  • ISO9001:2015

    QTP Limited held an ISO9001:2015 transition seminar in Sept 16 for organisations holding certification to ISO9001:2008. The seminar was attended by some of QTP Limited long standing clients who have communicated to us the value of the seminar in helping them understand the new and changed requirements

    One key response was the fact that most of the certification bodies seem to be over egging the requirements and making a mountain out of a mole hill. Client feedback confirmed that QTP Limited cut through the jargon and presented a clear and understandable picture of the requirements

    We plan to hold another seminar in Dec on the same subject so if you would like to attend please get in contact with us and reserve a place. The venue for the seminar will be Sutton Coldfield near Birmingham

  • ISO Standards Fairness & Strict Rules

    ISO standards (ISO9001 and ISO14001) are developed according to strict rules to ensure that they are transparent and fair. The reverse side of the coin is that it can take time to develop consensus among the interested parties, and for the resulting agreement to go through the public review process in the ISO member countries. For some users of standards, particularly those working in fast-changing technology sectors, it may be more important to agree and publish a technical specification quickly, before going through the various checks and balances needed to win the status of a full International Standard. Therefore, to meet such needs, ISO has developed a new range of “deliverables”, or different categories of specifications, allowing publication at an intermediate stage of development before full consensus. E.G TS 16945.

    Take a look at the graphical symbols on the dashboard of your car or at the pictorial symbol on a package marked with handling instructions such as “This way up”. Various ISO technical committees have developed or adopted hundreds of carefully researched signs and symbols that convey clear-cut messages which cross language boundaries. On the inside cover of nearly every book, there is something called an ISBN number. ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. Publishers and booksellers are very familiar with ISBN numbers, since they are the keyway that books are ordered and bought. Try buying a book on the Internet, and you will soon learn the value of the ISBN number – there is a unique number for the book you want! And, it is based on an ISO standard.

    Yet another example: the chair that you’re probably sitting on, or the desk your computer is perched on, are held together by bolts and screws. Humble bolts and screws also hold together our children’s bicycles – and also the aircraft we trust our lives to during business trips or holiday travel. The diversity of screw threads used to represent big problems for industry, particularly in maintenance, as lost or damaged nuts and bolts could not easily be replaced. A global solution is supplied in the ISO standards for metric screw threads.

    Also, the credit card you may have used to buy your computer can be used worldwide because all its basic features are based on ISO standards. We are so familiar with many objects, like credit or telephone cards, that we tend to assume they just “fell out of the sky”. In fact, the ease with which we can use them can be traced back to an ISO standard. So if you are considering why obtain certification to ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO27001 etc, you now know how and why they are developed.

  • UKAS Accredited Certification

    The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation body recognised by government to assess, against internationally agreed standards, organisations such as BSI, ISOQAR, NQA, LRQA and SGS that provide certification, testing, inspection (ISO17020) and calibration services (ISO17025).

    Accreditation by UKAS means that the organisation has been assessed against internationally recognised standards to demonstrate their competence, impartiality and performance capability. Non accredited certification bodies are not regulated and consequently may not be giving you a thorough assessment you require.

    UKAS is a non-profit company, limited by guarantee, and operates under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government through the Department of Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) naming UKAS as the UK’s sole recognised accreditation body.

    What Are the Benefits of Choosing a UKAS-Accredited Certification Body?

    An independent evaluation of organisations that issue certificates as assurance of a company’s compliance with established standards and of business excellence is the principal source of this reassurance and such confidence is underpinned by UKAS accreditation.

    By using a UKAS accredited certification body your customers will be reassured and confident about your services. It will send out a strong message to your customers that you are serious about the markets you operate in and will not compromise your company’s integrity.

    In short, using a UKAS-accredited certification body provides advantages, such as:

    • Minimising risk
    • Saving money
    • Enhancing reputation
    • Opening up opportunities
    • Being internationally recognised
    • Decreasing potential product failure
    • Increasing market access
    • Helping gain larger contracts/tenders
    • Increasing your organisation’s reputation

    Companies that do not use a UKAS-accredited certification body may find themselves less successful at winning larger contracts. Certificates issued by non-accredited bodies may well not be recognised by existing and prospective clients, resulting in a company being more susceptible to losing market share.  In short, without UKAS accreditation, the competence of a supplier’s certification body is not known

  • Why Integrate Your Management Systems?

    It always seems to amaze me how so many organisation have two , or sometimes three completely separate management systems, one for Quality, one for Environmental and one for their Health & Safety. In many cases it’s because the systems were developed independently, by different people at different times. The problem is that this approach creates so much duplication and has a continual impact on the availability of valuable internal resources. In some cases, organisations have two or even three full time managers looking after these completely independent systems.

    As every professional knows, the best way to cut down on wasted effort is to integrate the management systems into one simple and coherent system. If you have this scenario in your organisation and want to put it right, why not Leave a Comment or contact us today and see how we can help integrate your system and remove all the wasted effort.
