What affect will Brexit have on ISO Standards?

20 Jul, 2016

On June 23rd the UK voted to leave the European Union. This decision will bring about many changes to our country and our economy over the next few years.

What we don’t know

What we don’t know is the impact that this change will bring to UK businesses and how this will affect their current strategies.

What we do know

  • ISO standards have existed for over 30 years
  • They are internationally recognised
  • They have a worldwide reputation for bringing benefits to help push businesses forward
  • Can help improve tenders and exports
  • Solidify a company’s reputation towards a recognised trademark

We are confident in saying that ISO standards and the part that they play in helping businesses to grow will remain unaffected by the country’s transition from the EU.

The ISO standards have input from all over the world including America, Canada, Russia, China, India, Australia and Europe.

The systems were established to provide globally acceptable business “norms” and are updated on an on-going cycle to make sure they are still aligned with the current business landscape.

As a business who wants to trade in the UK and internationally, your certification is still a main factor in asking other businesses to trust that your business practises are first-rate and externally audited.

ISO standards remain a great way to manage unpredictability and give your business a recognised trademark, which only makes your company more attractive in the market at home and abroad.

Furthermore, there will be no changes to the current standards because of this vote. ISO standards will continue to prove a company’s on-going commitment to quality objectives, environmental targets, and approaching risk management in the future.

Regardless of our position in the EU, these differentiators will remain a consistent and structured approach to help businesses enter new markets and meet customer demand.

If you do require some advice regarding exports and are unsure how ‘Brexit’ could affect your business, then please contact your local chamber to talk with a representative from The Department for International Trade.

For any help understanding your ISO standards and how they might be able to help strengthen your business in this time of unpredictability, please contact us on 01905 670303 or email clientservices@isoqsltd.com.
