All customers who wish to achieve UKAS accredited certification to any ISO Management System Standard should purchase a copy of the standard.
First Time Audit
This type of audit is recommended for customers who have never been involved in any of the aspects of Management System Implementation and Auditing.
Sometimes, customers are unsure about how much support they may require before seeking certification to one or more ISO standards. After your initial enquiry, your designated account handler will get in touch for a chat to find out which audit package would be most appropriate for your circumstances. After gathering some company details, we will issue a quote based on your requirements. This may include one or more of our audit support services such as gap analysis, internal as well as transition training and the supply of templates. Your dedicated audit team will guide you through the assessment process to ensure that you are ready for the final stage of your certification audit. Rest assured we are here to help you every step of the way.
Fast Track Audit
This audit may be suitable to clients who have already implemented the chosen management system standard or who have used the services of a consultancy and are now ready for the certification assessment.
We will quote for the certification audit and our customers have the option of turning Stage 1 into a Gap Analysis on the day of the assessment, if the auditor feels that more work needs to be done before the client is ready for Stage 2. Clients will then purchase another stage 1 further down the line before proceeding to stage 2. This flexibility ensures that the customers will only pay for a Gap Analysis, if it becomes evident that they need one. Organisations and businesses who are confident that they will correct any non-conformances within the mandatory 12 week period, may not need a Gap Analysis.
If you have already been audited to one or more ISO standard but would like to change certification body, we can help with a speedy and low cost transfer service. All you have to send us is your current certificate, audit report including any information relating to the correction of any previous non-conformances (if any) and any changes in staff and/or site numbers. Please contact our office for further details.
