Understanding ISO and the benefits it can bring your organisation

The intention of an ISO is to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products and services.

How easy is the process of becoming certified?
At CDL we have tried to make the process as straightforward as possible, so we created the 5 step process of becoming a ISO certified.
- Enquire and apply for ISO certification – purchase of manuals
- CDL provide the manuals
- Your organisation acknowledges the responsibilities of the manuals
- The Certification can be issued (12 months expiry)
- Prior to the expiry to the certificate a surveillance audit is required.
Once the audit is complete and successful, then the organisation can be provided with re-certification for a further 12 months.
