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

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.

With our help, business owners and organisations are able to obtain ISO accreditation without the usual hassle and expenditure of resources through our simple online process, and now, it’s even easier!

To get certified now, all that is required is for you to visit our certification page, select the accreditation you desire from our range of certifications and finalise your purchase.
This eliminates time-consuming factors even further, by allowing you to choose the exact certification you need, purchasing it and following the required steps without our involvement – fantastic!

Brexit seems to have been on everyone's minds for as long as we can remember, but it looks like things are finally coming to a head. At the beginning of January, MP's gave their backing for a withdrawal agreement bill that will see the UK leave the EU on January 31st. So, with this in mind, many UK businesses are starting to consider their relationship with the US.
The relationship between the UK and the USA has always been one of mutual support, but once Brexit is over with, we can expect this to strengthen even more. US president, Donald Trump is said to be "excited" about the closer post-Brexit relations that are likely to develop over the coming months. Meanwhile, our own Prime Minister is prioritising a trade deal with the US and plans to get this underway as soon as possible.
At this point, there's no doubt that British and American businesses need to start evolving and creating closer ties. We may find we have an influx of US customers looking for British products and services and vice versa. So, how can you prepare your business?
Gain your ISO accreditation through ISO Accelerator!
If you do want to build business trades with the US, you'll benefit from gaining your ISO certification through ISO Accelerator. Why? because we are accredited by USAS, a company based in Florida, USA. American businesses (and customers) will have confidence in your quality management systems if they see you've been certified by us. Plus, when you choose to gain certification through us, you'll be able to gain your ISO certification in as little as 7 days!
So, if you are not yet ISO certified, but you'd like to get the ball rolling pre-Brexit, simply use the buttons below to get started. If you'd like to speak to us directly, you can give us a call on 01308 302 010.

Small companies can take action in 2020 to help solve the climate emergency by switching to a sustainable certification company like ISO Accelerator.
Traditional methods of achieving ISO accreditation involve the accreditor taking time out to conduct multiple consultation sessions and site visits.

Our online process allows smaller organisations to apply for and gain ISO accreditation without ever having to leave their premises, reducing the potential impact on the environment.
But it doesn’t end there. Not only can you achieve a more sustainable accreditation, but accreditation itself will enable your business to become more sustainable through the implementation of more efficiency-based procedures. A sustainable accreditation process married with a sustainable outcome.

For companies seeking ISO accreditation, attaining certification online can boast a wide variety of benefits. Not only can it help save you money and reduce the financial burden of the accreditation process, it can also save time and reduce the workload for you and your team.
However, in addition to these obvious benefits, there are also less publicised perks to online ISO accreditation that go far beyond man hours and budget figures. Online accreditation can also help contribute to a healthier environment as well.
As the 21st century enters its third decade, the world is becoming increasingly conscious of the environmental impact and ecological stress we are and have been putting on the Earth.
As a result, planetary conservation is a growing concern at the forefront of the general public and one that has crossed over to the professional realm in recent years.
For many companies, steps are being taken to limit harmful emissions, reduce carbon footprint and generally lessen the environmental impact of the business.
However, you don't have to replace your computers with typewriters and work by candlelight to make your workplace more eco-friendly. You can contribute to a healthier environment simply by going digital with ISO Accelerator…
Environmental Benefits of Online Accreditation
While digital ISO certification doesn't actively make the environment healthier, it does provide a green solution that significantly decreases the harmful processes that do adversely affect the planet.
With business conducted solely online, digital certification eliminates the necessity for a physical auditor to visit sites in person. As a result, the auditor isn't required to travel, saving fuel and reducing emissions in the process.
On the surface, that may seem insignificant; however, when multiplied, the results can be altogether remarkable. Eliminating the annual travel of a single auditor can reduce CO2 emissions quite literally by tonnes and have a dramatic impact on the environment as a result.
To find out more about the environmental benefits of online ISO accreditation or for additional details on digital ISO certification, why not drop us a line today? Call now on 01308 302010 or get in touch online by clicking the button below.
