We provide a simple and inexpensive service for organisations that want to meet SME Standards. Here's how it works:
Our SME Standards are based on ISO management systems principles, but written to be more relevant for SMEs. Find out more about each Standard and choose the one that best suits your needs.
When you've chosen a Standard, use our free easy to follow online guides, templates and examples to meet the requirements and prepare for assessment. If you need additional support you can get in touch.
The SME Certification Centre was set up in response to a demand in the market for a simpler and cheaper alternative to Standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
Our SME Standards have been designed specifically for SMEs and each one is relevant and straightforward to implement. Knowing how tight budgets are for small businesses, we keep the cost of certification low but can provide additional support if you need it.
Our friendly team of experts and Assessors are ready to help you achieve SME Standards.
