Coral Products Mouldings Ltd is part of the Coral Products PLC Group and is a manufacturer and distributor of plastic injection, extruded and blow moulded products into a diverse range of sectors including food packaging, personal care, household and automotive. The Company works to very high quality/environmental standards and already have documented systems compliant with ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and BRC.

Many of our clients require certification of the latest Health & Safety standards, namely ISO 45001:2016.  Our company employs 92 staff at present.  Accreditation to ISO 45001 would assist in further efficient growth of the business.  The creation of a revised ISO accredited quality management system would also support efficiencies in the day to day running of the business including:

  • Health & Safety Objectives
  • Hazard & Risk Identification
  • Recruitment and training
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Emergency Preparedness & Response

Obtaining and maintaining ISO 45001:2016 accreditation will also enable the business to secure larger contracts and generate further opportunities for expansion and growth.


This RFQ is for a gap analysis to aid with preparing and setting up its systems to gain ISO 45001 accreditation. Quotations are invited from appropriately qualified consulting bodies
