If you already hold an ISO certification (such as ISO 9001 or ISO 27001), you may be interested to know that you can change your certification body at any time.
Your certification body is the organisation that issued your certificate. Due to the international nature of ISO standards, and international agreements for the accreditation of certification bodies, your certification body does not need to be within your own country. You are free to 'shop around' and find a certification body that suits you, your customers’ requirements, and ultimately your budget.
Certificate validation has always been a big problem for the certification and accreditation industry.
When you're deciding whether or not to work with a business that claims to be ISO certified, it's important to make sure their certificate is genuine and not a forgery that they mocked up and printed out themselves.
But this can be surprisingly difficult to verify. You could contact the accreditation body and ask them for confirmation - but it won't always be possible to get hold of them right away, especially if they're based in another country.
That's why we at ISO Accelerator launched the Scan and See© authentication system in early 2021.
The success of any IT service provider is dependent on expertise, care, and dedication to providing a high-quality service. Obtaining ISO certification is a fantastic way to show potential clients that your IT company ticks all of these boxes.
We can help recruitment companies to achieve ISO 9001 certification quickly while keeping costs low.
To call the recruitment industry 'highly competitive' would be an understatement. There are tens of thousands of recruitment agencies operating in the UK alone, so businesses in this sector have to work very hard indeed to stand out from the crowd.
One reliable way to achieve that all-important competitive edge is to secure ISO 9001 certification for your business. ISO 9001 is the global standard for quality management systems, and getting certified shows potential clients that your organisation is serious about customer satisfaction and the pursuit of continuous improvement.
If your business is based in Australia and you're looking to become ISO certified, we at ISO Accelerator can help.
We are headquartered in the UK, but because our remote ISO certification process is conducted entirely online, we can provide fast and cost-effective certification for your business no matter where in the world you are.
