Follow-up of previous audits

During the audit we also investigated how Floatel has addressed various previously identified non-conformities.

We found that Floatel had not addressed the following non-conformities in line with previous feedback to us:

  • Non-conformity concerning “management and follow-up of working environment risk” from chapter 5.1.1 of the report following the audit of 25.6.2019.

What happens now?

We have asked Floatel to report on how the non-conformities will be addressed and for their assessment of the improvement point observed. The reply deadline is set at 5 June 2020.
