Technical vs. Keep it Simple
We at ISO Quality Services Ltd what to continue to remove the stigma associated to ISO/BS terminology. Please see below some explanations of some commonly misunderstood terms.
- Controlled Document Register
- A master list of a company’s standard forms, including each form’s individual reference number and date it was issued throughout the company.
- Non Conformance
- When something happens within the business that shouldn’t have happened and once recorded provides an opportunity for improvement.

According to the Forum of Private Business, the main barrier for training in 61% of small businesses is cost. Remarkably one in ten firms claimed to provide no training for its workforce.
Here at ISO Quality Services Ltd we see training as an investment rather than a cost and encourage staff to put forward their training needs at all times. We also understand that some of our clients would benefit from training in relation to their ISO/BS standards; we therefore offer a variety of training courses.
Ensuring that the workforce understands the ISO systems the company runs to and the benefits of it, is imperative to the development of the standard therefore our ½ day employee briefing sessions are ideal to help with the ‘buy-in’ process please take a look at http://www.isoqsltd.com/training/ and drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
ISO Quality Services Ltd are proud to specialise in the implementation and certification of the Internationally recognised ISO and BS EN Management Standards.
