Quality Management : Advice and Implementation
Your quality management system will have to be audited by an external body. Across the world there are organisations called Accreditation Bodies in the UK the main one is UKAS. They are responsible for making sure that companies who come to audit your quality management system are qualified to do so – these organisations are known as Certification Bodies.
Grange Consultancy is not a certification body, we’re a Quality Management Systems Consultant, so we can’t award you an ISO 9001 certificate. We can help you with selecting a certification body and would only ever recommend that you work with an accredited one. UKAS have a list of such organisations on their website and you select which certification body you want to work with.
ISO 9001 Certification Consultant
We can help you select the right certification body for your business and we would only recommend UKAS Accredited Certification Bodies ensuring your reputation is protected.
Certification is a two step process – your certification body will visit to review your documentation and plans, and then make any recommendations to be implemented before their next visit. The second visit is a review of how your quality management system is working – reviewing your records and evidence and talking to some of your managers and staff. At this visit presuming there are no major findings they will give a strong indication as to whether you have achieved certification.
