TQCSI is regarded as the most professional certification body in the world. We audit and certify organisations to ISO Standards for all management systems in 40+ countries throughout Australia, the Pacific, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
Our objective is to provide a reliable. no nonsense and simple auditing and certification process for organisations to achieve ISO certification and continual improvement.
Like the rest of the community, COVID-19 is disrupting the certification sector, particularly audit schedules for achieving and maintaining certification to ISO management system standards.
Auditors are being prevented from travelling in many countries and many companies are closed anyway. To ensure as much flexibility as possible and ensure clients’ continued certification, TQCSI is liaising with our clients to defer audits a few months until some normalcy can return.
However, if all audits are postponed till the 3rd or 4th quarter of this year, there will not be enough auditors available for the number of outstanding audits! Moreover, in some countries different regions may allow companies to work but auditors may be prevented from travelling to those clients.
In these circumstances, TQCSI can audit remotely using various information and communication technology (ICT) techniques that are readily available to most businesses such as telephone, mobile phones, photography by mobile, access to intranets, teleconference meetings, MS Teams, Skype, GoToMeetings and Zoom, etc.
TQCSI is accredited by JAS-ANZ to conduct remote auditing and has been doing so for the past few weeks.
So certification of your management systems to the ISO Standards need not be jeopardised by the Coronavirus and you can focus on more pressing issues.
Read the open letter from Craig Bates, President of TQCSI, to clients and partners regarding COVID-19 and remote auditing here:
TQCSI becomes the first Australian certification body to be accredited to audit and certify companies to the Aviation, Space and Defence Standards.
TQCS International Pty Ltd (TQCSI), the largest JAS-ANZ accredited certification body (CB) in the world, has become the first Australian CB to be accredited to audit and certify companies to the Aviation, Space and Defence Standards – the AS 9100 Series.
US based ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) announced on 28 March 2020 that, following an intensive compliance testing and auditing process covering both TQCSI’s office management systems and witnessed audits of TQCSI’s auditors conducting client audits, it was formally accrediting TQCSI to audit companies to ISO 9001, AS 9100 D (Quality Management Systems for Aviation, Space and Defence organisations) and AS 9120 (Quality Management Systems for Aviation, Space and Defence Distributors).
This accreditation will enable Australia’s Aerospace and Defence industries to be served for the first time by an Australian company providing a customer focussed, high-quality service at a competitive price.
Accreditation follows an intensive period of investment, process development and training to enable TQCSI’s team of highly experienced auditors to deliver the rigorous standards demanded by the Aerospace and Defence industries.
TQCSI has also been supported by the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) via a Sovereign Industrial Capability Grant to develop this new sovereign capability in Australia.
Sean Moules, TQCSI’s Program Director, said ‘We are very proud to have achieved this sovereign capability for the Australian Aviation, Space and Defence markets, following an intensive year of effort to ensure our systems and people can deliver the exacting quality standards that aerospace demands.’
Craig Bates, TQCSI’s President, added ‘We look forward to providing these new certification standards to our growing customer base and to continue to grow and evolve TQCSI to meet customer demands and deliver the most professional certification services in the world.’
Craig Bates, President of TQCSI addresses the impacts of Coronavirus in the Auditing and Certification Industry as per March 2020.
