What is the Role of an ISO Consultant for an ISO Certification?

ISO consultants evaluate an organization or company’s processes and guide to help the company meet the requirements of the ISO Standards. For example, the ISO consultant can help identify issues with processes, make recommendations for improvement, and train employees in new systems.

The best consultants have a deep understanding of the ISO Standards and are familiar with the industries they advise.  They also have plenty of experience implementing the standards in different companies.

An ISO Consultant can Help you Plan

As we help you learn the basics of ISO 9001:2015, a consultant can guide you through preparing your required documentation, quality manual, and documented processes.

Within the standards, “document and record control… includes the organization of all documents and records determined by the company to be necessary for its successful operation. Each document or record must be appropriately identified and described within the QMS, and attention should be given to ensure formatting of documents is consistent. This tight control of recorded information ensures that it will be protected from improper use and corruption, available when needed, and properly distributed and stored.”

What is a Quality Manual?

A quality manual is a document that states the company’s intentions for operating and executing the processes within its quality management system. It can include policies for all areas of the business that affect your ability to make high quality products and meet your customers’ and ISO’s requirements. These policies define how your department managers will implement procedures within the boundaries specified in the quality manual.

When it comes to the quality manual, senior management must steer the organization away from high risks and toward clearly stated, consistently measured and carefully analyzed quality objectives. By using quality objectives, top management can keep the organization focused on what is most mission-critical to the company and its customers, ensuring improving results that deliver real, demonstrable quality throughout the organization.,

As expert ISO consultants, Core Business Solutions has developed world-class technology to help your small business prepare your required documentation, and highly experienced consultants to help you write your quality manual and set up your document processes.

An ISO Consultant can help you Implement

As you implement ISO 9001, a consultant will work with your team to set goals, conduct management reviews, review results, and drive the actions needed for improvement.​

In order to continue to have commitment from employees and top managers, the number of goals and the scope of those goals should be realistic and attainable.

When you are formulating your goals, keep these considerations in mind:

    • Views of interested parties
    • Business requirements
    • Hazards related to risks
    • Aspects related to potential impacts
    • Financial requirements
    • Operational requirements
    • Legal and compliance requirements

With a goal-oriented agenda emanating from the leaders in your company or organization, the goals will move through the QMS to all employees and influence both functional and personal goals.

An ISO Consultant can help you with Internal Auditing

An ISO 9001 internal audit will be conducted to ensure your preparedness for the registrar audit. Together, we will review process corrections and make sure you have all the necessary compliance documentation.​

The internal auditor team is typically comprised of a few experienced employees from different areas of your organization. The purpose of the internal audit is to confirm that the company’s documentation meets the requirements of the ISO Standard you are reaching for and that the day-to-day operations follow the documentation.

An ISO Consultant Can Help You Get Certified

An ISO Consultant can help you secure a registrar, or Certification Body, to perform your final external audit. Upon completion, an ISO Consultant can help correct any findings (if applicable). Then you will receive your ISO certificate!​

Certification is the provision by an independent body of written assurance (a certificate) that a service, system, or product meets specific requirements. Being certified by an accredited registrar makes a certificate valid.

Usually, ISO consultants have relationships with accredited registrars and can help you acquire a registrar with the qualifications needed for your situation.

When selecting individuals to become auditors, consideration should be given to matching personal qualifications with an understanding of the role and responsibilities of the auditor. Another factor to consider when choosing an ISO auditor is that the individuals on the team have experience in performing a variety of tasks.  This supports the requirement that auditors must not audit their function or department to obtain objectivity.

“…selection of auditors and conduct of audits shall ensure objectivity and impartiality of the audit process. Auditors shall not audit their work.” (ref. 8.2.2, ISO9000).
