Quality Management

Regardless of your business’s size or complexity, any opportunity for the improvement of its processes that results in the enhancement of the quality of the goods it produces or the services it delivers its customers should not be missed.

Customer satisfaction can be adversely impacted by poor planning, failing to define needs and requirements, ineffective controls, and low standards and expectations.

Quality Management

An effective Quality Management System can mitigate risks by using a process approach in conjunction with risk-based thinking, to achieve the business’s intended objectives in accordance with its quality policy and strategic plan.
Our quality management services also include:

Quality Management

 

  • ISO9001 lead auditing
  • Quality management systems
  • Training and education
  • Compliance audits
Establishing an ISO 9001 based Quality Management System can inspire your business to:

  • Consistently provide products and services that meet customer, statutory or regulatory requirements
  • Address business risks as well as opportunities to enhance customer satisfaction
  • Demonstrate conformity
  • Achieve greater customer focus
  • Build a motivated and proud workforce
  • Create better company image

 

The international standard for quality management systems was substantially revised in September 2015 and is now known as ISO 9001:2015

If you currently hold ISO 9001:2008 certification, you have three years (from September 2015) to upgrade to the 2015 version – although your Certification body may plan to carry out the transition assessment at your next recertification audit, which may be sooner.

We will be pleased to act in a consultative capacity or assist your business to whatever extent required, enabling a smooth transition to the revised standard.

If you are considering implementing ISO 9001:2015 from scratch, we will be pleased to advise, assist or fully implement a system in readiness for external certification.

We also have considerable experience with the quality standard for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, ISO 17025:2005, and will be pleased to assist you with any aspect of implementation or maintenance of this exacting Quality Management System.

Other services we will be pleased to extend are:

  • Temporary Quality Manager and Lead Auditor provision in the event of a resource shortfall
  • Independent Gap analysis study and report / recommendations
  • Internal auditing services

 

Testimonials

As a specialist solicitor engaged in all types of regulatory, contractual, advisory, due diligence and litigation work in the fields of waste, pollution and industrial law, I have worked with Chris Williamson many times, and have found his technical and commercial acumen in these areas to be absolutely indispensable. Whether (for example) challenging government actions or framing difficult and highly specialist ‘end of waste’ cases, Chris’ many years of in-depth knowledge and hands-on experience of commercial industrial processes and the critical nitty-gritty of practical chemistry, are in my experience an essential part of a successful legal or regulatory process – no more so than when he drove the technical agenda (and heavily influenced the legal strategy) that won the groundbreaking OSS v Environment Agency end of waste ruling in the Court of Appeal. I unhesitatingly recommend him to lawyers and commercial operators working in this area.

I have known Chris Williamson since 2006 and he has provided environmental & waste advice to CSG on an ongoing basis since 2011. His range of consultancy services are extremely diverse including waste treatment process design & build, project finance models, business plans, joint venture agreements, planning applications, permit applications, appeals, regulatory disputes, commercial dispute resolution, End of Waste applications, quasi legal advice, tied oil schemes, new initiatives etc. I have used most, if not all of these services over the past five years to the benefit of the company so I would highly recommend Chris to any organisation requiring expert environmental support and advice in the waste and industrial sectors.
