ISO 9001 Assessment Process

The ISO 9001 standard covers every part of your business management systems. It is therefore vital to appoint an
assessor who has the experience to implement ISO 9001 certication across all areas of your organisation.
The assessor can be appointed internally from senior management with the relevant authority and expertise, or
externally from an accredited certication body. The reality is usually a combination of both.
This will give you the most eective quality management system that will work for your business. It will provide a
system that can be constantly monitored and improved upon by your internal team. In addition, an external
assessor will bring in expertise and best practice from a wider industry perspective. This will help to ensure that
when the audit is done, your management systems comply with the requirements of ISO9001.
ACS Registrars have UKAS Accreditation, so before you start contact us to nd out more.

Objectives of an Audit

Annual surveillance visits need to be arranged; this will help to ensure that the re/certication audit carried out
every 3 years is a formality rather than a major process overhaul.
During the audit you will be assessed on:
Documentation control
Records being kept
Sta and management conformance to the system
How the system is working in each area of the organisation
Sta training necessary to meet the requirements
The audit can be undertaken by a number of certication bodies. However it is important to note that not all
auditing organisations are UKAS accredited. If you do not use a UKAS accredited auditor your certication could
end up being worthless.
