Hiring an ISO Consultant

A couple of questions you should ask an ISO Consultant are; Have you got industry experience? Do you have the relevant qualifications in place? Remember; a good ISO Consultant will add value, bringing his/her experiences to the table. An experienced ISO Consultant should help your organisation overcome any issues or questions linked to the standard(s) you have chosen. They will also reduce the risk of starting down the wrong path, or missing critical requirements of ISO standard(s).
