ISO Consultancy For The Manufacturing Sector

“MMC has extensive experience in helping manufacturing businesses achieve the necessary ISO standards” 

Engineering and manufacturing firms face a set of highly specific challenges, including complex regulatory requirements, but, whatever the size of an organization, it can benefit from certification to one or more quality management standards.

The International Standards Organisation (ISO) develop standards that when put into place ensure the quality, safety and efficiency of products, services and systems within an organisation.

The ISO standards that we work with that are relevant to Engineering and Manufacturing are:

  • ISO 14001 (Environmental Management)
  • ISO 45001 (Health and Safety Management)
  • ISO 9001 (Quality Management)
  • BS EN 1090 (CE Marking)

Environmental management
is vitally important to Engineering and Manufacturing businesses. The standard covers an organisations environmental management policy and working to the requirements of the ISO 14001 Standard will help to quantify, monitor and control the ongoing environmental impact of your operations. Managing the use of natural resources, energy and waste will also help to improve an organisations corporate image and credibility, helping to win new customers and identify opportunities for cost savings.

Improving occupational health and safety is crucial to an engineering or manufacturing management system ISO 45001 is an international standard for health and safety with requirements that include clear, measurable objectives, and a structured approach to risk assessment around occupational health. Organisations with ISO 45001 certification demonstrate that they operate a best-practice Occupational Health and Safety Management System, resulting in a reduction in the likelihood of accidents and any possible breaches of legislation. As well as increased productivity through less time lost due to injury and illness.

Quality control is important for any industry, but for manufacturing and engineering it is essential. Obtaining ISO 9001 certification demonstrates that an organisation is customer-focused and committed to delivering consistent, quality products. Having ISO 9001 as part of a Manufacturing or Engineering management system will help to streamline processes, improve business performance and drive efficiency in a continuous improvement cycle.
CE & UKCA Marking are regulatory marks which are applied by the manufacturer and are a declaration to both the public authorities and customers that the product fulfils the required levels of health and safety.

To be able to trade within the EU, businesses need to meet the compulsory product safety guidelines required to gain a CE Marking regulatory mark. Now that we have left the EU any product that is for consumption in the UK will need to be marked with a new UKCA mark.
Achieving certification is a strong indication to those within the manufacturing and engineering industries including potential clients, that a business not only maintains its standards to the highest levels but ensures that customer satisfaction is paramount to what it does.

The experienced MMC Consultants work with our clients to help them attain certification in the relevant ISO manufacturing standards and, ISO engineering standards, by assisting them to achieve the highest levels of quality and safety with an effective management system.
