Quality management starts in development, where every single aspect is taken into account, in order to evince the product functionality.
The purchase of raw materials is subjected to scrutiny regarding technical and functional indicators, previously defined in the design phase and aligned with RAL ( Quality Mark for Candles, European Candles Association), REACH standards and other applicable legislation. The manufacturing lines where the technical, aesthetical and functional characteristics of the products are certified, are continuously self-regulated and self-controlled. This process is supplemented by audit, based on the criticality of the detected deviations.
Promol process is also subjected to external audits. Promol is certified by RAL standard, in terms of Process Quality, by Nordic Eco Label (Swan Label, Scandinavian norm aiming to adopt sustainability principles in the materials and industrial processes used), as well as by RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil), regarding the sustainability of palm plantations and downstream processes).
