We understand that each organisation is different, which is why AIMS Consultancy provides tailor-adopts a tailor-made approach, designed to your own individual requirements to enable you to implement and maintain the following management systems effectively:
- Quality – ISO 9001:2015
- Environmental – ISO 14001:2015
- Health & Safety – ISO 45001:2018
Our primary areas of work are focused on ISO Standards with complimentary remote support via telephone and e-mail for all current and new clients. All support is tailored to your business needs and can be provided on-site or off-site, as required.
Comprehensive, objective auditing can be undertaken to verify compliance against International Standards (ISO) and internal procedures or processes. Our auditing services will ensure impartiality.
Our audits are focused around adding value by providing an unbiased assessment of the business to identify improvements, assist in developing efficiencies and share best practice protocols. We will discuss any significant findings with you and provide you with the completed audit report.
We can provide fixed cost packages to implement ISO standards or attain other certifications. We’ll assist every step of the journey and manage the process, from booking the correct audit duration for your company, to receiving initial as well as certification audits from the assessment body.
In the first instance, we’ll visit you at your premises and undertake an initial review to provide you with a proposal, outlining the recommended support package based on your company sector, size, and the current systems in place. We’ll then conduct a gap analysis of the business against the relevant standard, after which we’ll create or develop documentation to comply, and then verify compliance of your processes. When developing your system, we’ll bear in mind consistency throughout the documentation and ensure relevant documents include your branding requirements.
After implementation, most clients opt for ongoing maintenance to ensure compliance is upheld in accordance with the respective standard. If you already hold formal registration to ISO standard, certification bodies recognise that many businesses utilise the expertise of consultants to assist in maintenance of the system. The actual level of maintenance will depend upon your internal resources and expertise. Maintenance is one of our most popular options to ensure your management system(s) is kept fully up to date and compliance is maintained both onsite and remotely. We will also manage and book certification audits from the relevant assessment body and proactively maintain ongoing registration in your behalf to ensure compliance is maintained.
Ad hoc support and guidance can also be provided upon request which can be utilised to cover specific projects, annual leave or aid with general business improvement. Typical types of support delivered include:
- Gap analysis (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001)
- Certification and accreditation assistance (various accreditations and registrations)
- Supply chain verification and auditing
- Full documentation inclusive of mandatory procedures, policies and documentation

Migration and Transition
ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 were both republished in 2015 and ISO 45001 became an international standard in 2018, replacing BS OHSAS 18001. These changes to the standards will have no effect on new applications or any previously booked certification audits. The migration period for BS OHSAS 18001, to ISO 45001, has been extended to September 2021 due to covid-19.
