When you have an ISO certificate but now need approval to a newer standard
At one time getting an ISO 9000 Certificate made you stand out from the crowd and satisfied most customers. But business has moved on, legislation and customer’s demands have changed and now multiple approvals are often necessary – but they can be expensive.
ISO standards overlap, so if you need to gain approval against a new standard you need to make sure that the design of the system takes advantage of that overlap, and that the new system doesn’t repeat those elements already covered in the original system. Certification bodies also need to be managed to make sure that the cost benefits of dual approvals are maximised.
We have managed and designed many Integrated and Dual Approval Systems, including managing the certification bodies to ensure you get the best overall deal. The companies below have benefitted from using us to bring their systems together, so why not contact us and see how we can help you, these companies did, and already have their multiple approvals in place.
