Step 2 – Implementing ISO 9001 

Systems & Working Practices Assessment

  2. We will meet with your organisation’s team to understand your business
  3. Organisational processes will be Identified & documented
  4. A variance analysis will be conducted to identify where you comply or do not comply with ISO 9001
  5. Guidance will be given on how best to integrate ISO 9001 within your current systems & working practices
  6. If required, working with your team we will evolve processes suited to your organisation and make “benchmarking” recommendations
  7. We will then begin working on your Quality Management System to bring it in line with the requirements.

Creating Your Quality Management System

  1. Designated members of your team will be receive training on the use of the IssoSmart Cloud QMS Management system from an an ISO expert consultant which will provide all the documentation needed to comply with the ISO standard or standards being targeted
  2. IssoSmart includes a manual, user guide, procedures, forms & registers
  3. Our consultants will providing coaching on its practical use to enable your organisation to build its own system or let RKMS do all the work for you
  4. When RKMS receive instructions to create the entire QMS, we work closely with your team, then plan, timeline & organise all ISO 9001 QMS project implementation actions
  5. We encourage meaningful input from your implementation team that is so important in gaining “buy in” for the new system to ensure a smooth assimilation into your organisation
  6. All requisite ISO 9001 documentation is then developed to create the quality management system (QMS)

Step 3 – ISO 9001 Certification

  1. 4 months after the new QMS became operational in your organisation, an a consultant will visit once more to carry out thorough internal audits on your processes and procedures to ascertain if the system / staff are working effectively in accordance with ISO 9001
  2. We will then hold a review with senior management to consider the findings from the audits which identify deviations from the ISO 9001 standard which need to be rectified
  3. After the new system is deemed in compliance, we arrange for an external assessment of your QMS to be carried out by an assessment organisation certified by UKAS
  4. Once the assessment body are satisfied that your QMS complies with ISO 9001, an official certificate of registration will be awarded which can be used to inform existing clients, identified in tenders and promoted to prospective customers
  5. Key members of your team will also receive Lead Auditor training which confers a the regulated Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance Level 3 Award in Effective Auditing and Inspection (RQF)

Selecting An ISO 9001 Consultant - Things To Consider

A Good ISO 9001 Consultancy Delivers Quality Management Systems With Real Benefits

The fundamental reason for hiring a firm of proven ISO 9001 consultants is to reduce the time it takes to implement all the actions required to achieve certification. Good ISO 9001 consultants will do this will ensure that you avoid tricky pitfalls by providing the expert assistance you need to achieve ISO 9001 certification in a very timely way. They cut out unnecessary activity and steer a quick path to your certification

A good ISO 9001 consultancy firm will provide clear guidance regarding the detailed criteria and types of evidence that auditors from the certification body will seek out for by leading you through a step-by-step implementation programme. Good ISO 9001 consultants will remove the burden from your employees by recommending optimal solutions, conducting all the analysis required, training your staff and preparing all requisite documentation.

ISO Consultant Pitfalls!

Before you engage any ISO 9001 consulting service, it is always prudent to conduct due diligence first. Why? Well, a firm may claim be a cost effective ISO 9001 consulting service. However in reality, they may know very little about doing this type of work or possess the necessary credentials or experience to back their claims up.

Secondly, if the consultancy is doing all the work by themselves without the involvement of your staff, the system documents will not reflect your actual business needs. So, after the consultant has stopped working for you, your staff will have no idea how to maintain the process and documents. The documents won’t be usable in your business and your staff may reject laid down processes.

What Should You Look For In A Quality Management Service?

Track Record

Who have they worked for? What kind of projects have they worked on? Does the ISO 9001 consultant make case studies of their work available? And are they happy for you to contact their clients to check them out?

ISO 9001 Consultancy Practice Credentials

In your due diligence research process, check out whether the ISO 9001 consulting service themselves hold ISO certifications.

Expertise Of Individual Consultants

Check the background of individuals that would work on your project. Are they a registered auditor with the International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA)? How many jobs have they done? For what type of organisation?

Tailored Service

Spending money on a standard off the shelf “cut and paste” solution will provide little benefit for your company if it has no relevance to your business and your employees cannot manage the new system. Ask yourselves these questions. Does the consultancy understand my business? Do the consultants use language my staff can understand? Will they adapt their solutions to suit the exact needs of my organisation or business?

ISO 9001 Consultant – Cost Effective Certification

Some companies go for the lowest cost option when selecting a consultant. However, more often than not, this decision ends up costing them more in the long run. You are right to obtain a competitive cost price for consultancy services in order to get the best ISO 9001 certification cost. But remember, the value that a good ISO 9001 consultant brings will far outweigh the modest cost premium to engage their services.

Cheap consultancies are usually very low cost for any number of reasons like:

  • they are new to the market
  • they don’t have enough work
  • they don’t have the right experience, track record and expertise
  • they may not have a good reputation

At the end of the day, the reason you are employing an ISO 9001 consultant is to save your time and provide you with a meaningful quality system that will enable you to delight more customers, grow your business or reach more service users, improve profits and return on investment.
