Accredited certification of your management systems by LRQA to recognised national or international standards - such as ISO and key sector standards - gives you a credible means of addressing stakeholder concerns. Robust management systems have proven to be valuable business tools in managing risk, bringing consistency to global operations, delivering change and driving improvement.
LRQA assessors will audit your management system to show that it meets the requirements of your chosen standard or scheme. At the end of the visit they will typically provide you with an assessment report including an executive summary giving you the means to continually improve your management systems. Following successful assessment, you will be awarded a certificate.
When your organisation achieves approval to a standard such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001, you are known as 'approved', 'registered' or 'certified' and the certificate that we issue will include an approval mark, which shows we have been accredited to carry out the assessment.
In the UK, we hold accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) which means that you can be confident that we have the expertise and professionalism to carry out assessments.
In addition, our unique Business Assurance approach can really give your business the edge by turning the assessment process into a powerful management tool to improve and protect performance. By understanding what really matters to your organisation and stakeholders, we can help you improve your management system - and in turn your business - at the same time.
