Royal Dutch Shell Group .com News: Brunei Shell Refinery Achieves Another First: Friday 26 August 2005


Bandar Seri Begawan - One of the missions of the Brunei Shell Refinery is to operate the (Refinery) Plant safely and reliably whilst protecting the health of the people and preserving the environment.


On this note, the management and staff of Brunei Shell Refinery has taken another leading role towards achieving this mission.


A press release from External Affairs, Brunei LNG Sdn Bhd yesterday stated that "the Refinery embarked on the journey to upgrade the Refinery Environmental Management system to the new ISO 14001:2004". The Refinery had earlier been certified to the ; previous IS014001:1996 Environmental Management System in April 2000, which in itself was a first in the country.


Organisations that are certified to the previous IS014001:1996 are given until June 2006 to upgrade to the new requirements.


The upgrade for the Refinery involves some meticulous planning to update all the necessary Quality documents and also to increase staff awareness and understanding of the new requirements through staff awareness training, engagement sessions, road shows and environmental management quizzes.


The upgrade audit was conducted on July 22, 2005 by Bureau Veritas (Brunei) who flew in an environmental management expert to conduct the audit.


The Refinery was very proud to be among the first to be recommended by BV for the certification of the new ISO 14001:2004. The certificates were issued on August 15.  -- Courtesy of Borneo Bulletin
