Aren’t all certification bodies and auditors the same? Don’t they all use the same approach and standards? What makes one certification company better than another? Why pick one over the other? Your business is unique…..And so is ours! Your managers and employees have specialized experience in specific fields. They have their own specialized experience and expertise necessary to making your business work in its particular way. So why would you expect less from a company you hire to assess the quality of your management system and to evaluate your business processes?
Many assessment companies have you fill out a questionnaire to be reviewed by accountants who compile the data and provide their conclusions. This is fine if you’re being evaluated for accounting. But what if you’re in the field of energy production, manufacturing, technology, medical, or telecommunications? Wouldn’t you want auditors who were experts in your field? Wouldn’t you want auditors who had the expertise and experience to understand the unique needs of your business, auditors who could tailor their audit to provide the fullest possible picture of your unique business? And finally, meeting your needs and expectations for value beyond a conformance audit should be a fundamental philosophy, built into the service of your certification body.
