the quality management system, we describe our most important processes and implement them. This ensures that every employee works in the same way, which increases the reliability and quality of our products. By identifying opportunities and threats for the organisation, we strive for continuous improvement. With an ISO 9001:2015 certification, we demonstrate that our organisation meets the requirements of our customers, the legislative and regulatory requirements for our products and our own requirements.

BRC Packaging Materials

All of our production sites hold the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) recognised BRC Global Standard for Packaging & Packaging Materials certificate. This certificate is designed to protect consumers by specifying product safety, quality and operational criteria for companies that supply packaging to food producers. The standards for this certificate are regularly updated to always reflect the latest findings in product safety. This important certification is recognised by many brand owners, food service companies and manufacturers around the world who want to assess the capabilities of their packaging producer. For 2021, we have again been awarded the highest AA status.

FSC®

As part of our corporate social responsibility, we encourage our customers to print their labels on sustainable paper. This has led to more than 90% of the paper labels being printed on FSC®-certified paper. FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council, and is an international organisation committed to conservation and responsible forest management worldwide. FSC speaks of responsible forest management when the ecological, social and economic aspects of forest management are taken into account in a balanced way. All our paper suppliers are in possession of a sustainable FSC® certificate.

DPG

In Germany, there is a deposit scheme for certain packaging with the aim of reducing litter and landfill waste. The Deutsche Pfandsystem GmbH (DPG) was created for this purpose. The safety aspect of this system ensures that a DPG-certified ink producer only sells these inks to DPG-certified printers. This certificate is issued by testing the correct use of these inks. Royal Sens has been in possession of this certificate since 2010. Printed matter with the DPG logo must be treated by as security printing.

EcoVadis

Royal Sens is part of the cooperation platform of EcoVadis. Due to the complexity of regulations and the rapid evolution of environmental and social standards, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) assessments are too difficult to handle internally. With a Self Audit Questionaire of EcoVadis, a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) assessment is carried out and rated by CSR experts. Royal Sens has a Silver Rating.

Sedex

Royal Sens is a member of Sedex and thus offers insight into its ethical entrepreneurship with a commitment to full transparency within the supply chain. The audit takes place via a Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), the results of which can be requested by all companies registered with Sedex.
