Understanding Certifications, Standards and Best Practies

ISO certifications are published by the International Organization for Standardization in a wide range of areas including quality management, technology, security, food safety management and occupational health and safety. Other Standards such as NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) a USA government initiative with activities in physical science areas such as Cyber Security, Risk Management Framework, Privacy Framework and Information Security. These standards as well as many others are evolving rapidly inline with technology advancements to assist organisations manage their security, quality, environmental impact, health and safety of their personnel effectively. They provide “requirements, specifications, guidelines, or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes, and services are fit for their purpose.”

Why does your organisation need Certifications or Framework?

A Certification is an investment in your company’s future opportunities. For some industries, certification is a mandatory requirement to bid for government tenders. Others will benefit through ways they didn’t even expect delivering quantifiable savings and improvements. Essentially, certification confirms your compliance to a framework, whether it is to manage your Information Security, Quality Control, Environmental Impact or Work Health and Safety. Some organisation may only wish to implement the framework and not bother with certification – this in some cases is quite acceptable and in some instances. Not all standards are certifiable and most are developed as guidelines or best practices to assist businesses work effectively.


Certification offers proof of your organisation’s ability to meet the requirements by independent (certifying body), and in turn customer satisfaction. Below are the top five key benefits your organisation will derive through certification:


  1. In-depth analysis of your systems to Identify and solve recurring problems.
  2. Improved system and process efficiency.
  3. Increased competitive when tendering for contracts.
  4. Reassurance for clients in the delivery of quality services and products.
  5. Sound work practices and satisfaction for employees and management
