Consulting for ISO, API, OHSAS and SEMS Implementation
USQC’s consulting services consist of partial or full turnkey assistance in achieving ISO, API or OHSAS certification(s) and compliance, backed by a robust electronic management system and processes.
USQC provides expert guidance at every step, from selection of a registrar, to helping you write standards-compliant procedures, implementing a quality management system (QMS), EMS or ISMS, and conducting internal audits. Whether or not you have a quality assurance department or an established management system, we can work with your Project Manager to make your sought-after standards certification process is a successful one.
Based on satisfied clients who have obtained international standards certification, we have devised an approach that will help you achieve your certification objectives. We will also assist you in implementing a sound and effective Electronic Management System that will foster continual improvement and customer satisfaction.
Our approach is three-fold:
- Hands-on involvement
- Process Mapping
- Technology as a resource, i.e. Web QMS
We start by working with your process or departmental groups through a series of process mapping sessions that allow us document an accurate representation of your core business competencies. We investigate inputs and outputs, interactions within core processes, as well as support processes and identify process owners to generate a full, actionable picture of how your organization works. These deliverables are the result of meetings and interviews, and they typically go through 2 or 3 review phases before final approval.
We approach the consulting process for each standard in a way that reflects both the requirements of the standard, and the manner in which your business operates. This helps you to get the most value from the improvements that are possible through compliance: improved efficiency, greater productivity, and world-class management of quality, safety, environmental and/or information security systems. The end result? A comprehensive engagement that injects concrete competitive advantages into the very DNA of your organization, its products and services.
USQC has honed its expertise by consulting, auditing and training organizations in various industries for ISO, API, OHSAS and SEMS compliance. That experience – and the proven approach we’ve developed – translate into a track record that has seen 100% of our clients attain their certification goals and business objectives.
