PAS 99 for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs)

Small and medium-sized business can have just as many certified management systems in place as larger companies. And that means you can get just as many benefits from implementing PAS 99. We can help you take the hard work out of managing more than one system at the same time. Find out how we can make the world’s first specification for integrated management systems work for businesses of all sizes.  


Shaping PAS 99 for SMEs

Many of our customers asked for a framework that would give them one set of processes and policies for all their management systems. And those customers ran small and large businesses alike. That’s why we developed PAS 99 using the ISO guide for management system standards for all businesses. We understand that smaller companies may have tighter budgets and less time to work with – which makes PAS 99 all the more important to your business.   The framework can save you the time and cost of auditing more than one management system at a time. And the same goes for training, administration and improving performance. So if you are a small business, you can take advantage of our packages that can be customised to your needs. Your PAS 99 package will only include services relevant to your business. It will also be designed to overcome the challenges that larger companies may not face. And once you have a PAS 99 integrated management system in place, your size won’t matter.  



PAS 99 Training

We use accelerated learning techniques to make sure you fully understand integrated management systems. And we put your learning into context with a blend of classroom teaching, workshops and interactive sessions. We can also bring our training to you with our in-house courses.



Help us to shape standards

We’re open to suggestions for new standards and take these to consultation with industry associations or equivalent organizations. We make sure we get the standards right by working with representatives from consumer organizations; professional institutions; certification, testing and inspection bodies; educational establishments; research organizations; UK notified bodies; enforcement bodies; and government departments.

Why BSI?

The food industry impacts every person on the planet. Though what the world's population may eat may differ depending on the geography, wealth, age, gender and availability of goods, no other sector plays such a vital role in all of our day-today lives and culture. Economically, food represents 10% of global GDP (valued at US$48 trillion by the World Bank).

But the food sector also faces significant challenges. Each year, food-borne illness makes one in ten people ill and is the cause of death for millions around the world. Population growth projections and an increasing middle class suggest that the demand for food will increase 70% by 2050. And, consumers are increasingly conscious about what goes into their food, how it's made, its impact on ecosystems and where it comes from.

BSI believes the world deserves food that is safe, sustainable and socially responsible. We support the food sector by developing and publishing standards of best practice, supply chain solutions as well as training and certification to not only the most popular food safety standards, but other business improvement standards that work together to make organizations more resilient.

Working in 172 countries, we pride ourselves on the expertise, integrity and professionalism of our people. Our mission is to help our 80,000 clients, ranging from high-profile global brands to small local companies, survive and prosper in today's world.
