UK and USA flags

The prospect of a bilateral trade deal between the United Kingdom and the United States of America has generated much discussion over the past few years. While the two countries are unlikely to finalise an agreement this year, it remains all but guaranteed that the UK and the USA will enjoy a far closer trading relationship now that the UK has left the European Union.

This means that a lot of British companies will be looking to establish strong working relationships with American businesses, and vice versa.

How NPT Management Systems can help US businesses

If you're based in the USA and you're interested in working with British suppliers, we at NPT Management Systems can conduct a supplier assessment on your behalf.

We are based in the south of England, so by outsourcing your supplier assessment to us, you will significantly reduce the amount of travel required - saving you money and minimising your impact on the environment.

The ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has had an enormous impact on organisations in virtually every sector.

Now that the UK's lockdown rules have been relaxed, many people are returning to the workplace after weeks of working from home.

Pre Qualification Questionnaires

 

As part of a supplier section or tendering process, you may be required to complete a set of pre-qualification questionnaires. These can be time consuming and often appear complex due to the terminology used and the evidence that you're required to submit.

But don't worry - NPT Management Systems are on hand to help. We are experienced at completing PQQs, and can work with you to fill in your pre-qualification questionnaires quickly and efficiently!

Although it's not something we tend to advertise on our website, we are more than happy to help you complete the necessary paperwork. Just give us a call on 02380 659 867 or send your enquiry to enquiries@nptmanagementsystems.co.uk today.

If you are yet to begin your journey towards ISO 9001 certification, it's never too late to start! Click the button below to find out how NPT Management Systems can help you to get certified.

Back in 2016, we helped grit blasting and specialist coating company Southern Coating Contractors to implement a quality management system that met both ISO 9001 and National Highways Sector Scheme 19A requirements.

Since then, we have been assisting SCC with annual surveillance audits, and we are pleased to report that - after a site visit in Hatfield - the latest audit was completed without any non-conformances being raised.

What is NHSS19A?

NHSS stands for National Highways Sector Schemes, a type of management system that's specifically geared towards organisations who work on the British road network.

NHSS19A is a specific certification that covers the use of corrosion-resistant industrial coatings for ferrous metals. As mentioned above, NPT Management Systems previously helped Southern Coating Contractors to plan and implement a bespoke management system that complied with NHSS19A standards as well as meeting the requirements for ISO 9001.

Here at NPT Management Systems, we love to contribute to our community. Not only have we helped countless Hampshire-based businesses to achieve ISO 9001 certification, we're also enthusiastic supporters of many local charities and organisations.

For example, we recently had the privilege of attending a charity ball organised by Ben's Heroes Trust, a charity that helps young cancer patients to access new treatments and enjoy a better quality of life. We were thrilled to show our support and make a donation - the 'Captain's Table' event was a huge success and the money raised came to more than £6,500!

We have also historically supported sporting events like the River Hamble Games, which will be taking place on the shore of the Hamble this weekend. We've previously sponsored the volleyball event, and we're immensely looking forward to hearing about this year's games - we're sure they'll be a smashing success once again.
