The operations of Lakeuden Etappi Oy have been certified. The company uses an environmental system following the ISO 14001 standard and a quality system pertaining to the ISO 9001 standard. Both systems were certified on May 13, 2009. The certification audit was carried out by Bureau Veritas Certification Finland.

The certification is an indication of operational quality. A specific level has been reached, and the objective is to continuously develop operations and improve operational efficiency.

To maintain a granted certificate, continuous and determined work is needed. Operations are monitored closely, as are development proposals and feedback that serve to guide operations.
