ISO Standard Upgrade Consultancy
ISO Standard Upgrade
ISO Standards are reviewed at least every five years, ensuring they remain up to date and globally relevant. You are required to transition to the newly issued standard within a specified timeframe, usually three years, in order to remain certified. We can support you through the re-certification process within three months.
Whilst you might be tempted to put this process off, these changes are based on feedback received and are therefore designed to be more relevant and user-friendly.
An example is the replacement of the BS OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety management system by ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety. If you are currently operating under BS OHSAS 18001 you have until 2021 to transition to ISO 45001.
Our approach is simple, hands on and flexible. We will perform a GAP analysis on your business to identify differences between the old and new standards. Our consultant will provide you with a full list of recommendations to help develop your policies and documents in line with the new standard.
At a second visit we will guide you through the process of implementing the recommendations and we can produce a mini manual to document the transition, if required.
Did you Know?
A UKAS Accredited Certification body cannot offer any assistance with the implementation of the ISO Standards and therefore a consultancy organisation such as ourselves is required.
Don't just take our word for itLee Wrigley, Director of Trans-Web, praised ISO Quality Services' consultancy as,
“well planned and executed. The auditor who did the work on site was very good, easy to work with and produced one of the best manuals our assessors had seen; a huge compliment given he travels all over the world.”
