I am a qualified Lead Auditor, represent BSI, NQA, British Assessment Bureau and TUV UK, and conduct audits against the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 14001: 2015 and ISO 22301: 2013. I conduct 3rd party audits (stage 1, stage 2, surveillance and 3rd year re-certification) for clients in a wide range of industries, including information technology, printing, accounting, chemical products, construction, data processing, electrical installation, business and management consultancy, and education.
In addition, I help ease the burden of internal audit programmes for my clients by managing their audit schedules and performing their internal audits for them. I add value by being impartial and a ‘fresh pair of eyes’, providing feedback and identifying improvement opportunities.
A qualified Lead Auditor, I am annually certificated by IRCA. My audits add value by:
The focus of any audit is to identify the degree of conformance and compliance to requirements:
During an audit I will identify:
Certification to ISO 9001: 2015 or other ‘ISO’ standard provides confidence to other interested parties in your abilities before they use your products or services. Certifiying your management system can open doors to business opportunities that would have otherwise not existed. It can present marketing opportunities and help with PQQ’s and other tendering processes. It proves that you take it seriously. You staff and your customers will benefit from improved process control and performance improvements.
Need more information? Get in touch and I will run through the certification process with you, and you can decide whether it would be beneficial for your company.
ISO 9001 requires every certified organisation to plan and conduct internal audits based on a number of considerations. You can relax and allow me to schedule, conduct and report on audits in an efficient and effective way based on best current practice and ISO 19011: 2018
Through the process of an independent assessment of your systems against a criteria such as ISO 9001, I will identify where processes can be more effective, efficient, faster, cheaper, and with less stressful. As an IRCA Certificated Auditor I conduct audits for many types of organisations and see a lot of best practice and continually benchmark, which you will directly benefit from.
