SBC Consultants Limited

Assessment

All our assessments are tailored to our client's needs.  Rarely will a simple ISO 9001 compliance audit provide the sort of information that enhances the customer-supplier relationship.  We will take the trouble to find out what you need to know, what your concerns and priorities are.  We will invite you to participate in the audit if you wish.  Most importantly, though, we will not swamp you with information.

We don't treat assessment visits purely as data-gathering exercises - data we then parcel up into a report for you to interpret.  Such exercises  often end up with a thick report you have to wade through to find the information you need (often to find it's not actually there).  By finding out what you want before we start, we can present you with what you need, whether it's a conclusion regarding suitability, areas and recommendations for improvement, or capability.

Furthermore, by focusing on your needs, we waste less of your supplier's time (and your money).  In fact, we often prefer to use the term appraisal instead of the more common audit.

Our assessments can incorporate health, safety and environmental management elements alongside quality.  We can also incorporate technical aspects by bringing appropriate experts onto an audit team - sometimes your own people, sometimes sourced by us.

Finally, we are not limited to mainland UK - we have audited as far afield as Japan, Australia and the USA.
