When choosing a certification body, it is worth pointing out that you should check they are UKAS accredited. UKAS has government recognition and is licensed by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS). You can be sure to receive the most appropriate advice by choosing a UKAS accredited certification body. Your long-term success could be undermined if you use an independent evaluation service.
After successfully completing your first audit, your assessor will set up a process to monitor and improve systems and arrange regular (six monthly or annual) surveillance visits.
These visits will ensure your management systems remain effective and continue to meet the standard.
Ongoing checks will help to maintain your conformity and make your next certification renewal assessment run as smoothly as possible.
