When you need a new ISO system creating from scratch
Reading an ISO Standard core document can be a daunting prospect. Trying to apply the dense and challenging theory of the standard to the daily needs of your business can be even worse.
We have many years of experience in the construction of ISO-compliant, concisely-written documents, matched to the type of business you are operating. We’ve worked in a wide variety of industries and have a long history of managing the certification of businesses while keeping the disturbance of certification on your day to day business to a minimum.
Writing well structured, compliant systems and helping you to gain certification is our business. Why not let us generate and manage your approval, like these companies did?
ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, Quality and Environmental Management
One-LUX designs, develops and manufactures a range of components for emergency lighting. One-LUX approached us to assist them in gaining ISO 9001 Quality Management System certification, and have subsequently approached us to assist them to gain ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification. In both cases we have written the full documented systems, and assisted One-LUX to implement them.
One-LUX are certified by BSi Ltd.
ISO 17020, Accredited Inspection Body
Skyform Limited is based in Glasgow and already holding ISO 9001 and 14001 needed accreditation from UKAS against ISO 17020 to cover independent inspection of windfarm related equipment.
On initial analysis it became clear that the existing management system documentation was outdated. We agreed with Skyform to update their existing systems and add the extra controls and procedures needed to bring them in line with the requirements of ISO 17020. We amended the required documentation, introducing an integrated management system meeting ISO 9001, 14001, 17020 and OHSAS 18001, and assisted Skyform through the accreditation process. The company sucessfully gained accreditation on their first attempt.
Skyform are certified by SGS and accredited by UKAS.

Mark Sutton Non-Ferrous
ISO 9001 Quality Management System
Mark Sutton Non-Ferrous is a perfect example of a small business using the achievement of ISO9001 to access larger market opportunities. As producers of cast metal items, a classic small foundry, they approached customers who were highly impressed by their production values, pricing, and quality, but the absence of a quality standard effectively barred them from trading. “Let us know when you’ve got it, and we can do business”, they said.
Proprietor Mark Sutton was daunted by the possible challenges and cost of approval. Would this tie up his business and precious time in unnecessary and complicated paperwork, and pointless procedures?
Mark approached Colin Brown of ISO Consultants, whose earliest business experience was on the factory floor of a major Nottingham manufacturer. He understood how to apply ISO9001 in a small manufacturing business setting without cutting corners, yet not over-complicating matters in pursuit of an inflated fee. Understanding manufacturing meant that Colin could design a quality management system that was simple, straightforward, and relevant.
“Colin did it all” said Mark, even down to sitting in during the inspection. He now has two major opportunities, both customers asking him “how’s the ISO approval gone?”, and “let us know as soon as you’ve got it”. Certainly encouraging signs.
Mark confesses that he saw the spend required, although modest, as something of a risk, but his main barrier was ignorance of how simple the approval process was, and how both consultant and assessor were “on his side”, rather than out to get him.
So, Mark Sutton Non-Ferrous and a perfect example of how, although appearing daunting from the outside, gaining ISO9001 approval is relatively pain-free, and can open up new opportunities for a small business.
