Updated: Mar 31
Your journey to improving business confidence in partnership with EQAS Certification.
Step 1: Application
Provide the relevant information to accredited certification body, such as EQAS Certification, an independent certification partner with Equal Assurance.
Receive our Proposal from EQAS Certification, with our straightforward fee structure and terms. No lock in contracts.
Accept our Proposal.
For new certifications, receive your Certificate of Application where requested.
Step 2: Achieving an ISO Certification
A pre-certification audit determines your organisation's readiness for certification.
It’s essentially a “test run” of your current system(s).
Our findings raised in a Report, for your action.
All requirements disclosed up-front in our Client Charter: no “black magic” or surprises.
A full audit of your management systems.
Auditor findings are raised in a Report, for your action.
Findings are risk-rated which provides a link to confidence, is contextual to your business, and in line with best practice No more nonconformities!
Independent assurance and appeals committees to safeguard integrity and impartiality in service delivery.
Additional training services can be arranged, if required.
Once we are satisfied there are no outstanding issues that present an unacceptable risk to you or other stakeholders, we will issue your Certificate of Confidence for presentation.
Congratulations, you are now ISO certified.
Step 3: Maintaining Certification
Periodic surveillance audits will typically occur every 12 months, depending on the assurance program(s), your requirements, and your level of risk.
Re-certification audits take place every 1 to 3 years, depending on the assurance program(s), your requirements and your level of risk.
Follow-up audits and special audits are conducted on an “as needed” basis.
So long as we are satisfied there are no outstanding issues that present an unacceptable risk to you or your other stakeholders, we will maintain your Certificate of Confidence.
We're in the Business of Assurance.
Our point of difference is that we are in the business of assurance; certification is the result of assurance, not just the reason for it.
It's important to remember that you and your stakeholders want confidence, and not just a piece of paper that says so.
