Has your ISO Certificate Expired or was your ISO Audit on your list on things to do?
Have you let your ISO 9001 Quality,14001 Environmental or 18001/45001 Health & Safety certificate expire and are considering reapplying for certification? Our qualified consultants and auditors can help you to get your system updated to comply with the latest ISO Standards.
With so much for businesses to consider at the moment, the impact of Brexit, legal compliance, business risk analysis, competitors, budgets and financial analysis etc. we understand that ISO Certification is not the be-all and end-all for businesses, but it is a good tool to drive improvement within any business and it will certainly demonstrate a commitment to continual improvement to future clients. The disciplines that the standards require help businesses develop standardisation of documentation, monitoring of key areas, reduce risks and strive to explore identified opportunities.
At Quality Systems Consultancy, we offer a range of packages to help spread the cost of certification and to help your business get the best from the ISO Standard(s). If you are looking simply to develop a system that helps your business to identify risks and opportunities, drive down costs, add value and ultimately improve customer service then consider ISO 9001.To help your business identify its environmental aspects and impacts, legal obligations and compliance, waste controls, energy reduction, greener credentials etc then consider ISO 14001. To drive improvement in Health and Safety, including addressing legal and regulatory compliance, training and awareness, driving down risks and promoting a positive health and safety culture to make people safe, then its ISO 45001:2018.
Ultimately you might want to consider looking at an Integrated Management System covering all 3 ISO Standards.
It is worth mentioning that some potential clients will not consider appointing you for tendering for work if you do not have a UKAS certified Quality Management System. You may be disappointed to hear this, but reality is that potential clients know that a UKAS registered ISO 9001 business has good systems in place that are robust and are audited regularly by an independent external third party.They know that the company is committed to continual improvement and if they do have a problem they know that it will be corrected and actions implemented to stop reoccurrence. You may also want to consider that some of your competitors may well have these standards which ultimately puts them in a stronger position. You do not necessarily need to get certificated, but the certification process helps to show customers that your system has been audited and checked to prove it meets requirements.
