ISO certifications have become a mandate for companies, both big and small across all the industry verticals. These certifications act as a testament to the quality of the company’s operations and it also showcases the efficiency of the business as a whole. There are many variations of ISO certification including the ISO 9001 which is most popular and the one that most of the companies generally aim for. These certifications help you have better control over your business operations and increases your consistency. It is hard for companies to apply and attain ISO certifications on their own, this is where ISO certification consultants or ISO consultants as they are commonly referred to comes into action. The recent dilution in the ISO consultants’ space has led to many incompetent players entering the market as consultants and that has adversely affected the reputation of the industry as a whole.
Understanding the situation, QCI (Quality Council of India) started an empanelment process in which they started measuring the competency of consultants by various tests and interviews and the qualified Consultants were declared in three categories as Consultants, Senior Consultants, and Principal consultants. Altogether, the total number of consultants from these three categories are 42 and only 7 (the topmost) are principal consultants. It is also mandatory for government organizations that they only select consultants from this empanelled list. Hence, it is important for a company looking for ISO certification to go for any of the 42 empanelled consultants to achieve the best results.
