With the help of QMS, the certification process can take as little as 45 days to complete
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now its time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
An Auditor must now visit your Organisation to check that the documented processed are being followed and that the necessary changes have been made. Once they are satisfied, you will be rewarded with your certification.
Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.
From the initial consultation to the Accreditation (ISO 9001 :2015), QMS have supported us thoroughly. A very professional group who are both quick to respond and happy to help. The website offers regular updates and a lot of useful tips and examples... A pleasure working with QMS.
Excellent customer service from QMS as a whole from start to finish. ...Our consultant was outstanding. He built a relationship with our company and made what we anticipated to be a stressful situation into a calm, logical and believe it or not, enjoyable time. Would most definitely recommend QMS and [the consultant] will return for future consultancy work and audits. Outstanding!
QMS have been instrumental in helping us through the process of not only achieving but also maintaining our ISO 9001 :2015 and ISO 14001 :2015 standards. We will have no hesitation in using their services to help to achieve ISO 45001 :2018 going forward and the customer support and audit team have been equally helpful and easy to deal with.
[The consultants] were exceptional. They helped me through every step of the way and went through the process in extreme detail. I felt confident and reassured that everything was in place for the company. I would always recommend QMS to any company that is wanting to proceed with their ISO 9001 accreditation. Excellent service and thanks again.
