Management Service Division, a globally recognized testing and certification organization has certified that Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. effectively implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) in accordance with ISO 14001. ISO 14001 is the internationally recognized standard that provides a specification for a complete and effective Environmental Management System.

A complete system must have detailed policies in place, a sound organizational structure, procedures, goals and objectives and defined processes. Upon certification, TUV America acknowledged that Allegro meets all aspects of the EMS elements required by ISO 14001 with 100% conformity to the specified standard.
