Getting started with a UKAS ISO certification: Why should you invest?
Wondering about UKAS accredited ISO certifications, whether to invest and how it could help your business? We are here to guide you through the certifications and help you get started.
To be certified to an ISO standard, a company must follow the requirements set out in that standard.
ISO certification certifies that a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardisation and quality assurance.
It does not have to cost a fortune
The process can seem daunting for businesses just starting out. We often hear concerns about the costs involved with certification and what it could mean in the long-term.
We are proud to serve a range of organisations across the UK through affordable payment options. We offer packages from just £85/month and all certifications are delivered by our lead auditor, Mark Henderson.
Benefits of UKAS certification
UKAS certification guarantees your ISO certificate will be recognised by all organisations. The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation body for the United Kingdom. UKAS is responsible for determining, in the public interest, the technical competence and integrity of organisations such as those offering testing, calibration and certification services.
Improve efficiency and profit margins, win and retain business and stand out from competitors.
