" This is a great package, designed to help companies like ours to find their way through the minefield of ISO certification. "

Ian Cox (General Manager), OKW

" We needed a Quality Management System in place within 6 weeks to comply with major customer requirements. ISO in a Box was our saviour. Using this simple, workable system we gained full UKAS certification to ISO 9001 within the specified period. "

David Marshall (General Manager), Marshall Drills Ltd

" My experience with Equas and the ISO in a Box system has been a very good one. Equas were able to move to our pace and adjust accordingly as our needs and requirements changed. "

Graham Warren (Chief Operating Officer), NyNet Ltd

" I was absolutely terrified going into something like this with no prior experience or knowledge of ISO. The consultant gave me and our Board of Directors the confidence to go for two standards, ISO 9001 and 14001, and to add a third, OHSAS 18001. "

Kerry Lambson, First Rail Support

" An absolutely outstanding service doing exactly what you said you could do, on budget and on time. "

Ben Soames, Fox Delta Security

" Undertaking this project was quite daunting and very intensive at times but the consultant’s knowledge of our industry and his professionalism ensured for a smooth path to final audit. "

Martin Randall, Vale Prestige Chauffeurs

" Our allocated consultant was very flexible, supportive and clearly highly knowledgeable. The Activ system and ISO in a Box methodology are a fantastic resource, removing the headaches of document control and communication to staff. "

Christine Ellis, Customer Research Technology

" Equas has provided unrivalled support and help with the implementation of our ISO systems. To date we have gained UKAS-accredited certification to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. "
