Case Studies
Managed ISO Certification

Inspecting a particular aspect of a business that requires refinement for ISO readiness

If you’ve been in business for a while you’ll have developed business processes that work for you.

You’ll have a way of responding to enquiries and processing orders, you’ll know that you need to keep customers happy, and be doing your best to deliver whatever your customer requires.

Gaining an ISO certification may be a requirement of a major customer, or perhaps you want to use the best practice described in an ISO standard to improve your internal processes.

Whatever your motivation, we understand the need to preserve the good practices you’ve developed already, then build on them to reach the requirements described in the standards.

The companies listed below have all come to us as established businesses, making ends meet and their businesses work, but now requiring the additional credibility that independent certification brings. We’ve built a system around their existing working practices, adding where necessary to meet the demands of certification, but keeping the individuality that makes them successful in their particular market.

We are here to enhance and to help, not to interfere and tell you we know better. We’ll start where you are, as we did with the situations described below.

Nobisco Ltd

ISO 14001, Environmental Management, then OHSAS 18001, Health and Safety Management

Nobisco, based in Birmingham, source and stock a large range of catering, packaging, hygiene, janitorial, safety and automotive consumable products. They have held ISO 9001 certification from BSi Ltd for some years but wished to extend their certification to include Environmental Certification to ISO 14001.

They asked us to work with them on the project, and we built and implemented a single integrated management system meeting both standards, gaining certification against ISO 14001 after only a few months. We then worked with Nobisco a year later to add OHSAS 18001 to their approvals.

Microkerf Ltd

ISO 9001, Quality

Since its formation in 1990 Microkerf has become one of Europe’s most diverse suppliers of laser processing and secondary contract services.  Microkerf prides itself on a high level of integrity and professionalism with its clients and suppliers.  By using the latest gas and solid-state laser technology, together with a determination to succeed we have been able to give our clients a highly competitive advantage.

Working with Microkerf’s existing staff we developed a Quality Management System, based on ISO 9001, 2015, assisted in its implementation and completed the required  Internal audits. Microkerf selected BSi Ltd as their certification body, and we worked through the certification with them, gaining certification with no significant findings at the initial visits.
