Helping you win new business

Whatever the size of your business, ISO9001 aims to provide a practical and workable Quality Management System (QMS) for improving all areas of your business.

Achieving ISO9001 certification should not be about establishing a set of procedures that are complicated and difficult to manage. They should be an efficient system that is workable in your company environment. With the right support and the knowledge of your employees, you will end up with a system that will improve all areas of your business.

Implementing an effective and robust ISO9001 QMS will help you to focus on the important areas of your business and improve efficiency. It can also help win new customers, improve the quality of your product or service and support tender opportunities.

Making the certification process as simple and efficient as possible

The NDC scheme was created by talking to customers and developing our procedures based on their needs.

As such we are at the forefront of using a combination of free, easy-to-use, technology and our own cutting-edge platform ISOHub (If you certify with or switch to NDC you will get a free user account and full systems training).

These enable your staff to have real-time collaboration whether they are working on-site, at multiple locations or working from home. Rather than having a lot of time intensive face-to-face meetings, co-workers can share screens, documents, join meetings and stream high-quality video.

Certification is delivered faster, more productively and will give you significant cost savings over the lifetime of your management system.

FAQs

ISO9001 requires your organisation address seven key areas to achieve continual improvement within your Quality Management System:

Context of the organisation. Determining the factors, both internal and external to your business, that affect the quality of your services.

  • Leadership - The ISO9001 standard recognises that an effective Quality Management System depends on the commitment of your organisation’s senior management.
  • Planning - An effective Quality Management System is one that operates on putting in place measures to address both risks and opportunities alike.
  • Support - The standard requires that your business provides adequate resources to operate an effective Quality Management System.
  • Operation - The operation section within ISO9001 describes the work your company must do to develop and deliver goods or services to your customers.
  • Performance evaluation - Clause 9 requires your organisation to measure and analyse your processes, recording the results in order to demonstrate conformity and support continual improvement in quality management across the organisation.
  • Improvement - The final clause in the ISO9001 standard stresses the importance of continual improvement within a business.

These requirements will help your business to successfully implement an effective Quality Management System.

The fact is ISO standards are voluntary. There is no requirement in ISO Standards for you to be externally audited. The ISO simply demand that you evidence that audits take place covering each clause of the standard.

However, having ISO certification demonstrates that your organisation’s quality security management system has been independently audited and meets the requirements of ISO9001 which can benefit your organisation in competitive pitches.

The main aim of ISO9001 is to help you control your organisation’s environmental impact. It does this by implementing a framework of processes that help you to identify, assess, manage and monitor your business’ operations. By following these procedures, you can work towards reducing waste, improving resource efficiency and lowering costs.

ISO9001 has two primary goals:

  • Compliance with laws and regulations: by reaching and maintaining basic legal standards, companies can avoid fines, government intervention and sanctions against their business.
  • Reduce environmental impact: working to ISO9001 can help you develop, implement, and manage your environmental policies. For instance, it can help you plan for all phases of waste reduction from product design to end-of-life recycling.

With the right preparation and a good understanding of what is required for ISO9001, most organisations can expect to achieve certification within 3 to 6 months depending on their size and complexity.

We are at the forefront of using the latest innovations to make the certification process as efficient as possible, therefore increasing the productivity of employees. Our ISO9001 certification service is also designed to deliver significant cost savings over the life span of your quality management system by reducing the number of audit days on site.

By using a combination of free, easy-to-use, technology we enable real-time collaboration whether staff are working on-site, at multiple locations or working from home. Rather than have a lot of time intensive face-to-face meetings co-workers can share screens, documents, join meetings and stream high-quality video to enable real-time collaboration.In general, annual certification will cost £1k-£1.3

ISO (the International Standards Organisation) do not demand or promote UKAS certification. In fact, they recognise and acknowledge that organisations can self-certify, or obtain independent verification to demonstrate that standards are being met.

Non UKAS providers (NDC) help achieve the same objective with less bureaucracy and greater efficiency as they are free to innovate and adapt and work independently of UKAS and the EU.
