HOW DOES IT WORK?
Louise deals with the whole application process and lets you get on with running your business.
First of all you need to decide which UKAS Certification body you wish to apply to. Louise recommends British Assessment Bureau. You then need to pay this fee to the accreditation body.
Louise will talk with you about the process, including the site audit (usually two) that take place. Louise can attend these audits with you.
Usually the first audit is a fact finding audit by the certification body. They will provide you with a report which will give you information on your major and minor non-compliances to enable you to complete this work (usually within a maximum timeframe of 12 weeks).
At the stage two audit, you will be expected to demonstrate that you have closed out your non-compliances.
Louise can assist you with this.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost will depend on the size and complexity of your business and what needs to be implemented to comply with the accreditation application process. Louise will discuss this with you and provide a detailed proposal for you to consider.
Please note you will also have to pay the awarding bodies’ accreditation fees. These costs can be found on their websites.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
When you accept your proposal, Louise will let you know the next available slot for the work to be completed.
Please note that Louise has no influence over the timescales from the accreditation bodies, and this will depend on the waiting lists they have for assessment at that particular point in time.
Why Get Accredited?
ISO standards are an excellent management tool to continuously improve your business. In addition potential and existing clients will see that you wish to demonstrate a compliant business that wants to excel.

GREAT CLIENT FEEDBACK
One of the best marketing tools for a small business is first class feedback from happy business owners, however, word of mouth referral is how I obtain 90% of my client base. And I think that speaks volumes.
From the outset to final approval of ISO9001 certification, Louise at Positive About Business has provided an excellent consultancy service to Hydrocert!
Louise is very knowledgeable about the standard providing clear and concise support throughout. Louise was very responsive to any queries, assisting our efficiency and implementation of this achievement. We would highly recommend Louise as a Consultant if you were a business looking to achieve ISO9001 certification.
A great job done from start to finish – thank you Louise!
I was delighted that once again Fast Fixx Catering Engineers sailed through the annual assessment of our ISO9001 and ISO45001 accreditations.
We could not have done it without Louise. Louise keeps us right on how to make sure our Management System is maintained and used which makes it so much easier when the annual review takes place.
We contacted Louise at Positive about Business to assist us with the migration from 18001 to 45001.
Louise took all the stress out of the situation, understanding our needs perfectly, producing precise documentation which answered all our requirements whilst also being extremely user friendly.
I would highly recommend her services and we look forward to working with her in the future.
