CNES ISO 9001 AND 14001 CERTIFICATION RENEWED NO NON-CONFORMANCES FOR FIFTH YEAR RUNNING

CNES’s Management System was audited with excellent results in October at its four centres of excellence at Paris Les Halles, Paris Daumesnil, the Toulouse Space Centre and the Guiana Space Centre. After its audit, certifying body AFNOR Certification confirmed the renewal of the agency’s ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental management certifications.

For the fifth year running, no non-conformances were noted, a remarkable achievement.

Among the many strong points highlighted by the audit were the buy-in of CNES’s teams to progress drives, its centres’ great resilience in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, its key role in the government’s economic stimulus plan and space economy observatory, the maturity of its environmental and CSR approach, and robust management of projects and operations.

This success is a testament to the high level of performance of our four centres of excellence and the result of the daily efforts and commitment of CNES's people.
