Since 1969 we have provided our clients with an award-winning service based on confidence and trust.
Our UKAS accreditation is a key part of the confidence we can guarantee our clients. Our accredited ISO 9001 certificates all come with the coveted ‘Crown & Tick’ mark, underlining the security that only comes from Government-backed certification.
STEP 1 – PREPARATION
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.
STEP 2 – FIRST ASSESSMENT
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.
STEP 3 – SECOND ASSESSMENT
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.
STEP 4 – ANNUAL ASSESSMENT
ISO 9001 is so revered because of its requirement for continuous improvement, which involves a commitment to being assessed every 12 months.
We’ll contact you to arrange a quotation in plenty of time for you to make a decision. For those with existing certification, we are pleased to offer our Transfer switching service.
WHAT WILL IT COST?
The cost of certification is ultimately determined by factors such as the organisation’s total size, the sector it’s in, and the number of locations they operate from. Regardless of your size, we always provide a fixed fee with no hidden costs to worry about. To make budgeting your ISO requirements a little easier, we offer a monthly payment plan as standard to all registered companies, charities and organisations*. If this option is taken an initial payment of only 20% is required with the balance payable over 10 monthly direct debit payments. Alternatively, if you wish to pay the full fee up front a 10% discount will be applied.
*Credit check is not required subject to confirmation of company registration, minimum 6 months trading history and self-certification of solvency. This option is not available to sole traders due to consumer regulations.
So you can take advantage of things straight away, we’ll provide a Letter of Commitment once you start proceedings. You’ll be introduced to your Assessor, who’ll stay with you throughout the process, along with your Account Manager. By utilising our free template toolkits and professional online training, this approach has allowed thousands to achieve hassle-free certification in just a matter of months.

ISO has updated the core requirements for ISO 9001 with the 2015 revisions of the standard. ISO 9001:2008 certificate holders have three years to transition to the new standard. Call our award-winning team on 0800 404 7007 to find out how to get certified to the latest standard.
As of 15th September 2018 ISO 9001:2008 certificates will no longer be valid.
No, but you’ll need a designated representative or co-ordinator who’ll take responsibility in your organisation.
Don’t worry, our ongoing commitment to you is to make sure you don’t forget it! We’ll be keeping in touch with you to make sure that everything is going well after certification. Then we’ll be in touch 3 months before your audit is due to arrange a visit date.
As a certification company we’re not allowed to because there would be a conflict of interest if we were to certify the work we had done for you. We can however put you in touch with consultants that have previously worked successfully with our clients.
As it’s your organisation, it’s important for you to run the project. We are the certification company, which means that we confirm, on behalf of ISO, that your business conforms to the particular standard and when it does, issue your certificate.
