Our Experts can also assist with Training and Implementation of your new Business Management System, with a focus on minimising resistance and maximising effectiveness, adding value to your business. We can also assist in the maintenance of your Certification through conducting your internal audits and addressing any issues raised along the way, leaving you to focus on your core business.
The second step is developing and implementing your new or improved system documentation and integrating it within your business. There are certain implementation activities that are required prior to Certification, including, a full internal audit, perform an effective Management Review, set your Business Objectives and Targets, Risk Assessment etc.
- Size and complexity of the organisation
- Number of sites and locations
- Number of different processes
- Existing documentation

In most cases, we will visit your business, at no cost to you, and provide a fixed quotation.

In order to maintain your certification, you will be required, as a minimum to have 2 annual surveillances to ensure you are still successfully implementing your system within the business.
After this 3 year cycle, you will then need to be re-certified. This will consist of another stage 2 audit and 2 surveillances. The stage 1 audit doesn’t need to be conducted again providing there has been no change to your documentation or upgrade to new standards.
Opportunities for Improvement (OFI) are an observed raised during the audit. These observations may prove beneficial toward making your system more effective. Formal, written responses are usually not required; however, if you concur, effective actions should be applied. It is the Auditor’s discretion as to which, if any, OFIs will be reviewed at the next surveillance.
Larger organisations usually already have a Quality Manager(s), Risk Manager(s), etc. These roles can often incorporate the role of looking after the business Management System. Likewise, their workload may also be in excess and decide to outsource their internal audits to ISO Certification Experts.
They are also recognised by JAS/ANZ Accredited Conformity Assessment Bodies in the event that you may wish to go on and register with them as an auditor.
Our courses cover the local, national, statutory rules and regulations and sector-specific standards covering your country of origin.
Once your course is successfully completed the next step to obtain personal Certification will involve up to 4 Observer Audits/Witness Skill Activities (depending on your experience) by a JAS-ANZ witnessed auditor or equivalent.
Our courses are ISO Certified so are recognised both nationally and internationally.
The next step is to contact a CAB and register your interest with them, we can assist and/or point you in the right direction. They will then probably require you to join an audit team to enable them to assess your competency and further build up your audit log. (this may need to be on your own time, like work experience). They will then conduct witness audits on you before they allow you to lead an audit or conduct one by yourself.
We can also offer ISO Personal Certification which will assist with proving competency to the CABs as it involves peer reviews by a JAS-ANZ witnessed auditor whilst you conduct up to 4 audits. If ISO Personal Certification interests you, let your facilitator know and they will mentor you through the process.
Once you have registered we will need to verify your email address and your identification, a scanned copy of your driving licence if possible or similar. Once that has all been completed you will be ready to get started. Your facilitator will also make contact and welcome you and have a chat about your course.
Unfortunately we are unable to apply any credit to your course unless the qualifications have been completed through us.
We are required as part of our ISO Certification to ensure all our courses and online training platforms are secure and we can confirm the identity of the user.
Please be assured all your personal details are not shared with anyone and the only person who will see these is your facilitator.
