At Tratos quality is paramount to grow as a business and to create a better and safer world.
The company’s Quality Policy is reviewed for suitability in every Management Review and it is communicated throughout the entire organisation. Tratos adheres to a policy of total commitment to quality. This commitment can only be effective if it is applied within the company and its suppliers.
Quality measures extend to producing cables without halogens to provide protection for people working with its cables and for the environment. Since 1980, Tratos has also been using clean renewable energy from its own hydroelectric plant. In 2001, the company started producing “Tratos-Green”, a cable made using only hydroelectric energy.

Indeed, Tratos’ values are based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations for the creation of a better and more sustainable world. By adhering to quality standards and continuously implementing and applying new and stronger quality measures, the company is able to apply into practice its values.

Being compliant with Construction Products Regulation (CPR) is one of the long-term goals of Tratos’ sustainable development strategy. CPR deals with the way a product is placed on the market – the methods of assessment and testing, how the performance of a product should be declared and the conformance system of assessment for construction products.
Tratos devotes considerable human and financial resources to the research and development of optimum performance cable products for energy and telecommunications. Its researchers continually monitor cables under stress: the effects of fire and any toxic substances released during combustion.
Tratos is fully compliant with the REACH, a European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals. It came into force on 1st June 2007 and replaced a number of European Directives and Regulations with a single system.
