Transneft Diascan has undergone a regular audit of its occupational health management system (OHMS) and environmental management system (EMS) to verify their compliance with international standards. An auditor of DQS, an international certification authority, confirmed the OHMS compliance with the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 international standard and recommended that the certificate issued in 2016 should be extended for another year.

This year, Transneft Diascan’s environmental management system has switched to the new version of the international standard: ISO 14001:2015 instead of ISO 14001:2004. The new version gives the EMS such advantages as possibilities for better integration with other management systems standards, and implementation of measures protecting the environment from negative impact and depletion, with stronger emphasis on environmental performance monitoring. Based on the audit’s results, the company will receive a new certificate of conformity with ISO 14001:2015.

The occupational health management system is part of Transneft Diascan's general management system. It is aimed at ensuring safe and healthy working conditions, safety of operational processes and safe work practices as well as a reduction of occupational injuries and diseases. The OHMS was adopted by the company in 2007 and certified in 2008.

The environmental management system ensures a high level of environmental conservation corresponding to requirements of the legislation; sets priorities when planning environmental measures and raises employees’ environmental awareness. The EMS was adopted at Transneft Diascan in 2004 and certified in 2005.
