Phase 1 – Information Capture:
After getting the project authorization and formal go-ahead from the accounts department, the consultant for that specific project is assigned by GM Operations after careful examination of the work scope. Once the consultant assigned, he visits client facility and conducts interviews with key management and staff to ascertain the current practices of the company, to see where you already comply with the standard and how much work to be completed. The notes taken from Phase 1 become the basis for the next phase.
Phase 2 – Documentation Preparation:
Qdot Consultant prepares management system documentation based on the results of the Phase 1 interviews. The resulting documentation is fully customized, based on the company’s current practices, and only introduces new or modified practices where the company either does not meet a requirement at all or where current practice deviates from a requirement. Boilerplate documents are not used, and your staff is not assigned any writing duties however assistance & cooperation from the client’s staff is expected during the extraction of the required information.
Phase 3 – Implementation and Training:
Qdot Consultant returns on-site and provides guidance in implementing the management systems, train employees and internal auditors, and conduct the first round of required internal audits. We facilitate a management review, including a review of the process objectives. At the end of Phase 3, your company is ready for third party certification auditing.
Phase 4 – Certification Audit:
Qdot Consultant will attend the audit and provide on-site assistance and facilitation of the audit, ensuring a smooth and effective audit by the Certification Body, and ensuring that Certification Body auditor does not deviate from international accreditation rules, or “makeup” requirements that do not exist.
