Equas is a management consultancy, based in Chepstow with consultants UK-wide, which specialises in helping companies to improve their management systems, thereby enabling them to become more efficient and to achieve more of their strategic objectives.
Our simple and highly cost-effective methodology and framework, ISO in a Box, which to date has helped over 1700 companies to achieve certification/accreditation to ISO and other internationally recognised standards and to gain all the benefits that these standards were designed for.
Our consultancy methodologies and software tools have been designed to embody Equas' philosophy that all management systems have a simple purpose: to enable an organisation to satisfy its customers' requirements and to minimise business risk.
Equas is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 for both its consultancy services and Activ software.
ISO in a Box is our tried and tested methodology for helping organisations to efficiently achieve UKAS-accredited ISO certification. Our clients have a 100% success rate in passing certification audits and implementing more effective management systems. While the methodology we use is consistent, the type of support we provide and the system we build is bespoke to each client.
In addition to helping organisations to achieve ISO certification, we also offer all aspects of ongoing management systems maintenance including:
- Improving existing management systems and documentation to improve their effectiveness
- Conducting internal audits and management reviews
- Verifying applicable legal requirements and assessing compliance
- Managing external audits
- Delivering awareness and internal auditor training
