ISO certification ensures controls are put in place otherwise it would be difficult to maintain consistency across industries. If your business is bidding to win a potential large customer order or a contract, then you are most likely going to be asked if you have the necessary ISO standards in place.
ISO certification demonstrates that your business has adopted best practices by meeting the requirements of the specified international standard. This gives your business recognition and competitive edge which can potentially help to grow your business.
ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) is an independent, non-governmental, international organisation that develops standards to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services, and systems.
ISO certifications exist for various systems from quality, energy management, health & safety, environmental, business continuity to information security. ISO standards can be applied to any industrial sector. Each certification has separate standards and criteria and is classified numerically as shown below:
ISO 9001 Quality Management
ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety
ISO 27001 Information Security Management
ISO 14001 Environmental Management
ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management
ISO 5001 Energy Management
Depending on the importance and marketplace you need to decide which ISO standard you need to apply to your business. We help you to achieve your required ISO certification and strengthen your business processes and management system.
We will carry out a gap analysis that will show how much development work is required to meet the requirements. We will then work with you to strengthen your management system and processes to overcome the gaps to have you ready to receive the external surveillance audits from a certification body. Choosing the right certification body is important because the cost varies depending on their brand strength and reputation in the industry – a bit like choosing between different car manufacturers. We have experience of working with different certification bodies and can help you make the right choice for your business. After appointing the certification body, we will manage your surveillance audits until you receive your ISO certificate,
