QCS offers a specialist service to make the transition to the new standards for your Quality and / or Environmental Management Systems as smooth as possible.

Includes these vital components:

  • Update Gap Analysis. Reviewing your current system against new requirements to establish what gaps exist and what requires to be done to ensure transition. Particular emphasis on the changes to context, interested parties, leadership and risk management.
  • Manual Rewrite. Update to your manual to ensure it reflects changes to the standard. Although a manual is no longer required it will continue to be core to demonstrating how you deliver quality management.
  • Review and Update Existing Procedures: Despite the removal of mandatory procedures from the new standards you will probably retain some or consolidate other in the update process. We can do this for you.
  • Risk Management (ISO 9001): Provide guidance on achieving the new, risk management elements of the Quality Management System.
  • Aspect Identification and Life Cycle Consideration (ISO 14001): Make adjustments to your existing aspect identification procedures to ensure you are conforming with the requirements to consider the life cycle of your product or service.
  • Final Audit: Completion of an audit of your systems against the new standard. Issue audit report.
  • Update Auditor Training: Provide training to your existing internal auditors so that they are familiar with the requirements of the new standards.

We already know that one of the core aims of the update is to improve the level of integration between management systems. For many of our clients we can assist in the integration process and we are happy to review your existing arrangements for this purpose. Updating your systems offers a great opportunity to integrate and make more effective your management systems.
