Associate Consultant Programme (ACP)

You know that bringing standards to your business has many benefits as well as getting you ahead of the competition. You also know that being independently assessed and certified gives you credibility and helps attract new customers. However, you may not have the resources, time or expertise in house to achieve this on your own. That’s why we can show how and where to get that much needed additional support.

ACP LogoOur Associate Consultant Programme (ACP) can connect you with independent consultants in your region who can give you the expert advice you need. Our ACP members can help you put industry best practice into place within your business. They can also support you throughout implementation as you work towards certification – sharing their knowledge of regulatory requirements and showing you how to stay resilient and responsive.  This way, we maintain our impartiality as an independent certification body.

All members are issued with an ACP logo and certificate of membership, which are different and separate to our Assurance Mark. Membership of the ACP does not imply that we represent, recommend or certify these consultants, but we do know that our members across the UK have extensive experience of working with certified management systems.
