ISO 9001 Consultants - Chicago - New York
ISO 9001 Certificate became an inevitable requirement for small businesses, not only to grow but to survive. ISO 9001 certificate is one of the mandatory requirements in the vendor selection procedure of most large organizations. Companies also use the ISO 9001 certificate to prove their product and service quality.
ISO Certification is challenging for small organizations (manufacturing and service). Implementing the ISO 9001 quality management system requires knowledge of ISO 9001 standard, training, time for documentation, and expertise. There are two options, hire an ISO 9001 Consultant or assign top management personnel. It is not a good idea for a small business to have a few top management personnel posted, one of them for ISO Certification, which will adversely affect the company’s overall performance.
Role of ISO 9001 Consultant
ISO 9001 standard is the same for a large organization with more than 1000 employees and a small organization having one or two employees. An experienced ISO 9001 Consultant can help you interpret the standard and apply it to the scope of your organization. ISO 9001 consultant will also help you prepare quality manual, quality system procedures, forms, records, etc., per ISO 9001 standard.
How to select an ISO 9001 Consultant?
When searching on the internet for ISO 9001 consultants, you can find a lot of consultants, including an online store with ISO 9001 templates. Pre-designed templates are helpful only if you have a competent, knowledgeable (both in ISO 9001 Standard and software) person in the organization. ISO 9001 implementation is an onsite job requiring frequent consultant visits to the site; selecting a consultant from nearby areas will help reduce the cost. The consultants' experience and knowledge are important factors in the project's timely completion. Liberty Management Group LTD (LMG), headquartered in Greater Chicago, provides ISO 9001 consulting services to Chicago and its suburbs.
Cost of ISO 9001 Certification
The cost of ISO certification includes consultant fees and certification body fees. Certification body (registrar) fees are different for each certification body. The fees for an accredited certification body will be higher than for a non-accredited certification body. Most ISO Consultants charge hourly fees, so it is hard to budget ISO Certification cost.
