We make the certification process simple. After we have received your application, we appoint a client manager who will guide you and your business through the following steps.
- Gap analysis -
This pre-assessment service is highly recommended, as we can take a closer look at your existing quality management system and compare it with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. This helps you identify areas that need more work, before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and money.
- Formal assessment -
A two-stage process. First your BSI Client Manager will review your organization’s readiness for assessment by checking if the necessary ISO 9001 procedures and controls have been developed in your organization.
We will share the details of our findings with you via our Assurance Portal, so that if we find gaps, you can close them.Next, if all the requirements are in place, we’ll assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification of ISO 9001.
- 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, with regular surveillance visits to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves and adds value to your organization.
You’ll be able to access all the information related to your certification via our BSI Assurance Portal. Available 24/7, you can view essential information, such as your next 12 months of visit dates, audit reports, and certificates to support you with managing your BSI assessments and promoting your success.
