Many approach ISO certification with trepidation – they assume it’ll be difficult to obtain, while creating unwanted hassle within the business. It’s not! The reality is, we award thousands of businesses with ISO or OHSAS certification every year, despite them having no prior knowledge or exposure to their chosen standard(s).
Most take on the implementation of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 27001 or OHSAS 18001 on top of their existing job role. Their most common fear is failing the Audit – resulting in no certification. Here we explain our ‘safety net’ to give those considering ISO certification and those working on the implementation of their management systems, the confidence to benefit from the competitive benefits that stem from successful certification.
The Certification Process
The road to ISO and/or OHSAS certification begins with an initial visit – your Stage 1 Audit – with your dedicated local Assessor. This is a relaxed meeting, where the Assessor will gain an understanding of what you’ve already got in place; from established, robust processes already being regularly reviewed, to the more ambiguous business functions which may not be formalised.
The report from your Stage 1 Audit creates an action plan, so you’ll know exactly what needs to be done to meet your chosen standard(s).
This is the perfect opportunity to log into your dedicated Client Area, where helpful fact sheets, videos and downloadable guides are just a few clicks away.

Only when you and your dedicated Assessor believe you’re ready, you’ll be recommended for your formal, Stage 2 Audit. This is key to our guaranteed ISO certification, as we take responsibility if you were to fail.
The good news is that our process works! It’s very rare to fail a Stage 2 Audit; and if you do, you won’t be charged a penny to be re-audited. So, once you’ve obtained your initial quotation from us, you’re safe in the knowledge that what you see, is what you pay.
