How does a company become ISO certified?
Many of our customers ask us the question: How does a company become ISO certified?
If an organization/company has no experience in ISO Audit and Certifications, the normal procedure is to first hire a ISO consultant to implement and manage their Quality Management System(QMS). After QMS is implemented and internal audit done, the company will contact an external certification body like URS Far East(Singapore), to confirm an audit date. After the audit and any findings closed, the certificate will then be issued by 2-3 weeks.
