Unless you are already using a USAS-accredited certification body, the answer is probably yes.

British twenty-pound notes

During the outbreak of COVID-19, we have seen a number of UK-based certification bodies switch to remote auditing. The problem with this is that you, the customer, are most likely still paying for their huge overheads.

ISO Accelerator was set up from day one to conduct ISO certification audits remotely. This means that our costs are lower, and we pass those savings on to our customers.

If you already have a certified quality management system (QMS) in place, you could transfer your certification audits to ISO Accelerator from as little as £195 (ex VAT).

We can also save you money on your environmental management system (ISO 14001) and information security management system (ISO 27001) certification costs.

Our remote auditing process offers a number of key benefits: because it takes auditors off the road, it's better for the environment, and because no face-to-face contact is required, our process is ideal for organisations who wish to minimise contact during the novel coronavirus pandemic. And as already mentioned, it could save your business a substantial amount of money.

Man at computer, working remotely

Our accreditation body USAS has been pioneering remote ISO certification for some time. Now, for the first time, we are seeing UKAS-accredited certification bodies follow suit. This change comes in response to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, which is forcing organisations in all sectors to adapt their business practices and minimise interpersonal contact.

Why choose ISO Accelerator for remote audits?

One of the main reasons to use our USAS-accredited process for your certification audits is that, unlike the UKAS-accredited companies who are only now making the switch, our audits were designed to be conducted remotely from day one.

This means that there are substantial savings to be made - for example, if you already have a certified QMS in place, you could transfer your certification audits to ISO Accelerator from as little as £195 (ex VAT).

You can also transfer across your environmental management system (ISO 14001) and information security management system (ISO 27001).

So not only is our remote auditing process great for the environment, it can also help to protect your employees and reduce ongoing certification costs.

Please contact us directly so we can help you to transfer and start to save.

Woman washing hands to limit spread of coronavirus

COVID-19 (short for coronavirus disease 2019) has been dominating the headlines for weeks now. It's an infectious disease whose symptoms include fever, coughing and shortness and breath; governments all over the world are taking action in an effort to slow the virus down, and many businesses are following suit.

We are now seeing companies in all sorts of different industries restricting travel and limiting access to essential personnel. The UK government's current advice for employers and businesses can be viewed here.

If the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has spurred your business to compose a continuity plan for future emergencies, switching to a remote ISO certification body like ISO Accelerator could be a key part of this plan.

All of our audits are conducted remotely, with no need for an auditor to visit your premises in person. Not only is this better for the environment, it's also ideal for situations where you're trying to limit travel and face-to-face contact with other people.
