Quality Assurance

PIB Risk Management can assist your organisation to drive efficiency and high performance within your business sector. We can help you achieve ISO accreditation by conducting an analysis of your management systems against International Standards.

What is ISO?

ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) is an independent, non-governmental, international organisation with a membership of 165 national standards bodies. Through its members, ISO shares knowledge and develops voluntary, consensus based, market relevant International Standards that ensure quality, safety and efficiency across almost every industry.

What are the management standards?

Keep your accreditation current

ISO 9001 and 14001 management standards are reviewed every 5 years. Whilst the ISO 9001 and 14001 management standards remain separate standards, they can be considered as an integrated management system by the organisation. This means each standard in some aspects can be achieved via provision of similar types of evidence.

How can we assist your organisation?

ISO management system standards provide a model to follow when setting up and operating a management system. These standards can be applied to any organisation, large or small, whatever the product or service, across all sectors. These standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. They act as a strategic tool that reduce costs by minimising waste and errors and increase productivity. PIB Risk Management can assist your organisation to achieve the following standards:

ISO 9001 – Quality Management

Provides guidance and tools to organisations who want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet their customer’s requirements, and that quality is consistently improved.

ISO 14001 – Environmental Management

Provides practical tools for organisations hoping to manage their environmental responsibilities and focuses on systems to achieve this. This standard looks at specific approaches such as audits, communications, labelling and life cycle analysis, as well as environmental challenges such as climate change.

ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems

Requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, and gives guidance for its use, to enable organizations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving its OH&S performance.

ISO 27001– Information Security

A specification for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS), this standard is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes.


To achieve and maintain accreditation for the above standards, an annual internal audit of your organisation’s management systems is required. This process will be devised in the form of a monthly audit schedule to determine which components of your management system are to be audited each month.

PIB Risk Management can assist with this implementation programme through conducting an initial analysis against the standards. We can work with you to implement or develop your system and assist your organisation during the application process for ISO accreditation through one of the bodies accredited by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service).

Whether it is an initial audit of one or two aspects, or an ongoing audit process of your entire management system, our professionals will work with you to ensure your organisation is fully compliant.
