Kenward Trust once again achieves ISO 9001 certification

29th April 2017 / 

We are delighted to have once again achieved certification to the internationally recognised ISO 9001 standard, establishing it as one of the leaders in its field.

This independent assessment was conducted by the British Assessment Bureau, a leading Certification Body, and demonstrates Kenward Trusts commitment to customer service and quality in delivery.

The Trust was first accredited with the standard in 2014.  The audit on 31 March was for a full re-certification of the ISO 9001 standard (against our quality management systems).  We will now work toward transition to the new ISO 9001:2015 requirements. Kenward Trust can continue to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau quality shield and ISO 9001 logo to demonstrate its conformance to the standard.

ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do, and that they have a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed to ensure progress is being maintained.

The benefits of certification to ISO 9001 include:

  • Streamlining an organisation’s procedures;
  • Bringing consistency to an organisation’s service delivery;
  • Reducing cost and rework;
  • Improving an organisation’s management practices;
  • Enhanced status;
  • Competitive advantage;
  • Lower insurance premiums.
