More about third-party auditing

There are many reasons to develop an ISS or BSS. Sometimes there is an external need to measure requirements that the organisation has a duty to fulfill. Other times, organisations want a structured, rigorous framework for maintaining consistent internal performance.

What else does third-party auditing provide?

In addition to developing your standard, we can also produce bespoke training courses to complement your bespoke standards and train your people to carry out the audits too. Documented procedures and templates can be included in a bespoke toolkit.

Who have you performed third-party auditing for?

We have designed and implemented ISS and BSS for clients such as the British Chamber of Commerce, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, The Institute of Export, UKTI and British Institute of Agricultural Consultants.

How long does it take to design and implement an ISS or BSS?

Our experienced Auditors can complete their on-site check in just a few hours. They can also integrate it into a future ISO audit to minimise disruption to your organisation.

How much does developing an ISS or BSS cost?

The bespoke nature of these standards means the cost depends on your unique requirements. We will always provide a fixed fee quote for our work, so you know exactly what the process of developing your standard will entail. Don’t forget to budget for your annual certification fee.
