The ISO 15489 framework can help your business reap the benefits of enhanced records management. These include meeting your legal obligations for accurate storage and retrieval. It will also improve accountability and transparency by ensuring you allocate responsibilities to the right people in your organisation.
Implementing the ISO 15489 Record Management System is particularly important for businesses that deliver record management services. It will help you improve your management processes and design more efficient record keeping systems. It will even strengthen your auditing and training.
Records management is not just about how you store physical and digital records. It encompasses all record keeping activities and takes account of the value of the records kept.
Our expert consultants will make the ISO 15489 certification process as straightforward as possible for you. This includes helping your business make any necessary changes to its processes.
Our 3-stage certification process ensures you get the help you need at every step. We can even create your Records Management System manual for you, saving you time and money.
Once you have achieved ISO 15489 certification you will need to pass an audit each year. This will ensure your business continues to benefit from improved Records Management. Your first audit will be one year after you receive your certificate.
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.
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.
