How can we help you today?

Once you have decided on what ISO standard best meets your requirements, I can help project manage the certification process from beginning to end. The support services provided during this process include;

  • Help with selecting a suitable certification body.
  • Help with completing the application to the certification body to ensure that sensible audit durations and costs are agreed.
  • Helping to develop and implement an effective management system that is suitable within the context of your Company.
  • Helping to produce any documentation required by the relevant ISO standard.
  • Carrying out a full internal audit (required by ISO) of your management system to verify compliance to the nominated ISO standard prior to the main certification audit.
  • Helping to close out any non-conformances that are identified by the internal audit.
  • Attending the stage 2 certification audit to ensure that the audit process proceeds as efficiently as possible.

For more information on the certification process, please see the The Road to ISO Certification presentation contained within the downloads section of this website.

‘Internal Audit’ is a key requirement of the ISO standards. Well planned and executed internal audits can identify areas of weakness and opportunities for improvement within your management system. However, for small businesses with limited resource the internal audit process can often get neglected.

As a trained Lead Assessor, I can plan and execute an effective internal audit whilst maintaining a level of objectivity that a small business may not be able to achieve using their own employees.

I currently offer internal auditing services for the following management system standards:

  • AS 9100
  • ISO 9001
  • ISO 14001
  • ISO 45001
  • OHSAS 18001
  • EN 1090

For more information on internal audits, please see the What is Internal Audit presentation contained within the downloads section of this website.

Once you have achieved or already hold ISO certification, I can provide on-going technical support to ensure your management system continues to comply with the relevant ISO standard. This support can be provided via a variety of methods. These methods include;

  • Conference / skype calls to assist with queries regarding your ISO certification and management system.
  • Carrying out internal audits (required by ISO) to identify areas of weakness and opportunities for improvement.
  • Helping to close out any non-conformances that are identified by the internal audits.
  • Helping with Management Review (required by ISO).
  • Helping to set, document and monitor objectives and targets (required by ISO).
  • Liaising with the Certification Body to ensure that your surveillance audits are scheduled correctly.
  • Attending the surveillance audits to ensure that the audit process proceeds as efficiently as possible.
  • Helping to close out any non-conformances identified by the surveillance audit.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should your Certification Body require additional auditor resource.

About

I am an experienced Management Systems consultant based in Oxfordshire and working throughout the UK and Europe.

Acting as both a Consultant and an Assessor, I do in effect, sit on ‘both sides of the table.’ As a Consultant, I assist my clients in implementing a certified ISO management system. As an Assessor representing a number of UKAS accredited notified bodies, I assess organisations' compliance to a number of ISO standards (9001, 14001, 45001) and other recognised standards such as EN 1090.

In my role as a Consultant, I can implement a management system from scratch whilst providing on-going technical support or simply carry out an effective internal audit.

As a qualified Assessor, I have carried out ISO audits throughout Europe at well-known organisations such as Fisher Scientific RSD, Princes Foods, Lyon Seafoods, Cargill Meats, The Crown Estate and Eaton Corporation.

In essence, I can demystify the standards and help implement an accessible management system.
