Intact Systems at theÂ ISEAL Conference 2016 in Washington, DC
From 10â12 May 2016, the ISEAL Global Sustainability Standards Conference united more than 200 standard setters, certification bodies and industry experts in Washington, DC, where they explored the role of standards in the context of promoting social and ecological sustainability.
âGrowing Impacts: Innovation and Evolutionâ
Under the motto âGrowing Impacts: Innovation and Evolutionâ this yearâs conference wasÂ dedicated to the benefits that standard systems gain from technological achievements and innovative software solutions. Special attention wasÂ paid to the numerous possibilities of collaboration and data linking. They help to enhance the positive influence as well as the social and ecological impact of standards.
Maintain credibility â create safety
Another core concern of the conference wasÂ the credibility of standard systems. Especially standards that are gradually expanding and covering more and more segments and products are increasingly facing challenges maintaining their credibility and hence consumersâ trust. The smart use of cutting-edge technology combined with efficient software solutions can help to ensure both maximum safety and transparency.
A question closely related to this issue is how small and micro businesses can obtain a certification in a sensible and above all affordable manner. The breakout session entitled âBusiness Case for Certification for Small Producersâ addressed this issue and discussed various experiences, approaches and strategies. To see what else the ISEAL Conference had to offer, please have a look at the detailedÂ conference program.
