ISO Registration: International Organization for standardization in short known as
ISO. The word ISO is derived from the Greek ISOS meaning 'equal'. ISO story was
begun in 1920 in Geneva, Switzerland, as the International Federation of the
National Standardizing Associations (ISA). During the 2nd World War, in 1942, it was
suspended, but delegates from the ISA and the UNSCC met in London in October 1946
and agreed to join forces to form the new International Organization for
Standardization. In February 1947, the new entity became operational.
Since the International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) would translate differently in different languages, the
organization's short-form name was chosen. The ISO has expanded to become a
confederation of delegates representing more than 150 countries, with over 16,500
international standards issued. They get together on a regular basis to discuss new
and existing management standards.
Our Training Division supports our core
services, which specialise in implementation, certification and continual
auditing of ISO and BS-EN Management Standards.
As an independent organisation, we understand
how important training is to a company and have seen first-hand the boost to
morale, profits, customer satisfaction, and employee loyalty. We are also aware
that delivering high-quality services consistently is a challenge for any
organisation which is why we aim to make it easier for you.
As a company that values your employees, you
are already aware of the return on investment you can experience with competence
building. We ensure you build and maintain an ethos of excellence, enhancing
your reputation with both your target market and future skilled employees.
Our courses are intensive but fully
interactive sessions, which focus on the important element of training - the end
application. We also provide on-site training to your staff covering any of the
ISO and BS OHSAS training that we offer, as well as creating bespoke courses
specific to the requirements of your business and industry.
When choosing a certification body, you should:
- Evaluate several certification bodies.
- Check if the certification body uses the relevant CASCO standard.
- Check if it is accredited. Accreditation is not compulsory, and
non-accreditation does not necessarily mean it is not reputable, but it does
provide independent confirmation of competence. To find an accredited
certification body, contact the national accreditation body in your country
or visit the International Accreditation Forum.
