About Us

Who IS ISO Quality Services Ltd?

Our Story

ISO Quality Services was founded by Chairman Peter Appleton back in 2000 and today is an award-winning family run business with the support of wife Susan and daughters Debbie and Jennifer.

Peter originally founded the company in Dublin before turning the focus to the UK in 2013.  At this time, Peter acted as MD, Business Development Manager and Auditor all rolled in to one.  Over the past two decades we have grown and now consist of more than 30 team members to include our office-based team in Worcester and Business Associates who are situated throughout the UK.

We are passionate about other organisations whether that’s putting ISO at the heart of a business or continuing our ongoing charity work for charities like Midlands Air Ambulance, Worcester Foodbank and St Richards Hospice.

Please take a look at our Case Studies for comments from our clients.

We understand that the implementation of an ISO standard can sometimes be viewed as a long and laborious process, however with ISO Quality Services Ltd. you will achieve certification within 6-8 weeks. We work with you and the rest of the work force to ensure the systems are incorporated fully into the business in the most time effective way. By ensuring we understand your organisation, the way you are structured and the current systems in place we keep your business and its success at the forefront of our minds at all times.

How We Work

One of the first steps in your Management System transition or implementation project is to compare your current systems to the requirements of the ISO / BS standards. On receiving your instructions, we will arrange for one of our senior assessors to spend some time with you to undertake an in depth analysis of the activities of your business that directly affect the required standard. A detailed action plan for the entire project is then drawn up and agreed.

We then leave you in peace to continue with your normal activities while we prepare your Manuals and all other relevant documentation. These documents are then presented and explained to you and any non compliance remedial action is verified. You will then be presented with your ISO / BS certificate, manuals, logos and your registration number. We can also provide you with decals for company vehicles and we offer a marketing pack so you can promote your achievement.

The Certification process takes approximately six weeks from initial assessment. Once certified you are provided with on-going telephone/email support.

The standard is then monitored by our auditing partner, who will conduct a support visit after six months and the validation audit annually.
