February 2018 - BDS ahead of the game! – when Quality counts we deliver.

BDS have always been audited and certified to ISO 9001 for our Quality Management Systems so when we heard that the old standard would become obsolete in September of 2018 we set to work on understanding the task ahead.

This was not so easy to grasp, and we invested in the process by sending our Compliance Manager, Graham Hawkins, to the NSI’s offices in Maidenhead to attend their course in the Transition from ISO9001-2008 to the new standard ISO 9001-2015. So now with a certificate to say we understand the task in hand and a clearer plan of what we needed to do, we worked through the changes and came out the other side with a new compliant QMS and, following our audit in December last year, we are now proud to announce: We did it!<

And as proof of our achievement, please see our new ISO 9001-2015 NSI FIRE GOLD & NSI NACOSS SECURITY GOLD certificates in the Accreditations section of our website. Or alternatively click on either image below to see the full certificate...
