ISO 9001 Management System Audits

To see how ACT can be of assistance please contact our sales enquiry team on +44(0)1384 447915 to discuss your needs, or alternatively send us an email.

ISO 9001:2008 is recognised as the most commonly used international standard to provide a framework for an effective quality management system (QMS).  The standard was formerly known as ISO 9001:2000, but was updated in 2008.  It has been implemented by approximately a million organisations in 175 countries.

The ISO 9001 standard provides your organisation with a set of standardised requirements that prove internationally that you promote good quality management practices.  Regardless of your organisations activities, size or whether you are public or private sector, the standard helps to consistently achieve customer satisfaction.

ACT Resource provides an independent audit service to assess your management system against ISO 9001 requirements.

You may want to know how well orientated to ISO 9001 your management system is before you start an implementation programme to meet the standard.  ACT Resource can undertake an initial gap analysis audit to obtain a clear and concise picture of the current status of quality in your organisation.  
The audit will include:

  • A review of current management approach/systems adopted by your organisation.
  • An in-depth audit across all areas of quality management, including conformity with the ISO 9001 standard.

You may want to validate the implementation work you have already done before approaching a certification body to confirm conformity.  ACT Resource can conduct a pre-certification audit, planned to give sufficient time to amend non-conforming systems.  The audit would follow a similar pattern to a certification audit but provide opportunity for discussion of any non-conformances found.  The audit would include an assessment of management systems documents, workplace observations and interviews.

You may want our assistance with your internal audit programme, we can provide regular audits to periodically check conformity or you can take our service on a needs basis, perhaps where you need extra resource.

Audits will be conducted against the ISO 9001:2008 “Quality Management Systems. Requirements” by our consultant.  Our consultants have several years experience in the effective analysis and development of quality management systems.

A full report will be issued, together with management briefing/summary note.  This could form the basis of a presentation to Senior Management if required.

Building on the findings of the audit, a focussed ISO 9001 Implementation Strategy could be developed, incorporating a prioritised action list with timelined key performance indicators (KPIs) for the non-conforming areas identified by the audit.  See our ISO 9001 Management Systems Consultancy Services for more information on help with implementation of ISO 9001.
