Transform Your Business Operations with TÜV SÜD’s Auditing and Certification Services


What ARE Quality Management Systems?

Management systems help organisations large and small improve business operations, reduce risk and achieve a competitive edge. Management systems such as ISO 9001 and ISO 45001 provide a framework for companies to assess their processes.

Management system auditing and certification involves independent experts assessing your processes to discover areas of improvement. A certification confirms the compliance of your processes to relevant standards.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently amended its Management System Standards (MSS) to emphasise climate change. Organisations implementing these standards must now acknowledge climate change's impact on their operations and actively engage stakeholders, such as customers and communities, to address this critical external issue.

  • The ISO Audit Process Explained

    1. Pre-sales & Order Confirmation

    TÜV SÜD prepares individual offer/s based on the questionnaire/s submitted. The organisation must give us order confirmation.

    2. Audit Planning

    TÜV SÜD reviews your questionnaire to develop the audit plan and coordinates the audit process.

    3. Audit Action

    TÜV SÜD conducts Stage 1 audit on-site, updates original audit plan, and completes certification audit Stage 2.

    4. Any Deviations?

    Your organisation implements corrective measures to address non-conformances identified by TÜV SÜD.

    5. Certification Issuance

    A positive decision by TÜV SÜD allows your organisation to use the certificate and the certification mark.

    Annual audits and recertification audits required to maintain certification validity.
