The beaches of El Vendrell have the ISO 14001.2004 and ISO 9001:2008 certification. These certificates, recognised internationally, are checked through regular renewal audits on the management of the services and activities existing in the bathing zone and sands of the Coma-ruga, Sant Salvador and Francàs beaches.
This integrated certification is a tool that will enable the beaches of El Vendrell to be more competitive, since they inspire trust among the public and differentiate these beaches from other areas, due to their higher standard of quality with respect to installations and services and the fact that they are in a natural setting that is safe and protected.
In particular, the ISO 9001.2008 standard acknowledges the cleanliness of the sand and the quality of the water, together with the rescue and user attention service. It also ensures that the administrative contract processes and contracted services (cleaning, vigilance, rescue, signage and maintenance) are implemented in accordance with the respective specifications.
The ISO 14001 standard also recognises the undertaking to respect the environment through applying a sustainable development management model that also promotes responsible tourism in the coastal environment. It also takes into account cost-cutting by saving energy, fuel and drinking water, as well as reducing the production of waste.
