APL needed to maintain their certification as some of their specialist products are designed, developed and manufactured for the MoD and holding ISO 9001 certification is a pre-requisite for being part of the MoD supply chain.
APL had purchased an ‘off the shelf’ quality management system and had gained certification to ISO 9001:2008 in 2011. One of the main objectives of the transition project was to simplify the system – we managed to reduce over 500 documents to just over 50, all of which were tailored to APL needs and much easier to integrate into the actual operations of the business.
APL gained certification to ISO 9001:2015 having passed their transition visit from ACS Registrars and we were really pleased to receive the following feedback from the Managing Director:
“Just wanted to say a big thank you from myself and our team for a successful ISO9001:2015 transition project. It was a real pleasure to work with engaged professionals who genuinely had an interest in our business and our staff. At long last, we have a QMS that’s about us and reflects exactly what we do in our business operations. Well done ConsultQA, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your services.”
