How businesses have benefitted from Standards
"As a young business we were daunted by the prospect of becoming ISO 27001 accredited so we took the decision to seek consultancy from QMS, prior to an audit, and it was the best decision we could have made. The 3 days that we spent with your consultant (Brett) was great. He was enthusiastic, engaging, genuinely interested in our business, and he provided a great deal of insight into how we can evolve our processes to ensure we are operating as securely as possible. We have implemented a lot of his suggestions already and can see the benefits. We would not hesitate is using QMS again in the future for other accreditations."Ben Hancock, Managing Director
Our experience overall was excellent, the process was made simple and easy to understand/ implement. Our Consultant was a credit to QMS and made a daunting process a pleasure. Highly recommend.Ang Burrows, Manager

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 it's 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 processes are being followed and that the necessary changes have been made. Once they are satisfied, you will be awarded your certification.
