ISO Certification is a seal of approval from a 3rd party body that a company runs to one of the internationally recognised ISO management systems. The certification can be used to tender for business as a proof of a company’s credibility but also to install confidence in the potential client that you will keep your promises.

ISO certification is a statement to your stakeholders, employees and senior management that the business wishes to operate to a set framework in order to achieve its company objectives. Be this customer satisfaction objectives, production objectives or environmental objectives etc. By setting yourselves the task of maintaining an external certification you are proving the company’s commitment to these objectives as well as increasing the credibility and customer confidence in the brand / service or product.

For example by running a quality management system, a company can stay in control of its processes and procedures, ensure if anything does go wrong it is rectified quickly, efficiently and to the satisfaction of the customer. It can also ensure a smooth line of communication between employees, suppliers and customers at all times.

Many public and private sector tenders request ISO certification as either a pre-requisite to moving to the next stage or as a filter to remove companies from the tender process. By achieving the ISO certification that your customers give weight to, ensures that you are on a ‘level playing field’ with your potential competitors and improves your chances of successfully tendering. Many companies we work with report a major internal efficiency improvement which allows them to achieve greater results both in a sales and operational capacity.

ISO 9001 is a quality management system that can be integrated into any business. It is focused on ensuring the business delivers a consistent level of quality to its customers by having well defined and regularly reviewed processes and procedures. The system fully integrates within the existing business procedures and becomes part of the culture within the organisation. Eventually a business will not perform a task to conform to the ISO 9001, it will perform the task for the good of the business. The system covers eight main business principles which are:

1)Customer focus

2) Leadership

3) Involvement of people

4) Process approach

5) System approach to management

6) Continual improvement

7) Factual approach to decision making

8) Mutually beneficial supplier relationships

ISO 14001 is an environmental management system that can be integrated into any business. The main focus of an environmental management system is to reduce costs, reuse resources and if unable to reuse, recycle as much as possible. It forces a company to be aware of and control the aspects of the business which have an environmental impact. It can highlight areas within the business that have high consumption and / or wastage therefore leading to cost savings, and in certain industries ensure the company is maintaining its legal and regulatory requirements.

As it’s nearly impossible to expect a company to be 100% environmental friendly, the system is focused on encouraging a business to either reduce the use of raw materials or if this is not possible to maintain the usage of these materials on an on-going basis. The system allows the company to set their own targets therefore allowing you to create achievable objectives without compromising the general day to day activities of the business.

An ISO 27001 information security management system is a systematic and pro-active approach to effectively managing risks to the security of your company’s confidential information. The system promotes efficient management of sensitive corporate information, highlighting vulnerabilities to ensure it is adequately protected against potential threats. It encompasses people, process and IT systems. An ISO 27001 certification can be achieved by any business of any size, in any given sector, which is looking to increase and enhance the company’s security of its data.
