The Integrated Management System of the CHIRON Group

Quality, environmental protection, energy management, occupational health and safety play a fundamental role in the practices of the CHIRON Group and its employees. Principles and binding specifications define the standards we have set for ourselves here. These standards are integrated into a unified structure that covers all requirements and processes: our Integrated Management System. The Integrated Management System creates transparency from the small to the big picture, enables efficient control of processes and procedures, and ensures continuous improvement. An integral part of this is the identification and assessment of risks and opportunities, and the subsequent definition and implementation of measures. Just as important is the identification, monitoring, and compliance with external requirements.


Certified quality is a key prerequisite for the global competitiveness of the CHIRON Group. Our quality management system makes a decisive contribution to the continuous optimization of our processes and to meeting the high demands of our customers reliably now and in future.

Environmental protection

Making optimum use of resources, prevention of long-term damage through proactive actions, reduction of waste and hazardous substances as far as possible, awareness of employees for environmentally friendly behavior: Just a few examples of how we continuously and systematically improve the environmental performance of the CHIRON Group worldwide.

Energy management

The primary tasks here are to reduce energy consumption and increase energy efficiency. To this end, we identify and review the largest consumers in a continuous process, define improvement measures, such as new windows at our headquarters in Tuttlingen, and implement them in a focused manner.

Occupational health and safety

A healthy working environment, protection against work-related hazards, proactive measures to avoid or minimize risks: The safety and health of all employees is a top priority for the CHIRON Group.  The instruction and training of employees and managers is a central part of this.

CHIRON Group meets all relevant standards
