We’ll collect details of the areas that already do so we can create your bespoke management system for you in our smart online hub, Atlas. And everything else will be documented in a user-friendly report for you to review and access any time.

Stage 2: Getting up to Standard

Now it’s time to make any necessary changes. Armed with your gap analysis report on Atlas, you can discover what non-conformities need to be addressed before our consultant checks everything’s up to Standard. With handy reminders set for you within Atlas and editable templates at your fingertips, you’ll easily keep on top of compliance and make sure all the records you need are in place to achieve certification.

Stage 3: Getting ISO certification

An ISO auditor will check you’ve addressed any gaps correctly and that you’re following the documented processes. Once everything is in place, you’ll be recommended for certification. Your new certificate and certification marks will be ready to download from Atlas. Congratulations!

Ongoing verification

To maintain the validity of your certification, your documented processes and procedures must be checked on an annual basis.

External audits will therefore be carried out by us around the anniversary of your certification date. This will help us to verify your continued compliance with the ISO Standard.
