ISO and Blue Flag certification

Calafell’s three beaches and seafront promenade were the first beaches in Catalonia to get ISO 14001 certification from AENOR in 2003. In 2006, the system was recertified for ISO 14001:2004 by the same certification body, and in March 2008, the environmental management system was certified for the European Union’s EMAS.

Our beaches have enjoyed Blue Flag status since 1992, with the collaboration of the Tarragona Provincial Council Tourist Trust.
