The integrated Quality, Environment and Occupational Safety management system

The activities in the delicate fields of environment and occupational safety, which are crucial to Terna's vision of sustainability, are coordinated and directed in the integrated Quality, Environment and Occupational Safety management system, which has obtained ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification. Compliance with these certification requirements testifies to the search for continual improvement, which guarantees consistency with the commitments expressed in the Code of Ethics and in the corporate policies. The integrated system covers 100% of Terna's activities, both those carried out on the existing plants, and those to plan, design and construct new plants, excluding solely those of the company Terna Crna Gora, for which processes will be certified during 2013. In 2010, after the inspections carried out by the IMQ certification body on the Quality, Environment and Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, Terna received renewal for the three years 2011-2013 of the UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 – UNI EN ISO 14001:2004 – BS OHSAS 18001:2007 certifications with the consequent issue of new certificates. During 2012 the certification bodies confirmed annual renewal.

In June 2012 Terna confirmed its ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certification (obtained in 2011) of the TIMM (Testo Integrato per il Monitoraggio del Mercato Elettrico - Integrated Rules for Electricity Market Monitoring) applications.

ISO 27001:2005 is an international standard which provides the requisites for an Information Security Management System (ISMS) for the aspects of physical, logical and organizational security and is consistent with the approach of the ISO 9001 Quality System and of Terna's Risk Management System (see also 2010 Sustainability Report).

In addition, again in  2012, the "Initial Energy Analysis" was performed and the “Energy Consumed for Own Use Management System” defined, with the aim of aligning the system to the UNI CEI EN ISO 50001 standard in accordance with the “Environmental Management System”. In this context energy analyses were carried out at the offices in: Via Galbani and Via Palmiano in Rome, Pero and San Rocco al Porto in the Province of Milan, and at the Palermo office.

UNI CEI EN ISO 50001: 2011 “Energy Management Systems” is a standard which lays down the requirements for creating, introducing, maintaining, and improving an energy management system oriented towards energy efficiency.
