When you are planning and implementing a quality management system, choosing an accreditation body may be the last thing you think of. However, a good choice can make the process easier. We’ve recommended NQA to clients for a number of reasons:
- Easy to work with.
- Clear pricing (e.g. no hidden travel costs).
- Experience dealing with small businesses.
- Useful guides and blog on their website.
- NQA are a UKAS accredited body.
How to gain ISO 9001 accreditation?
We’ve set out three questions you should ask before considering applying for certification in our guide ISO 9001 made simple. If you’d like support from a consultant like us, it also makes sense to see what our clients say. Here Solar South West share their experience of working with WCS.
Once you’ve decided to go for it, talk to us about your plans and timescale. We’ll help make sure they are realistic. Next, you’ll need a quote from NQA. You may decide to check their offer against other certification bodies.
Chances are, you’ll already be following many of the processes you need, but you may need help documenting those and filling any gaps. However some of our clients are happy to document their processes, but would like us to provide an ‘internal’ auditor to check that they’re all working as planned.
However you decide to proceed, you’ll receive a friendly and supportive service from us.
