HSEQ / Management Systems

Open Grid Europe adheres to high standards in quality management, occupational health & safety, environmental management, energy management, technical safety management and information security as a matter of course.

Open Grid Europe is one of the first natural gas transmission companies in Europe to operate an integrated management system (QSE system) for quality, occupational health & safety, energy efficiency and environmental protection, which also meets technical safety management requirements.

The certificates awarded to Open Grid Europe confirm that our integrated QSE system meets all the requirements arising from legislation and applicable technical codes and standards, including DIN EN ISO 9001 for quality, DVGW Code of Practise G 1000 for technical safety management, the internationally recognised British occupational health and safety audit system specification OHSAS 18001, as well as DIN EN ISO 50001 for energy efficiency and DIN EN ISO 14001 for environmental matters.

Since December 2017, the QSE system has been supplemented by a certified information security management system ("ISMS") conforming to the requirements of the IT security catalogue of the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), with DIN EN ISO 27001 and DIN EN ISO 27019 as the main basis for certification.
