ISO 9001 Accreditation Program

Build the foundation to a strong business


Hansei Technologies essentially embodies 3 main principles; People, Process and Technology. With over 30 years of experience in Industry and Lean Management we have developed a proven track record in business improvement. We place a high emphasis on employee engagement, enabling our clients to maximise their opportunities and through targeted process development programs we ensure a tangible return on investment, whilst at the same time nurturing a positive culture across the organisation.


With a performance based analytical process, we have been able to deliver the highest quality of training during that time. With experience in a range of industries we have toned our skills to suit whatever industry we are required in, with manufacturing specialism. We possess a varied skill set, enabling through our Business Improvement offerings to deliver effective and efficient solutions to our customers.


The objective of this program is to provide a platform for business’s to complete all qualifying criteria in preparation for full ISO9001 accreditation. ISO9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. The program also serves as a foundation for embedding a Continuous Improvement Culture within a business. The program usually covers a period of 8 months and splits the work into 4 phases, this is to ensure a robust implementation that minimises disruption to the business and employees, whilst at the same time maximising any Continuous Improvement opportunities that may arise.

How do we get there?

Phase 1 – Scope, Strategy & Gap Analysis
Phase 1 concentrates on the communication and business planning element of ISO9001. This is to ensure a full understanding of the standard, business commitment and support required. A high-level overview of ISO9001 requirements will be rolled out across the company to help set direction and vision of the initiative. Hansei Technology will support and guide the business in the construction of the 2018 Business Plan and Policy, clearly defining Scope of work. Once the strategy is set a full ISO9001 Gap analysis will be carried to allow planning of further phases. It is envisaged that phase 1 will be completed over a 4-day period, 3 days dedicated on site  and 1 further day off site collating the detailed accreditation timing plan.

Phase 2 – Information Gathering

Phase 2 is divided into 7 key sections, those are detailed on the left. Each section will take approximately 2 days to complete, the plan is scheduled over a 4-month period, equating to about 14 man days’ work on site per month. As the Gap analysis is completed this part of the plan may well reduce or increase based on findings, there may well also be opportunities for the business to complete some the phase 2 work themselves, again this will become more evident during the gap analysis.

Phase 3 Documentation Control

Phase 3 will concentrate on the collation of all standardised documentation, categorisation into a document control system and central storage on a cloud based SharePoint system. Storage is required in this way to ensure documents can be easily accessed and retrieved by anybody in the organisation. The system will need to have clear ownership and accountability within the business to ensure there is an element of control and flexibility. It is estimated in our experience that Phase 3 will take 3 – 5 man days to complete, this would be confirmed upon successful completion of phase 2.

Phase 4 Audits & Accreditation

Phase 4 will consist of a final audit, to be carried out by Hansei Technology prior to accreditation audit. Any snagging points identified can be addressed during this phase. We would then look to engage with the external accreditors to audit and issue ISO9001:2015 Accreditation.

Testimonials & Featured Clients

I had the pleasure of working with Steve on a Transformation Project at FirstPort during 2017. He is a brilliant team player and people person who is really dedicated to his work and brings together a multitude of skills to get the best out of any situation. I have really valued the time we worked together and would have no hesitation in recommending him for further Lean Six Sigma Projects.

Lorna Kassoul, FirstPort Property Management Consultant

Steve helped me to not only manage to my nerves to a point where I actually did the 10 minutes’ presentation, but I actually ended up enjoying it. I also can only compliment his ability to make the content appealing to the audience. Steve did not know my business at all, but helped make my presentation matter to me and clear enough for the room to be interested as well. Thank you Steve

Steve’s coaching and guidance over the last year have been invaluable. He has been much more than just a soundboard to bounce ideas off. Steve has helped me with his knowledge of people, business and of course Lean Six Sigma as it pertains to my business. I recommend having a coffee with him to see just how different and effective his approach is.

I can highly recommend Steve, not only because of his exceptional technical knowledge, but also for his training delivery and mentoring skills. 
Steve has made the topic of Lean Sigma Six enjoyable and I feel that with his guidance and support, I too can now deliver great things for my company. 
Thank you so much Steve. Keep in touch!

Richanah Daly, FirstPort Customer Services Team Leader

I am currently on placement from Harper Adams University at Muller in a Continuous Improvement role. I approached Steve from Hansei to help with my self-devolvement as being relatively inexperienced within lean six sigma and personal skills such as leadership. Since my coaching programme began I feel much more confident to lead effectively. I have also used lots of lean manufacturing techniques to great success in the projects I have carried out since my time at Muller. The coaching programme works really well for myself as I gain valuable knowledge from training while tracking my progress as I go along. Using the standard format helps to highlight my weakness so I can then ask advice from Steve on how to develop and turn this into a strength. I would highly recommend following a coaching programme with Hansei, not only do you get a structured programme but the wealth of experience and knowledge of the Hansei Staff.

...Steve worked with me on creating and delivering a compelling, professional, Insightful and inspiring presentation to around 500 business partners from all over the UK. Although I speak at events often, I really did want to start the New Year with a great presentation that got people excited about what our industry can offer and I have to say I got so much value from the sessions I had, that I plan to continue to use Hansei to assist in developing other areas of my business...
