Develop New Systems
If you don’t have an ISO 9001 System we can help you develop one, and guide you through the certification process. We can help write procedures, processes, manuals, forms and quality policies.
Implementation & Training
A system must be documented and implemented to meet the requirements of the standard. We will assist and train your staff to follow the policies and procedures and do the paperwork.
Ongoing maintenance like internal audits, risk assessments and site inspections is required to keep your certification. We can assist with this through periodic visits as often or as seldom as required.
Attend External Audit
External audits are challenging and time-consuming. If we developed or maintain your system our consultant can attend your external audit to make it an easier and less stressful experience.
An internal audit is required annually to maintain an ISO certification. We can do this for you if you don’t have the internal resources or would like a fresh set of eyes to suggest improvements.
If you already have a system, or part of a system such as existing policies, procedures, or forms, we can determine if you already meet the requirements of ISO 9001 or what needs to be improved.
Experts in Quality since 1969
What is ISO 9001?
A quality management system assists an organisation to consistently meet its quality targets for its products and services.
ISO 9001 is an international standard for quality management systems that can be externally audited by an independent certification body. The standard involves considering customer requirements, and designing processes to meet those requirements, then continuous improvement of those processes.
ISO 9001 has its origins in military standards and applies to all industries and companies of all sizes, and is recognised globally.
What we do
Build Systems: If you don’t have ISO 9001 certification we can guide you through the certification process.
Update Existing Systems: Are you already certified but your system is ineffective or obsolete? We can renovate, improve or upgrade it.
Internal Audit or Gap Analysis: If you have failed an audit or need assistance to do an internal audit or a gap analysis we can also help.
Ongoing Maintenance: Additionally if you want to outsource the ongoing maintenance of your ISO 9001 system, such as internal audits, risk assessments and site inspections, we can maintain it for you at moderate rates, through monthly or quarterly visits as required.
Value for Money Services
Our rates are undeniably competitive compared to other consultants, and indeed compared to the cost of an in-house ISO professional.
We keep fees low so that clients see the value in using our services on an ongoing basis. Of course if you just need once-off assistance you enjoy the same great rates.
Our services are warranted and quality assured – we are certified by Intertek SAI Global.
Through our pool of practitioners nationwide and internationally we have a wealth of experience in ISO certification.
Our Approach to ISO 9001 Systems
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 also relevant to what your business does. Furthermore our systems are right-sized for your organisation, and ready for audit at any time.
Few organisations are large enough to justify full-time ISO professionals. We give you specialist help to take care of the maintenance of your system. On the other hand you and your staff can then focus on the core activities of your business.
Benefits of having ISO 9001 Certification
ISO 9001 systems aim to ensure that all processes affecting quality are controlled and that all relevant business inputs meet requirements. The result is high-quality products and services, and happy customers.
The standard requires systematic monitoring and verification of process outputs. Taking corrective actions then leads to reduced defects, helping improve efficiency and reduce waste, and lower costs over time.
Having ISO 9001 is also a powerful marketing tool. Moreover it also opens new business opportunities where customers require ISO certification.
