The Process The Process

Becoming certified is simple and can be broken down into four basic steps.


Your dedicated Assessor will be in touch to set the scene and get you thinking about how best to communicate and involve others so you can achieve certification in record time.


There’s no pressure for the first ‘Stage 1 Assessment’; many are surprised what they already have in place following this visit.

We’re not allowed to provide consultancy – so as to remain impartial – but the template toolkit we have developed makes certification achievable with no previous experience.


When you’re ready, your Assessor will visit again for your ‘Stage 2 Assessment’ where you’ll be told the result on the day.

Once our compliance team have reviewed the report, we’ll confirm your certification. You’ll then be sent your certificate, alongside those important logos. Our marketing team is also on hand to help you spread the news about your achievement.


ISO 9001 is so revered because of its requirement for continuous improvement, which involves a commitment to being assessed every 12 months.

Benefits of certification Benefits of certification

ISO 14001 is a tried and tested approach to demonstrate your commitment to reducing your environmental impact. It helps reduce waste and costs, whilst increasing profits.

  • Impress existing clients
  • Employee engagement

Benefits of Implementing Multiple Standards Benefits of Implementing Multiple Standards

Your business could benefit from completing multiple certifications at the same time. Here’s how:

  • Improve efficiency

    There is one management system. If you're implementing one standard, the process of the second is more streamlined.

  • Reduce time on site

    The information of each standard can overlap. Your auditor can tick off duplicate process, reducing time spent with your organisation.

  • Keep costs down

    It can be more cost effective to do a second certification at the same time because of the commonality across the standards.

Cost Cost

The cost of your ISO 14001 certification will be quoted on a fixed fee basis, reducing your worry about additional costs.

Expert support every step of the way

We understand that certification can appear daunting. Our experts are here to make sure that the process is as smooth as possible and that you gain maximum benefits.

To keep everything running smoothly, you’ll receive the following:

  • a Letter of Commitment once you start proceedings
  • an Accessor, who’ll stay with you throughout the process
  • an Account Manager to answer all of your questions
  • free template toolkits and professional online training

How your quote is calculated

The cost of certification will depend on:

  • your organisation’s total size
  • the sector you operate in
  • the number of locations you operate from
