ISO 9001 Certification
We use a 5-step approach to ISO 9001 certification.
STEP 1: GAP ASSESSMENT
We will conduct an evaluation of your current business activities and find any gaps to the ISO 9001:2015 standard. Most clients are closer to compliance than they think - it is often a case of catching up with documentation. We also provide practical recommendations on how to close those gaps, summarized in a gap assessment report. This report then serves as a roadmap for the next 4 steps of implementing ISO 9001.
STEP 2: TRAINING
We advocate a multi-tiered approach to training so that people learn what they need to know, when they need to know it. Our training helps your management team and your staff understand what is expected of them, and how to be successful in supporting and running the Quality Management System. Then we train you on how to train new people.
Go or No-Go?
If you decide you can't proceed, for any reason, you can end your engagement with no additional costs. It's up to you.
STEP 3: IMPLEMENTATION
We will lead you through the implementation of a Quality Management System that is tailored to your needs while ensuring compliance to ISO 9001. Most of the project is done in this step. Preparing and implementing the Quality Management System is a joint undertaking with shared responsibilities between you and our consultants. We can do as much, or as little, of the work as you'd like.
STEP 4: DRESS REHEARSAL
Are you ready for your big day? Don't worry, we won't let you fall. We will conduct a thorough audit of your new Quality Management System and identify any issues before your registration audit.
STEP 5: CERTIFICATION
We can actively participate in the certification audits to support and assist you through the process.
