The growth of AA certification


AA Certification is a UKAS accredited certification body. We certify our clients to the internationally recognised ISO Standards such as ISO 9001 – Quality Management Systems and the up and coming ISO 27001 – Information Security Management Systems standard. We serve a diverse range of clients ranging from accountancy firms to heavy industry and everything in-between. With over 20 years of experience and offices around the world we are a trusted name in ISO Certification.

AA certification has experienced strong growth in the last 12 months and we have ambitious plans to continue this momentum into the next 12 months. Through careful planning and investment we have expanded our services into the USA, Germany and Saudi Arabia and increased the scope of our UKAS accreditation allowing us to certify a broader range of industries.  In light of our expansion into these new territories, AAC will be making its name known by exhibiting at key events in those nations. In July a delegation from our head office in Cheltenham, UK will be heading over to Frankfurt, Germany to provide training to another group of future AAC Client Business Managers with a further delegation flying to the USA in August; these new recruits to AAC will add to our networks of assessors and support staff in those countries ready to welcome new clients into AAC.

Over the years we have built some great relationships with our clients enhancing our status as a trusted and reliable certification body. Our aim is to always add value to our client organisations rather than just be an overhead cost. We know that certification audits can sometimes seem daunting and many have had bad experiences, which is why we work hard to ensure our assessors are all well trained to conduct their audits in a professional and friendly manor.

We recently certified the cyber security company Prism Infosec to ISO 9001:2015 which was a key target for them in the business plan.

“ISO 9001 had been on the cards for a long time as we knew it would be a valuable tool for us providing a solid management structure for our business and giving us access to some really valuable clients. When the time came to action our business plan and look for a UKAS accredited certification body to help us we approached several companies for quotations. The prices between the various companies did vary but AAC were very reasonable, the deciding factor for us was their customer service. We had plenty of questions early on and they were happy to talk to us rather than fob us off to a webpage or automated helpline”… “We’re now looking to achieve ISO 27001 in the near future and we hope to do that with AAC again”.

We believe in our products and services; we believe that the family of ISO standards can be valuable additions to any business. We know the ISO standards promote continual improvement, consistency and efficiency. They can aid the reduction of wastage and overheads while providing a solid management framework. Crucially ISO certification gives customers, potential customer and investors’ confidence in an organisation and the way they operate.
