Clear Quality are professional ISO consultants based in South Yorkshire, but operating nationally. We provide support and advice with the implementation of quality management systems. This includes training, internal audits and transitions to comply with the new 9001:2015 standards.
ISO, more formally known as the International Organisation for Standardization, describes the set of guidelines and certifications that every professional service should maintain. These ensure top quality products, services and safety standards throughout not just the UK, but the world. This makes national trade and work services more efficient, as well as ensuring the quality and reliability of international trade. There are standards that cover every area, from food safety to quality management systems (QMS). Clear Quality understand that it can be hard to navigate and understand them, let alone come up with a concrete plan to achieve accreditation, but that’s why we’re here.
We have a team of expert ISO consultants in Yorkshire that know the guidelines inside-out. We have worked with a range of different sized businesses; whether you are completely new to this or are an established company looking for a re-assessment for the 9001:2015 certification, our friendly and helpful staff are available to you.
ISOs can seem daunting, particularly when thinking about the auditor inspections. However, they are not there to trap you. Once you understand the standards, it is much easier to recognise the benefits they provide and how they can support your business. Implementing a QMS, for instance, can provide structure and ease to a workplace, helping your company run more efficiently and smoothly. Not only does it make for happier employees, it makes for happier customers. Clear Quality are ISO 9001 consultants and specialists. They can help you understand any ISOs, access your current QMS, for instance, and the areas in which it could be even more effective.
Our team offer guidance and support throughout the process, whichever standard you are targeting. We help you understand the requirements of each, from the ISO 9001 to the ISO 14001, and assess your business, working out what you’re already achieving and the places to target. This includes what resources you have, the effectiveness of your management systems, your time, skills and budget. We create a bespoke, concrete plan and help you implement it in your workplace, even aiding the writing of health and safety policies. Our aim is always the same: to support you in any way we can, taking the stress out of ISO and allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a safer, more efficient workplace and business.
Currently, one of the important changes in the standards is the transition from the 9001:2008 to the ISO 9001:2015. The new version has a greater emphasis upon risk-based thinking than the 2008, as well as a higher-level structure that enables easier integration with other management systems. In September 2018, businesses with the 9001:2008 will lose accreditation. The huge number of companies requiring the update puts auditors in short supply; last-minute is not an option. With Clear Quality, you can begin the process now by contacting one of our team and arranging a face-to-face, no obligation meeting. This ensures that you won’t lose your accreditation or the custom it brings.
We have a guide to each ISO standard that covers a huge range of industries from the 9001:2015 QMS standard to the Occupational Health and Safety ISO 18001. We even offer our ISO consultancy to the aircraft space and defence industry with the AS9100 standard. Whatever you require, get in touch, explore the website and discover Clear Quality’s effective, friendly team that can help you move towards accreditation today.
