FAQ

ISO Certification refers to the process of achieving a formal verification by a certification body that an organisation’s management system meets the standards set forth by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). These standards provide a framework for best practices in various aspects of an organisation’s operations, like quality management, information security, Health & Safety or environmental sustainability.

 

Certification can be a useful tool to add credibility, by demonstrating that your management system and service meets the expectations of your customers. For some industries, certification is a legal or contractual requirement.

Each ISO Certification has huge benefits including:

  • Better efficiency
  • Stronger customer relationships and satisfaction
  • Reduced costs
  • Happier, more engaged employees
  • Reduced insurance premiums

Preparation

One of our expert auditors will contact you and discuss your audit plan, answer any questions you have and ensure you have all the information you need.

 

Initial Stage One

The first assessment is to conduct a documented review of the management system you have in place and identify the areas that require improvement or potential nonconformities at the stage two assessment that could affect your gaining certification.

Our auditors will then issue a full report highlighting the areas for improvement in preparation for the next step.

 

Initial Stage Two Assessment

Once you are ready, we will review the changes you have made following your stage one assessment and take further sampled evidence of the management system to determine if you have met the requirements of the chosen ISO Standard. Our auditor will then highlight any areas for improvement or nonconformances that need correcting.

 

Annual Review – Surveillance

As part of the ISO Certification, you are required to have an annual surveillance visit to ensure you have maintained compliance. The objective of this is to ensure your Management System has continued to fulfil requirements.
