Ribose becomes first organization outside UK to achieve new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification

World’s first technology company to achieve certification by BSI

[Hong Kong] – 25 September 2015 – Cloud collaboration platform provider Ribose has become the first organization outside of the UK to achieve accredited certification to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, the newly revised international standards for Quality Management Systems and Environmental Management Systems. Ribose is also the first technology company worldwide to receive ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certification.

ISO 9001 is the world’s most widely recognized standard for quality management systems, and its latest revision was published on 23 September 2015. The standard helps organizations consistently meet the needs of customers and other key stakeholders in both the delivery and continuous improvement of products and services.

ISO 14001 is the world’s first international standard for environmental management systems, with its latest revision published on 15 September 2015. This standard helps organizations comply with environmental regulations, minimizing their environmental footprint and improving their environmental performance.

The new standards both feature a high level structure (HLS) – including terms, definitions, headings and text common to all management system standards in accordance to ISO Annex SL – allowing easier integration when implementing multiple management systems. Both of the new standards improve over previous revisions by requiring organizations to prioritize business needs, improving efficiency by implementing organizational-wide risk based thinking, better risk management, and enhanced leadership responsibility.

Ribose’s independent assessment and certification was performed by BSI (British Standards Institution), the originator of the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, and the first globally accredited certification body for ISO 9001:2015 as well as currently the only globally accredited certification body for ISO 14001:2015, both accredited by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Ribose’s revised certifications were issued the day ISO 9001:2015 was published, and the day after BSI received the world’s first ISO 14001:2015 accreditation from ANAB.

Ribose’s founder Ronald Tse explained, “Ribose is honored to be the first organization outside the UK – and the first technology company in the world – to achieve compliance to the new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards. Internationally certified, world-class corporate governance is one of our hallmarks, and we remain committed to upholding the highest standards of governance and transparency.”

“Ribose has been using the new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 draft standards to improve internal performance since they were first published in 2014. After assessing the revisions and their implications, we’ve been able to ensure our implementation takes full advantage of the new structure to streamline operations and enhance environmental performance,” Tse continued.

Tse concluded, “Achieving certification to these latest ISO standards demonstrates Ribose’s ongoing dedication to achieving the highest levels of corporate governance and environmental responsibility.”

Emmanuel Hervé, VP, Standards & Professional Solutions and Managing Director Hong Kong of BSI, said, “Ribose has achieved a major milestone in becoming the first organization outside of the UK to achieve simultaneous certification to the newly published ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards – confirming their commitment to continuous improvement of governance, practices and performance. It is encouraging to see a smaller organization like Ribose operating to the same stringent standards as the best-managed companies in the world.”

Hong Kong – 13 August 2015 – Ribose was named winner of two Gold Stevie® Awards in the “Best New Product or Service of the Year – Software Collaboration/Social Networking Solution” and “Most Innovative Company of the Year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand” categories in The 12th Annual International Business Awards today.

More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

The Ribose cloud collaboration platform democratizes collaboration technology, previously only affordable to large enterprises and government organizations, by putting world-class security and technology into the hands of all users. Capturing the attention of the technology and business worlds, Ribose has been featured in Fortune and TechTarget.

Accessible anywhere, offering enterprise-level service dependability, and complying with international governance standards – the Ribose platform gives users peace of mind to focus on their tasks at hand. Advocating a ‘highest-bar’ approach to cloud security, Ribose provides a higher level of security for all users by meeting the most stringent specified requirements worldwide.

According to Ribose founder Ronald Tse, “Ribose is delighted to have won not only one, but two Gold Stevie Awards in the hotly contested ‘Best New Product or Service of the Year’ and ‘Most Innovative Company of the Year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand’ categories at this year’s International Business Awards. These awards stand as testament to our mission of providing world-class collaboration capability to make working together easy and fun – while protecting users’ data with the highest, internationally certified levels of security.”

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August.

IBA Judges commended the Ribose platform for democratizing secure collaboration, by providing a “technically robust offering” with “collaboration tools in a secured setting”, allowing an unprecedented flexibility to use the “open platform” in both “professional working and fun” settings through a "very easy to use and attractive interface design" – as winning factors in naming Ribose’s platform the Best New Product or Service of the Year in the Software Collaboration/Social-Network Solution category. Ribose’s security focus was best summarized by a judge who noted: “Most existing cloud collaboration software simply does not offer the necessary security levels to protect mission-critical, commercially sensitive projects.”

In naming Ribose the Most Innovative Company of the Year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, IBA Judges lauded the company’s “great commitment and great team, deploying the technology to the benefit of both the company and the community,” “professional management” and “excellent performance”, as well as its “impressive accomplishment in achieving multiple certifications”, providing users with “all the benefits of an enterprise-class collaboration platform, with none of the associated infrastructure and costs.”
