In recent years, it has become increasingly difficult for businesses to distinguish themselves from their competitors. Being ISO certified opens doors to business opportunities that will help you build a positive image for your business in the eyes of and community.
ISO certifications are strategic tools for businesses to reduce waste, increase productivity at work and reduce errors.
There are five stages to the certification process:
- Stage 1: gap analysis
- Stage 2: certification documentation
- Stage 3: Developing a Management System
- Stage 4: Implementation
- Stage 5: Auditing and Continuous Improvements
QMS will provide an overview of the components of the certification process after the initial consultation.
Initial Consultation And Selection Of A Certification
Organizations can obtain several ISO certifications. QMS offers auditing and certification services to various ISO Standards including Safety Management and Quality Management.
During our initial consultation, we will discuss your company's compliance history and what you want to accomplish from the certification process. This information will assist you in determining which certification is right for your business.

We offer training for system managers, managers, and employees responsible for ensuring compliance with standards. This training will introduce you to the standard and walk you through all of the components.
While there are many ISO standards, the process of obtaining certification is very similar. For a complete overview of the ISO certification process, please read on.
Optional Stage 1: Gap Analysis
Gap analysis is a comparison of your business to the ISO standard. This analysis identifies areas where your business needs improvement to be eligible for certification.
QMS will review your gap analysis with your management team once it is complete. This will serve as the basis for compiling compliance documentation.
Stage 2: Prepare Your Documentation For Certification
The preparation of ISO documentation is an important part of the process. This is what organizations will examine during the review process. Documentation should outline compliance goals and procedures that the business will use to comply with the specific ISO certification.
The ISO 9001 standard, for example, ensures that a business has quality management. The systems won't work without the right documentation and you won’t be certified.
After the audit is complete, a JAS-ANZ Accredited Conformity Assessment Body such as QMS can review the documentation. These documents will be used to prove that your management system meets the requirements for the selected Standard.
Stage 3: Developing A Management System
You may decide to create a new management system depending on your certification requirements and business needs. This will ensure compliance over the long term.
Implementing the ISO-compliant management system in your business is the next step after you have developed it.
Stage 4: Implementation
This stage is often the longest. The ISO requirements are integrated into the organization during this stage.
Stage 5: Auditing And Continuous Improvements
Auditing is an ongoing task. Auditing is done both internally and externally by the business to maintain ISO certification.
A continuous improvement process can bring many benefits:
- Ability to spot new opportunities that will improve efficiency
- Recognize new challenges as they occur
- Rapidly react to any changes to the certification
To ensure that staff and stakeholders are competent in the process, business owners must provide training internally.
Depending on which certification you choose, ISO certification may help your business increase efficiency and safety, as well as customer loyalty.
