What Does ISO Mean?
ISO stands for the International Organisation for Standardisation. ISO certification ensures high-quality products and services, good health and safety procedures, and eco-friendly practices.
Why Do We Need ISO Standards? Why Are They Benefitical?
ISO certification is beneficial for millions of companies in many ways. Each standard positively impacts your business both short and long-term but specifies different things. Some companies need other standards more than others, but ISO 9001, the internationally recognised standard for Quality Management is beneficial to all and is highly recommended.

What is The Difference Between Accredited and Unaccredited?
Accredited ISO certification is awarded by a UKAS accredited certification body, and this ensures that your certification body has been exposed to the same checks your business has had. Unaccredited certification holds smaller weight as nobody is checking that the assessments are done correctly so; it is like just giving out certification to anybody who applies.
How Much Does ISO Certification Cost?
ISO certification is calculated based on your business’s activities and the number of employees and sites.
Everything spent on ISO certification, no matter the standard will pay off as your business develops and you will see a return on investment.
