Gaining certification against an internationally recognised standard means that your management system has been tried, measured and found compliant. For many, a certificate confirming compliance is a ticket to trade.
While a ticket-to-trade may provide a foot-in-the-door and get you on that supplier list, the hidden treasure of any management system is its ability to help any organization continually improve its processes and enable that organization to reach its organizational/business goals.

Today's organisations require an audit approach that helps improve your management system by taking a broader view on what drives your business success.
