Your management system

Every day, a wide range of decisions are made in your organization. Decisions and actions that have consequences and impact your short and long term performance. It impacts the quality of your deliveries, your reputation, performance and profits.

The sum of these actions – whether formally implemented or implicitly forged – is your management system, your company’s way of doing business. All companies have a management system, regardless of size, industry or the complexity of its operations. It all comes down to how aware you are about your business processes and what you want to achieve.

How do you know if you are doing the right things at the right time? That you are not overlooking any critical risks? That you are tapping your potential?

The value of assurance

Assurance services are independent third party assessments that give you and your key stakeholders confidence. Confidence that you have the right procedures in place to handle key aspects of importance to you, whether it is related to quality, the environment, safety, or any other area. Confidence that your employees are properly trained and aware of best practices and which decisions and actions they should take.

Assurance services provide the evidence that your business is being run efficiently.

By benchmarking and certifying your management systems to well renowned international standards, such as ISO 9001 for quality management or ISO 14001 for environmental management, you demonstrate that you are operating according to best practice and work for continuous improvements. Sending a strong message to customers, suppliers and investors.

In order to certify towards an ISO standard, you need to work with an accredited certifier, such as DNV GL.
