As we've mentioned previously, NPT Management Systems have a well-established reputation as the leading ISO 9001 consultants for the UK marine sector. That reputation has continued to grow, and we're helping more and more companies within this industry to achieve ISO 9001 certification.

One of our most recent marine sector clients to earn ISO 9001 accreditation is David Store Navigational Management. Located just outside Romsey, Hampshire, DSNM are described as "the preferred navigational management service provider within the superyacht industry". Given that industry's high demand for impeccable attention to detail and outstanding customer service, it was vital for DSNM to choose an ISO 9001 consultant with a proven track record.

That's why they turned to NPT - with our marine sector experience, our track record for delivering tailor-made quality management systems, and our ISO 9001 certification success rate, we were the perfect fit.

From the outset, it was clear that the challenge would be creating a QMS (Quality Management System) that would immediately fit in with the company’s well-established procedures and high standards. To achieve this, we worked with David Store Navigational Management for a number of days in order to process map their ‘as is’ process. We then used our knowledge as quality management consultants to implement a quality management system that would achieve ISO 9001 certification.

We are proud to announce that David Store Navigational Management has now been awarded ISO 9001 registration from BSI, having passed their stage 1 and stage 2 audit with ZERO non-conformances. Here's what their Fleet Director Martin Amy had to say about this achievement:

"We chose to work with NPT Management Systems as they had current experience within the marine sector, they had local offices, and they were willing to work to our tight deadline toward achieving ISO 9001. The support and service from NPT Management Systems was excellent; we had clear communications and training to enable us to adapt our existing processes to meet the requirements of ISO 9001. We plan to continue our relationship with NPT Management Systems as consultants to assist us in developing and maintaining our QMS."
