OPTION 4: DO IT ON YOUR OWN
What is it?
- Organisations may opt to purchase the ISO Management System Templates (R 12 000-00 ex. VAT) and follow the instructions to implement the system in-house.
- We recommend attending our ISO Lead Implementation course – providing advice and guidance to best implement the system independently.
What are the advantages?
This method of documenting a management system is the most cost-effective.
What are the disadvantages?
A Consultant functions to advise on what to do. Organisations and employees do not have the time to document Policies, Processes, Procedures, and standardise Forms which is an administrative burden and results in delays of the project.
To mitigate this, WWISE recommends Option 3 – Implementation.
Can a Consultant be outsourced on an ad hoc basis?
Yes. WWISE offers a number of hours or days to assist in guiding your implementation process.
What are the costs?
WWISE is not a Certification Body and cannot predict the costs of independent third-party Certification Bodies. It is important to note that when choosing a reputable Certification Body, they are accredited, and their accreditation body is linked with the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). This will assist the organisation in pursuing certification on the value of the ISO certificate they receive. An estimation of certification costs can be determined based on factors such as the scope, products and services, boundaries, locations, processes, and legal and other requirements once a Gap Assessment is conducted. Alternatively, Certification Bodies can be contacted directly, and an application form can be completed to understand the costs of certification fees over the 3 years.
