STEPS TO CERTIFICATION
Complete a Quote Request Form so we can understand you and your business. We will then use this to personally prepare a proposal for your certification and define what is known as your 'scope of assessment'.
We will then contact you to book your assessment with an NQA assessor. This consists of two mandatory visits that form the Initial Certification Audit. Please note that you must be able to demonstrate that your management system has been operational for a minimum of three months, has been subject to a management review and a full cycle of internal audits.
Following a successful two stage audit, a decision is made and if positive, your certification is issued by NQA. You will receive both a hard and soft copy of the certificate. Certification is valid for three years and maintained through surveillance audits (years one and two,) and a recertification audit in year three.
