The cornerstone of this is a Quality Management System which meets the ISO 9000 series of standards, and which is regularly assessed and approved by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI).
The ISO 9000 series of standards is recognised around the world. It is a set of international standards which describes elements critical to a comprehensive quality system.
This affects product and service quality, from the definition of policy and individuals' quality responsibilities through design, procurement, manufacture, testing and delivery, to maintenance of the system itself by audits, corrective action and management review.
Since 1988, BOC has had more than 250 facilities certified, worldwide.
In Ireland, our Dublin, Cork and Belfast production and filling branches have ISO 9001 accreditation.
Our Dublin and Cork facilities also have the ISO 14001 standard for environmental management.
We also provide a range of products accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to ISO 17025 'General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories'.
As part of this, BOC provides an extensive range of accredited gas calibration mixtures to facilitate environmental measurements, analysis of natural gas and petrochemicals, evidential breath-analyser calibrations and exhaust emissions measurements.

BOC is the first commercial gases company in the UK to be accredited by UKAS to ISO Guide 34: 2000 ‘General Requirements for the Competence of Reference Material Producers’ as a Reference Material Producer.
Accreditation as both a Reference Material Producer for gases and as a Calibration Laboratory ensures that a consistent and technically robust approach is taken to the production and certification of gas calibration mixtures, including the comparability of measurements and certification data.
All aspects of the process, from contract review through preparation, analysis and certification, are covered. This allows us to provide our customers with a high-quality product which meets both current and future needs.
We also have a large range of gas mixtures which are directly traceable to national standards, and medical mixtures licensed for sale by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and the Irish Medicines Board (IMB)
