Company History

S.I.L.C., partly, thanks to the thirty years of collaboration with the main European manufacturers, but more especially from the accumulation of experience and know-how which it made its own, has always paid close attention to the quality standards in the widest sense of the term.

This attitude has been rewarded with numerous certifications and citations received over the last years:

1996 Directive 93/42/CEE of 14.06.1993
L.D. n° 46 of 24.02.1997 and successive modifications.
Regulation that defines the conditions for authorising the commercialisation of products that guarantee the safety and the protection of the health of users of medical devices (realisation of technical documentation, CE mark, declaration of conformity).
2000 UNI EN ISO 9002 : 1994
Regulation that defines the international requirements for quality management systems.
2002 UNI EN ISO 9001 : 2000
The regulation that replaced the three previous norms ISO 9001, 9002 and 9003.

2004 BS 7799-2 : 2002
The exponential diffusion of automatic computerised systems and applications of e-business has highlighted the importance of the security of information that transits on websites that carry out on-line activity.
Above all, there is the obligation to respect the new disciplines concerning privacy (Leg. Dec. 196 of 30.06.2003) concerning the means of treating data and the minimum security measures requested. This gives rise to the BS 7799-2 certification that governs the protection of company information, guaranteeing confidentiality, integrity and availability, through the implementation of a Security of information management system based on the model of continual improvement (PDCA) typical of standards ISO 9001 and 14001.
2006 ISO/IEC 27001 : 2005
At the end of 2005, the British Standard 7799-2:2002 was accepted by the International Organization Standardization (ISO) in the scheme of ISO/IEC 27001 certification, which, replacing the previous BS 7799-2:2002, has become the international standard for the certification of the Management Systems for Information Security
2006 OHSAS 18001
The OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) certification defines the features and requirements of the Health and Safety in the workplace management systems.
This system envisages the formulation of precise objectives and specific policies for the health and safety of workers of a specific organisation, in particular aiming to: reduce the risk of accidents, increase prevention and controls to minimise the number of injuries, increase job satisfaction (internal client) and, more generally, improve the company climate.

S.p.A. for an effective integration of the Management System of quality (UNI EN ISO 9001), of the environment (UNI EN ISO 14001) and of Safety (OHSAS 18001).

2008 UNI EN ISO 13485:2004
The regulation specifies the requirements necessary for the research, development, production, sale and distribution, even domiciliary, of medical devices (in this case, absorbent aids for incontinence), with relative after-sales service, favouring the global harmonisation of the regulatory requirements connected to such devices.
2016 Environmental Product Declaration P2654
From April 2016 SILC can issue an environmental declaration EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) for each of their own incontinence products. In order to achieve this prestigious target, SILC established a data collection system, the assessment of environmental matters, the calculation of the environmental impacts for each product, in compliance with Product Category Rules realizing an EPD in compliance with ISO 14025.
