Regular updates on the latest developments in the ISO 9001 series and other management systems will make sure you’re always up to date. You can also keep your skills relevant with our training courses . All of this, plus support from your client manager and business reviews, will help your organization to stay compliant and competitive, and to keep improving.


Use the BSI Assurance Mark

Once certified, you’ll be able to make your own mark by displaying the BSI Assurance Mark. It’s a valuable marketing tool that you can use to promote your organization. It signals a clear achievement and can offer a competitive advantage. We’re recognized globally as one of the most experienced independent assessors of best practice. That means you’ll also get international recognition as a business that achieves standards of excellence every day.

You’ll also be listed in our global Client Directory  alongside other leading organizations, helping you to open new markets, secure existing ones and compete with confidence.


Accelerate your quality management with BSI Excellerator

Now you’re certified to ISO 9001 you can get even more out of your quality management system with the BSI Excellerator tool. The free tool lets you compare your ISO 9001 management system with those in similar organizations, drawing on our data taken from thousands of businesses in different sectors. This gives you the information you need to benchmark your performance against industry norms. So you can identify strengths and areas where you could make further improvements.  And this knowledge empowers you to drive improvement, continually. 


Drive continual improvement with Entropy Software

It’s one thing achieving a standard, but it’s another to maintain that standard. Without constant attention and continual improvements, standards can slip. Entropy can help make sure you not only stay at compliance level – it can give you an organization-wide system for driving performance improvements.

Entropy Software provides a number of powerful features that can drive continual business improvement throughout your organization. These features are continued within five modules that are used to drive efficiencies in: 

  • Audit and Compliance Management
  • Knowledge Management
  • Risk Management
  • Incident Management
  • Performance Management

Integrate to keep getting better

Now that your quality management system is certified to ISO 9001, you can use your quality management knowledge to improve other areas of your organization – such as environmental management. ISO 14001 is the standard for environmental management and it follows many of the same requirements as ISO 9001. That means you’ve already completed nearly half the work needed to certify to ISO 14001 as well.

And if you already have two or more systems in place, you can combine and streamline the way you manage processes. This makes them more manageable and eliminates the need to duplicate work. You can also try using PAS 99 as a framework to integrate systems to boost all-round performance.


Transfer your certification to BSI

Certifying through BSI means more than associating your business with a global brand. You’ll also get the benefits that all valued BSI clients receive. And these don’t just stop at certification. We’ll help you stay up to date with standards and training so you can keep improving, as well as stay compliant. Plus, our six-monthly reassessments will help you to achieve excellence every day. You’ll also be able to display the BSI Assurance mark, helping you stand out from your competitors.
