Certification to ISO 9001 Quality Management
ISO 9001 certification gets your quality management systems recognised globally. Demonstrate your compliance and commitment to industry-respected practices; stay competitive; and open up new business opportunities.
How to get certified to ISO 9001
Let us make the certification process simple for you. Once we have received your application, we will appoint a client manager whom will guide you and your business through the following steps:
- Gap analysis -
This is an optional pre-assessment service. A 'Gap Analysis' is a mock audit exercise where we take a closer look at your existing quality management systems and compare it with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard.
A report will be given to you at the end of th exercise to help you identify areas that need more work before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and money.
- Formal assessment -
This happens in two stages. In Stage One, we review your organisation’s preparedness for assessment by checking if the necessary ISO 9001 certification procedures and controls have been developed. We will share the details of our findings with you so that if we find gaps, you can close them.
If all the requirements are in place, we will then begin Stage Two assessment on the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organisation to make sure that they are working effectively as required for the ISO 9001 certification.
- Certification and beyond -
When you have passed the formal assessment you will receive an ISO 9001 certificate, which is valid for three years. Your client manager will stay in touch during this time, paying you regular visits to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves.
