YEARS IN BUSINESS

Our Mission

Back in 1993, the founders of QMS pioneered a service that combined ISO consultancy and certification in a single, affordable process. 

We believe in a ‘Keep it Simple’ approach which creates clear, straightforward ISO management systems that provide genuine support for businesses.

Since then, we’ve developed our services to help thousands of organisations implement a range of management systems and certifications. We are now one of the UK’s leading ISO certification bodies, having helped our clients put in place over 30,000 management systems.
