UK ISO audits

British Made

We are British business helping other businesses in the UK. I started out running from a small rented room in Blackpool with an entrepreneurial spirit, and a desire to help. Today, we help hundreds of businesses achieve certification and improve their processes every year.

We want to help you meet and exceed customer expectations.

  The Benefits of ISO9001 standards

ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organisation:

a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and

b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organisation, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.

   The Benefits of ISO14001 standards

Awareness of environmental problems is growing in most countries and it is believed that current development patterns cannot be sustained in the long term. Governments are increasingly enacting legislation aimed at protecting the environment, and customers are requiring their suppliers to incorporate best practices and demonstrate compliance with environmental requirements.

The publication of the ISO 14001 standard for environmental management systems (EMS) has proved to be very successful, as it is now implemented in more than 159 countries and has provided organizations with a powerful management tool to improve their environmental performance. More than 324 000 organizations have been certified worldwide against ISO 14001 at the end of 2014, which is an increase of 7 % compared to 2013. Many companies have improved their operations by reducing the adverse impact their activities, processes, products and services have on the environment using a systematic approach embodied in ISO 14001.

  The Benefits of ISO27001 

Keeping sensitive company information and personal data safe and secure is not only essential for any business but a legal imperative. Many organisations do this with the help of an information security management system (ISMS). The international guidance standard for auditing an ISMS has just been updated. 

Software attacks, theft of intellectual property or sabotage are just some of the many information security risks that organisations face. And the consequences can be huge. Most organisations have controls in place to protect them, but how can we ensure those controls are enough? 

The ISO27001:2013 is changing to ISO27001:2022

The Benefits of ISO45001 standards

ISO 45001:2018 is applicable to any organisation that wishes to establish, implement and maintain an OH&S management system to improve occupational health and safety, eliminate hazards and minimize OH&S risks (including system deficiencies), take advantage of OH&S opportunities, and address OH&S management system nonconformities associated with its activities.

ISO 45001:2018 helps an organization to achieve the intended outcomes of its OH&S management system. Consistent with the organisation's OH&S policy, the intended outcomes of an OH&S management system include:

a) continual improvement of OH&S performance;

b) fulfilment of legal requirements and other requirements;

c) achievement of OH&S objectives.

The Benefits of ISO50001 standards

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organisations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements for organisations to:

  • Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
  • Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
  • Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
  • Measure the results
  • Review how well the policy works, and
  • Continually improve energy management.

The Benefits of ISO22716 standards

ISO 22716 provides guidance to documenting and regulating the production, control, storage, and shipment of cosmetic products. The standard’s guidelines will provide your organization with practical methods for managing the many factors that can affect product quality.

The European Union’s Regulation (EC) No 1223/2000 requires cosmetic products to be manufactured according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). GMPs create the practical development of quality assurance through the description of the activities that are based on sound scientific judgement and risk assessments. GMP guidelines were written to define the activities that enable you to obtain a product that meets defined characteristics. GMPs are critical to organisations looking to reduce the risk and liability of their products. Your organisation can demonstrate compliance with GMP by implementing ISO 22716.

Benefits of ISO 22716 certification for your organisation:

  • Improves quality management systems
  • Demonstrates commitment to the safety of cosmetic products
  • Ensures your compliance to international guidelines

Compassrose LTD brings in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing processes and GMP codes to cosmetics manufacturers. Intertek’s cosmetics testing services include clinical studies, safety assessments, quality control, in vitro testing, product claims verification, screening for restricted substances, and suppliers’ audits. With our global network of auditors, we provide a full compliance solution for ISO 22716 including auditing and certification*, training, and e-learning tools.

By partnering with Intertek, you’ll gain a knowledgeable business partner dedicated to helping you meet objectives, minimize risk, and optimize your supply chain. We can also combine a Cosmetics GMP audit with other standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, reducing interruptions and saving you valuable time and money.

The Benefits of ISO13485 standards

ISO 13485 is a stand-alone QMS standard, derived from the internationally recognised and accepted ISO 9000 quality management standard series. ISO 13485 adapts the previous version of ISO 9001, ISO 9000:2008 process-based model for a regulated medical device manufacturing environment. While ISO 13485 is based on the ISO 9001 process model concepts of Plan, Do, Check, Act, it is designed for regulatory compliance; therefore it is more prescriptive in nature and requires a more thoroughly documented QMS.

ISO 13485 was written to support medical device manufacturers in designing a QMS that establishes and maintains the effectiveness of their processes. It ensures the consistent design, development, production, installation and delivery through to disposal of medical devices that are safe for their intended purpose.
