Customers are becoming increasingly quality-conscious. They frequently expect suppliers to pro-actively comply with the highest product and service standards. If you complete tender oppurtunities on a regular basis you will often be asked if you have a certified quality management system like ISO9001 in place, and increasingly, a certified environmental management system like ISO14001. They also want this information up-front, in addition to being assured that your company will continue to meet their needs now and in the long term.
How Can Your Business Become Certified?
To gain accreditation or certification, you will need to appoint a UKAS Registered Certification body, such as SGS UK Ltd or LRQA Lloyds Registrar. These certification bodies will independently audit your management systems against the requirements and clauses of international standards. Once satisfied, you will receive certification.
How Can NDC Help?
NDC's' team of specialists understand the certification process and its requirements. We can work alongside you to prepare for certification / assessment and can support you to maintain compliance for re-certification.
We’ll conduct a gap analysis of your existing top level policies, documentation and processes to identify your existing strengths, omissions or areas of weakness. We’ll provide this information in a detailed report with recommendations.
Once you have had time to implement the recommendations, we will conduct a full internal audit against the standard’s requirements. We will again provide you with a detailed report and work with you to address any aspects of your operations that need to be developed prior to your third party audit.
