The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) is a non-governmental organisation that brings together experts for the purpose of forming standards that aid in innovation and provide solutions on a global level. Located in Geneva, it has established nearly 24,000 standards for organisations since 1947, making it the biggest developer of voluntary organisational standards around the world. It consists of a network of national standards bodies in 165 countries, helping to ensure good practices and promote efficiency and efficacy across different businesses and industries across the globe.
See how we can help you through the process.
Many certification bodies require at least 3 months for the management system to have been running, in order to have enough genuine records to audit.
Achieving an ISO certification indicates that an organisation has employed a globally accepted management system and is in compliance with the best practices. Having this seal of approval serves as an excellent business tender and gives clients the assurance that they are in good hands. Obtaining an ISO standard will not only help a business become more efficient and effective, but also make it more attractive to both existing and potential customers.
Once certified, the certification body will provide a “certification cycle”. This involves re-certification and interim surveillance audits. For example, an ISO 27001 Information Security Management system is usually re-certified every 3 years, with interim surveillance audits every 6 to 12 months from certification.
The cost of implementing a system and achieving certification will depend on a number of factors including which certification house is used, size of company and the starting point. MMC would provide a clear program of work and expenses following an initial client meeting to enable the client to decide how they wish to proceed.
