Getting you registered - our approach

Whether you want to improve your existing management processes, reduce your impact on the environment or protect your most valuable assets, HPA can design and implement Standards systems that are tailored to the needs of your organisation.

Working within a philosophy of keeping things simple and building upon your existing systems, we use the following framework to audit, plan and implement your standards compliance on the road to successful third-party assessment:

  1. Compliance Audit - we carry out a compliance audit to ascertain the extent to which your business already meets the requirements of the standards in question. We identify, compare and review any gaps that exist in your systems before establishing a plan of action to take you forward.
  2. Planning & Design - in the second stage of our work with your organisation, we document the manual and procedures necessary to enable you to achieve certification and improve your internal effectiveness. The procedures are as far as possible based on your current procedures and documentation.
  3. Implementation - in the implementation stage, we use the plan of action to map out the road ahead for your organisation in terms of the activities needed to attain certification. This is where your managers and teams take up the mantle of implementing our recommendations, and we'll support you at every stage with a constructive review process.
  4. Certification - when you are ready to be assessed, we will facilitate the audit and certification process with an officially accredited UKAS assessment body - taking your business from the start to the successful completion of the whole compliance process.
