Quality: ISO 9001
We offer an efficient and economical service to support ISO 9001 quality management systems. ISO management systems are best operated by qualified professionals, and our consultants provide you with this professional help on an efficient part-time basis which suits your business. We offer any level of support you need, from partial assistance, to fully operating your system for you. Our services are warranted and quality-assured. For more than sixty years our organisation has been assisting thousands of businesses in Australia and abroad to achieve more efficient operations.
A quality management system enables businesses and other organisations to consistently meet their quality objectives in the delivery of the products and services they supply. The international standard, ISO 9001, describes a form of quality management system that can be externally audited for compliance by an independent certification body. ISO 9001 applies to all industries and companies of all sizes, and is recognised globally, with more than 1 million certificates currently issued.
Improving Your Business
ISO 9001 systems aim to ensure that all processes and procedures affecting quality will be well controlled and that all relevant business inputs will meet requirements. The result is high quality products and services, and happy customers. ISO 9001 also has procedures for reducing defects and non-conformances, helping improve efficiency and reduce waste, thereby lowering costs. Having ISO 9001 is a powerful marketing tool, and opens new commercial opportunities in instances where being certified is a prerequisite to doing business.
Relevant, Right-sized, Ready for Audit
Our professionals make sure you get the most out of your ISO system with the minimal fuss. We make sure your system is dynamic and relevant to what your business does, right-sized for the needs of your organisation, and ready for audit at any time. Few organisations are large enough to justify full-time ISO professionals. We give you professional help to take care of the day to day running of your system, so that you and your staff can focus on the core activities of your business.
Gaining ISO 9001 certification can open the door to new opportunities or tenders which were previously out of reach. Many companies or government agencies require their suppliers to have ISO 9001 certification.
When and Where you need us
If you don’t have ISO 9001 certification we can assist and guide you through the certification process. If you already have certification to ISO 9001 but your system is ineffective or obsolete, we can renovate, improve or upgrade your system. If you want to outsource to an economical maintenance service, we can manage your ISO 9001 system on your behalf, at moderate rates, based on regular visits at any level that you may require.
