Top tip for people looking at certification?

  1. Find a suitably accredited certification body such as NQA. Avoid non-accredited Certification bodies aggressively marketed on the internet. Non-accredited certification is frequently rejected by interested parties seeking to limit the risks of doing business associated with your products or services. Non-accredited certification bodies are not subject to the accreditation processes applied by UKAS. Because of this non-accredited certification is considered by the majority of certification experts to lack credibility. Buyer beware, if the deal sounds too good to be true it probably is!

  2. Select the right consultancy for your business! Making the wrong consultancy choice can be costly. There are lots of consultants on the market, many driven by sales targets and fixed template ISO system models. DAT works on the basis that clients come first and that their management systems will always be tailored against client needs and not based on fitting a poor consultancy template. Don't box your ISO system in by using a rigid template approach.
