Know the Role of ISO Consultants
When an organization planning for a new ISO Certification, ISO 9001 or ISO 13485, or any other ISO Certification, the first question in front of the management is, do we need an ISO Consultant? Or can we do it by ourselves? The answer depends on your organization and employees. Suppose you are a large organization with employees having sufficient knowledge and expertise in quality management systems. In that case, you can develop a quality system suitable for your organization as per ISO standards without the help of external ISO Consultants.
If you are a small or medium organization, hiring an external ISO consultant is better. Developing a new quality management system is not an easy task; it involves a lot of documentation and need, knowledge, experience, and human resources. Most organizations do not wish to divert the workforce to ISO documentation from their routine; instead, they prefer to hire an ISO consultant for ISO Documentation.
Selection of ISO Consultant
Developing a quality system per ISO standard (ISO 9001 or ISO 13485) requires a frequent site visit and may take 3-6 months. To reduce the consultant’s travel and lodging expenses, prefer a local ISO consultant. Ensure the consultant you selected has enough knowledge and experience in relevant ISO standards.
