Quality management

To contribute to law enforcement cooperation through learning for the benefit of European citizens, CEPOL aims at consistently providing products and services that meet stakeholder expectations and the applicable regulatory requirements. CEPOL intends to provide to a variety of stakeholder groups with high quality training and learning opportunities, and is continuously learning from international good practices.

CEPOL is committed to implement internationally recognised management standards, such as ISO 9001:2015. CEPOL intends to ensure compliance with the applicable ISO 9001:2015 requirements and with the agency’s Internal Control Standards.

CEPOL focuses on customers, stakeholders and other interested parties, provides leadership, engages and involves people, uses a process-based approach, encourages improvement, uses evidence-based decision-making, and manages effective stakeholder relationships.

Furthermore, CEPOL aims at enhancing services through the effective application of the agency’s Management System, by continuously improving its processes, addressing risks and opportunities and ensuring the Management System is fit for purpose.

The Agency’s Management System has been assessed by an independent accredited body Lloyd’s Register (LRQA), and found in full compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 requirements.

The certificate was originally issued in February 2017 and renewed in February 2020 following successful recertification audit, for the same scope: ‘Management of the Law Enforcement Residential Activities, Exchange Programme and Online Courses, Modules and Webinars: support, develop, implement and coordinate training for law enforcement officials’.

The CEPOL’s Management System will continue to be audited each year to ensure that compliance with internationally recognised quality management standard ISO 9001:2015 is being maintained.
