Certification activities are – or should be – a Service and NOT an Imposition. Our staff, fully qualified and registered with professional registration bodies, undergo rigorous internal training, no matter what their basic qualification level on joining us, to ensure that this concept is understood and practiced for the benefit of our clients.

- ISO 9001: Quality Management System

Just as we certify our clients’ processes and procedures to conform to certain standards, our own approach towards handling client certification also involves a well-defined and proven system. Here, we take you step-by-step through how your company should approach the task of ISO certification.
Before commencing with certification, ensure there is substantial Senior Management support and commitment to the implementation of the appropriate standard, particularly with regards to the financial and human resources required.
- Acquire the relevant standard and all sector guidelines relevant to your industry if available. These can be obtained from Sector E Trade Associations, professional Institutions etc.
- Decide on the scope of certification required and which parts of the company are to be certified.
- Review your existing system against the requirements of the appropriate standard and guidelines and identify what needs to be done to comply with the standard. Use where ever you can the experiences of other certified companies in the same industry.
- Identify the resources required to achieve effective compliance. Decide whether there is sufficient expertise in house or the support of a consultant is required.
- Commence generation and implementation of the documented management system.
