About your company

CRK Consulting Limited have been operating since 2016 coming from a background of working within private, public and not-for-profit sectors, with over 12 years’ experience of working within ISO frameworks.

Why do you like working with NQA?

Over the years we have found that NQA have very quick and professional response times and have a point of contact for any queries or concerns. We are always able to get through to someone who can help and go above and beyond to ensure we have what we need. They are also competitive on price which our clients love.

We also reassured that when we recommend NQA to our clients that they will receive a professional assessment and that follow-up actions are dealt with promptly and efficiently. This is a real added value to our customers.

We were originally introduced to NQA as one of teir clients. Due to their positive audit process and the exceptional knowledge and skills of the auditors that we worked with we knew that our customers would also benefit.

Top tip for people looking at certification?

  • Understand why you are seeking certification - what are you hoping to achieve?

  • Be prepared to change the way you work - change can be hard but you may find new ways to improve efficiency

  • Establish some internal resources to own, implement and continually manage your management system following certification.

  • Ensure top management commitment before starting your ISO journey

What do you find is the most common point of misunderstanding regarding certification or specific standards when visiting clients?

  • ISO management systems must be driven from the top. The whole process is much easier and more fluid when you have the support and understanding of leadership and someone to own the process and results.

  • ISO 27001 is not an IT certification and impacts all areas of the business. It helps your to manage the security of your information across the entire organisation effectively, something your stateholders and interested parties will be pleased about.

  • ISO 9001 has so much potential to help you drive organisational improvements. Because it's been around for so long we have seen that people who do not quite understad how it works see it as a printed manual that just sits on a shelf and audited once a year. However it can be used to help you really improve the quality of your processes and services and show your customers that you can grow and exceed their expectations.
