Step 3

Working Practices & Systems Assessment

RKMS will then recommend the actions required to assimilate ISO 9001 inside your organisation, collaborate with your team bring your working practices into alignment with the standard and finally, prescribe suitable bench marking approaches.

Step 4

Building The QMS – Quality Management System

Nominated members of your organisation will learn how to use the IssoSmart Cloud QMS via practical “hands on” tutorials backed up by a comprehensive set of training resources.

Working closely with your staff, an RKMS consultant facilitates the plan and project implementation timeline as well as determining all ISO 9001 project implementation activity required… After this has been finalised, a full array of ISO 9001 documentation is produced to enable the execution of the new quality management system.

Step 5

Acquiring Your ISO 9001 Certification

At about 4 months after introducing the new QMS into your organisation, RKMS will carry out internal audits to ascertain whether or not your organisation’s systems and procedures comply with ISO 9001 standard. Following this, a further management review will be held with consider if any remedial activity is needed.

Then an independent external assessment is carried out by UKAS certified organisation after you are confident that the new quality management system meets ISO 9001. After a successful third party audit, an official 9001 registration certificate is then issued.

ISO 9001 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.
