Management system certification is one of the many services offered by BSI, the business standards company. BSI has the resources and capability to assess and certify companies that wish to demonstrate their commitment to best practice, efficiency and sustainability.
The benefits of management systems
There are many reported advantages associated with adopting best practices like those outlined in internationally recognized standards. Research shows that businesses that get certified experience improved customer service and performance, acquire new business while retaining existing clients, and realize cost savings.
Management system certification is also important because it helps businesses overcome many challenges, like growing the organization, embedding quality and complying with customer requirements, standards and government regulations.
“Management systems allow organizations to meet these challenges by instilling best practices and validating, through certification, that they are properly established in the company,” BSI explains.
Finding a certification provider
Once companies understand the significant benefits they can realize through certification, the next step is to find a certification provider. There are certain characteristics businesses should look for in a provider.
- Make sure the company is independently certified by a recognized accreditation body;
- Make sure the provider employs auditors with proven expertise, extensive experience and industry-specific knowledge;
- Make sure it has a strong local capacity; and
- Make sure they understand your industry, territory and challenges. This understanding is the only way the provider can effectively assess an organization’s conformance to the spirit and the letter of management system standards.
BSI has been helping organizations across the globe make excellence a habit for more than a century. The company offers a full spectrum of services to help organizations work better, taking a total solutions approach that couples assessment and certification with other components.
