ISO 9001
Quality Management System

Why choose an ISO 9001 Quality Management System?

In many organisations, especially those in the public sector a UKAS ‘UK Certification Service’ certified ISO 9001 is a mandatory requirement or an important success criterion in the supplier selection process.

Certification will put you ahead of your competitors.

What the UK Accreditation Services (UKAS) say:

“An evaluation body certified by UKAS has proved that it complies with best practice and is competent to deliver a consistently reliable, impartial and accurate service which meets the appropriate, internationally-recognised standard. By choosing a UKAS-certified supplier, not only can you be assured that you are receiving the most appropriate service for your needs but you will also discover that the UKAS ‘symbol’ on your documentation brings with it national and international recognition to your business”.

Certification to ISO 9001 will demonstrate to your customers and suppliers that your business is running professionally. It proves that you continually strive to improve business processes and that you monitor and control service standards.

Many businesses are not securing contracts with Councils, Local Government, large corporate and construction companies due to a lack of certification. This has resulted with smaller unsecured contracts and does not allow them to plan ahead. You don’t want to be excluded for quoting for large contracts and business opportunities because your company does not have this important certification.

Your customers can easily distinguish between properly run companies by selecting an ISO 9001 Certified company. Your customers will use this certification to define who they should use for their supplier requirements. Certification to ISO 9001 will give your customers peace of mind that you are a professionally run business who looks after the Quality of its staff, suppliers and products.

Achieving ISO 9001 will enable you to secure longer term contracts and plan your long term business.

How ISO 9001 Certification has helped our customers:

‘Before receiving the UKAS ISO certification it was virtually impossible to even be considered for the larger jobs, let alone get anywhere near the short list for big tenders. But since becoming ISO 9001 certified we have never been busier and won so much new business, leaving us with a pipeline of quotes to keep us busy month in month out’.
