ISO 9001 UKAS Certification
Sole Proprietor or Multinational, finding a route to ISO 9001 Certification is a minefield – beware of anybody telling you it doesn’t need to be “UKAS” – government warning
At QMUK we
re-invent the wheel
Removing the Nonsense
With a Pragmatic approach, our consultants interpret the ISO 9001 standard for you, using your specific sector knowledge to create the best fit Mgt System for you.
Our goal is to rationalize procedure content & simplify your system
Our process to achieving guaranteed UKAS ISO 9001 Certification is well trodden, simple, robust & as follows:
Initial meeting to gain knowledge of your organization
We will explain the whole process, remove the mystery & hopefully any apprehension as well, gathering enough information on your operations & business needs to go away and draft a compliant Mgt System.
Draft ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS)
Your consultant will produce & email an ISO 9001 documented system specific to you for review.
Management System Completion
During the second visit, your consultant will fully explain the system to you & agree on any changes you need. You will be advised of any gaps you have to the requirements, advised & helped to best fill for your business.
Assistance in implementation
For larger organizations, there will be visits to coordinate & maintain momentum towards ISO 9001 UKAS Certification. For all companies, there will be continuous & free support by email & telephone.
Internal Audit of system & training of auditor/s
We will audit all aspects of your company to ensure your system is working for you & your people are effectively working within it. At this time someone from your company will be trained to conduct your future internal audits, leaving you self-sufficient with no need to pay for our services again! The audit can be seen as a “dummy run” prior to the formal UKAS ISO 9001 Assessment.
Finalise Quality Management System
Should our audit identify areas for improvement we will revise your Mgt System as required & assist in the application for your Ext Assessment by a UKAS Approved Cert Body.
Representation/Support during UKAS Assessment
The UKAS approved body will not be there to interrogate you; they will merely be looking for evidence that you are compliant with your own system & the ISO 9001 standard itself. This process can be daunting to those experiencing it for the first time – fear of the unknown. Your consultant will use their experience to allay those fears & help you point your assessor in the direction of the evidence they are seeking. ISO 9001 Programme duration is normally 3-9 months and is dependent on the size & complexity of your business/organization. We have fast-tracked to 30 days, but that is exceptional. Multiple ISO Certifications can easily be achieved simultaneously; rationalizing documentation content & minimizing consultation fees. Maintenance: We offer a full range of services if required & including, Internal Auditing, System Revision, and Training etc.
