Quality managment systems

Achieving ISO 9001 certification for your business doesn't need to be a nightmare. Here's a simple step-by-step guide to the entire process:

  • The first step is to get in touch with an ISO consultant such as those here at NPT Management Systems. Navigating the ISO certification process without expert assistance can be very difficult; an experienced consultant will walk you through the whole procedure, ensuring that you cover all bases and get certified on your first attempt.

  • After an initial consultation, your ISO consultant will help you to review your current business processes and design a quality management system that suits your enterprise. Ideally, the proposed system will fit around your existing processes, requiring minimal upheaval on your part.

  • The next step is to implement your quality management system. Again, a good ISO consultant will assist with this, ensuring that the new system is properly integrated at every step of your business's processes.

  • Once your ISO-compliant quality management system is in place, your ISO consultant will help you to choose and liaise with a UKAS-accredited certification body. They will assess your new system and, if all standards are met, award you ISO 9001 certification.

The above process also applies to other ISO standards such as ISO 14001 and ISO 27001. If you would like to achieve any form of ISO certification for your business, contact NPT Management Systems and arrange your free consultation now.
