Preparing for certification can be more straightforward than you think
Buy a copy of the Standard and familiarise yourself with the requirement.
Research the wealth of information available, both published and web based, that can help you navigate and implement the Standard.
Senior management commitment and involvement is crucial – they decide on the business strategy that needs to be supported by the management system.
Look to work with an external consultant to assist with both defining your strategy as well as the actual implementation.
Establish a dedicated team to develop and implement the management system – they may require training to equip them with Standard specific knowledge.
Look at our training courses to find out how we can help.
Your management system should document all of your organisation’s policies and processes for managing its activities.
Establishing process performance monitoring, identifying areas of weakness, analysing problems and implementing continual improvement measures allow you to focus on customer and business needs.
Procedures describing the key processes of your organisation will help you to establish a culture of best practice within your organisation.
Effective communication and appropriate training are key to successful implementation, to ensure that the whole organisation is working in accordance with your procedures.
Keep controlled records, so that you can demonstrate how effective your management system is.
After your internal audit, conduct a management review and ensure any corrective actions are fulfilled to ensure its continuing suitability and effectiveness.
Continual improvement is central to the main objectives behind implementing any management system, and its effectiveness depends in part on working with a certification partner who understands the importance of continually looking for opportunities to refine and improve your business operations.
We have an enviable record for customer satisfaction – but don’t just take our word for it; visit our testimonials page to find out what our clients have to say about our auditing style!
A “pre-assessment” will provide you with a preliminary evaluation of your management system, enabling you to identify opportunities for improvement and potential non-conformances before beginning the accredited certification process.
On successful completion, we’ll issue a certificate of registration, clearly outlining the scope of your certification.
Our certificates carry the UKAS “Crown and Tick” logo – essential if your certificate is to be recognised by clients, partners and other stakeholders.
Your Alcumus ISOQAR auditor will carry out annual audits for on-going conformance, and support your continual improvement activities.
