We enjoy working with NQA as they provide a particularly good service for SME’s, which are the majority of our clients. NQA’s ‘back office’ support is highly responsive to the needs of our clients and to us as well.
Top tip for people looking at certification?
Our top tip for people looking at certification is to understand the scope of your system and consider any growth areas that may be part of strategic and planned growth.
What do you find is the most common point of misunderstanding regarding certification or specific standards when visiting clients?
We find that the most common point of misunderstanding regarding certification is using the right certification body to add credence to the registration (i.e. UKAS accredited), and for particular industry sectors.
With regards to systems requirements, the information we have to clarify most often is the process of ‘contract review’. People don’t understand that it is simply following the trail from enquiry to order acknowledgement in order to manage customer expectations and requirements.
We believe that good quality is good business. A properly defined, implemented and maintained QMS should deliver improvements in all areas of the business, not least in growth of sales and margins, but also in long term sustainability.
