Safeguarding Quality in All We Do

Orbital Gas Systems’ Comprehensive Management System is designed to safeguard Product Quality, Health and Safety and the Environment throughout the design, build, installation commissioning and after sales processes. Quality, Health, Safety, Environmental, and Ethical Business practices are considered to be of paramount importance by Orbital. Orbital will actively promote and administer a strong Quality, Health, Safety, Environmental and Ethical culture amongst our staff and our sub-contractors.

Orbital’s Quality Management System having been verified by an independent third party (BSI) as complying with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001, demonstrates our ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable regulatory requirements.

The entire management system is subject to annual audit by independent third party Achilles under the Utilities Vendor Database (UVDB) “Verify” scheme.

Conflict Minerals

In August of 2012, the SEC within the US implemented Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, mandating all SEC issuers to report whether or not conflict minerals are used in the production of their products and to disclose the country of origin for these minerals. Conflict minerals consist of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold and are referred to as the 3TGs. 3TGs originate in multiple locations around the world including the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries (collectively referred to as the “Covered Countries”). In the DRC, some of the sources of the 3TGs are controlled by armed groups that have conducted severe human rights violations.

Orbital Gas Systems is committed to ethical business practices and the protection of basic human rights. Orbital expects all of its suppliers to have policies and procedures in place to ensure that any 3TGs used in the production of the products sold to any of its subsidiary companies are DRC conflict-free. This means that the products must not contain 3TGs that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Covered Countries. Orbital is actively working with its supply chain to do a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI) while exercising due diligence by following the OECD Due Diligence Guidance.
