MOST MEMORABLE AUDITING MOMENT
The huge satisfaction/relief on the faces of the Client Team from Amey (Forth Road Bridge-Scotland) once they passed/Issued with their Certification for (ISO 9001:2008, 14001:2004, and 18001:2007, NHSS 2a, 2b, 8, 12a/b, 12c, 12d, 17b and 18).
GREATEST CLIENT BENEFIT GAINED FROM ISO CERTIFICATION
Within the construction industry, it reduces the vast amount of form/paperwork completion required to be registered for new works (CHAS, PQQ, Frameworks etc) and Integrated ISO Certification is looked upon as a highly achievement/requirement by large Clients/Principal Contractors.
TOP TIP FOR GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Constantly review your documented Management System, ensure that your system accurately reflects your Business Operations. With the impending New Updated ISO Systems to the 2015 standards it is vital for you to ensure that you document any Factors/conditions affecting your Business, determining the Buisiness Context (SWOT/PESTAL analysis) and the arising risks and opportunities etc.
MOST COMMON NON-CONFORMANCE
Nothing major, some minor typo errors, lack of understanding of the new 2015 standards could be an issue next year though.
