Continuing growth for Sunderland based ISO consultancy

Sunderland based, Compliant FM, are continuing their growth plans following an increased demand for their services during the last 18 months.

Compliant, which was launched in 2017, offer affordable, UKAS accredited, ISO certifications to businesses across the UK and have helped put in place hundreds of management systems, they have an ambitious five-year plan that will see well over 500 businesses become certified.

Backed by a wealth of experience within the quality industry and being commercially aware, they understand the need to provide a comprehensive, trusted and valued service model whilst also working with their clients on an individual basis to ensure all projects are completed within budget and on time.

Following what has been a challenging period for many businesses, a competitive edge and the ability to tender for public sector contracts are chances which cannot be missed and ISO certifications are the gateway to these opportunities.

The company certainly practices what they preach too, as well as the company itself, their director, Mark Henderson, is a BSI trained lead auditor across the five main ISO standards including quality, health & safety, environmental, business continuity and information systems, giving clients the extra assurance of their own service and competency.

The company are now one of the UK’s leading ISO certification consultancy bodies and an established partner of the British Assessment Bureau, their full service includes design, documentation, implementation support, training and a preliminary audit.

When the pandemic hit, like many businesses, they were uncertain as to whether their business would be detrimentally affected, however, they took the time and opportunity to invest in a new website, increase their sales and marketing activity and proactively promote their business via various north east networking organisations including NEPIC, the North East Automotive Alliance and the North East England Chamber of Commerce.

The decision has definitely paid off, with an increase in turnover and profit over the last 18 months, they have helped an array of businesses across the UK within sectors such as engineering, manufacturing, waste recycling, house building and even a Japanese exhibition house based in London.

Director, Mark Henderson, commented, ‘When I launched the business, I could see the need to deliver important industry accreditations to companies in ways which made it easy for business leaders to implement.

ISO certifications are essential for businesses hoping to win contracts big or small and for any organisation whether that be in the public or private sector and are important statements of credibility, integrity and competency.

The world of accreditations can feel like a complex and complicated world to the uninitiated and contrary to many opinions, the ISO process doesn’t need to be costly and time draining.

Those running companies are completely focused on delivering whatever their products or services are, as they should be, they simply don’t have the luxury to devote their time elsewhere, with our comprehensive and tailored offering, we help to make things simpler and easier for them.  Not only do we take them through the process of gaining those certifications but we can help them cope when it comes to ongoing compliance too.

We’re delighted with the growth of the company over the last 18 months and are looking forward to helping more businesses and expanding further in the coming months and years.”
