Why ISO - The Certification Process

Why choose UKAS Accredited ISO Certification in the first place, and how does the process work for my business from start to finish?

Why choose ISO Certification

ISO is a Trusted International Bench Mark

Most organisations and businesses are required to have independently certified ISO systems in order to Tender and Quote on new and often existing business. ISO is a Trusted International Bench Mark which offers confidence to those who have the responsibility of buying in goods and services as part of their everyday job.

There are many good reasons why forward thinking businesses and organisations invest in UKAS Accredited Audit and Certification of their internal Systems.

Whatever reasons you have for requiring auditing or certification services of your ISO management system, you can rest assured that working with QECUK Ltd will help you raise the standard.

Remember even if you are currently with another UKAS certification body, you may wish to change.  This can be done at any point during the certification journey and QECUK can look to take over your certification.

Auditing & certification at your convenience

Some businesses are put off seeking ISO certification because they think it will disrupt their business or they don’t have a physical site.

A simple risk assessment can be completed for any ISO certification audits allowing for the possibility of remote auditing as well as onsite auditing or even a blended approach of both.  This can reduce the overall disruption and improve the efficiencies of audits whilst still meeting the UKAS requirements.
