How can Stendard's ISO consultants help

With our myriad of expertise, Stendard’s ISO consultancy can help your organisation by providing specific consulting and training services for various ISO management system. 

We can guide you through your ISO consultancy journey, which includes the certification or compliance to various ISO standards by assisting in the establishment, implementation, improvement and simplification of your business processes as well as the training of your organisation.

1. Providing consultancy services

Our experienced consultants can set up a new, existing or integrated management system for your organisation as part of your ISO consultancy journey. Some examples of an integrated management system include the establishment of:

  1. ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and ISO 27001 Information Security Management Systems – For organisations that prioritise customer satisfaction and quality in your product and services and the information security aspect of your organisation.
  2. ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety – For organisations that prioritise both customer and your own worker’s satisfaction, quality in your products and services and, at the same time, ensuring workplace safety for your organisation’s day to day operations.

This will ensure your organisation’s resources are maximised, preventing the management of two separate management systems.

Our ISO consultants will also assist in the certification audit follow-up actions, ensuring that your organisation obtains the ISO certificate.

Rest assured, as our ISO consultants will see through the whole ISO consultancy process to meet your needs!

2. Gap Analysis Service

Our consultants can assess if your existing system complies with the current requirements of the ISO standard as part of your ISO consultancy journey. With the gap analysis report provided, your organisation will be able to gauge the percentage of compliance to the desired ISO standard.

3. Auditing Services

Our consultants can conduct first, second, and third-party audits per the ISO 19011 Guidelines for auditing management systems standards for your organisation ISO standards’ requirements on various management systems as part of your ISO consultancy journey. This can be done by checking if proper processes and implementation are practised for your team and outsourced suppliers.

Through these audits, we can identify gaps from the audits and guide you and your suppliers through the rectification process before the actual certification audit commences. This would include the follow-up actions if any findings were detected.

In addition, our consultants will also identify areas of improvement such that your organisation adopts the best practice during the implementation of various ISO standards.

4. ISO Training Services

Our consultants can also provide ISO training to further expand your organisation’s knowledge as part of your ISO consultancy journey. Stendard has a wide range of online courses that suit your organisation’s training needs.

We also offer face to face training sessions for our clients who prefers learning in person.

Suppose human resources might be an issue for implementing your organisation’s desired ISO standards. In that case, our consultants can also act as your outsourced QARA / MR, leading and guiding your respective teams within your organisation during your ISO consultancy journey.

We are committed to working with you towards attaining the ISO certificate successfully.

6. Technical Services

As part of implementing various ISO standards, technical standards are often involved to complement the different management system standards. One example would be ISO 13485 – Medical Devices – Quality Management Systems, where the standard requires your organisation to adopt and comply with technical standards depending on the nature of your medical devices.

If your product has an electrical component, compliance to IEC 60601-1 Medical electrical equipment –Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance is required. Likewise, if your medical device contains software, compliance to IEC 62304 Medical device software — Software life-cycle processes would be necessary as well.

Our consultants can also provide consulting services for these specific areas as part of your ISO consultancy journey or as a standalone project as well.
