Better management systems through Business Assurance
We operate in over 120 countries and help organisations to deliver their customer promises. In order for the customer to get maximum benefit and value from their management system, we are now working on a new approach Business Assurance. In short, this means raising the bar and not being satisfied with simply confirming compliance with or deviation from a standard. Instead, we provide structured feedback that results in constant improvement that sharpens up the management system and minimises risks, while also encouraging development within the organisation in question. The overall effect for our customers is evident through better competitiveness and higher profits.
Audits are always performed by auditors who are certified specialists with years of experience in customers preferred areas. All our auditors are university educated and can speak the customers language and are familiar with that countrys culture and business climate.

For customers, this means that any audit of your management system is performed by auditors with specialist knowledge of precisely your area.
