Supporting Australian businesses is now more important than ever.

As a result of COVID-19 and the subsequent trade issues with China, Australia is experiencing its first recession in almost 30 years. More than a million people lost their jobs. Countless businesses were forced to shut down due to social distancing laws.

And now, we’ve seen a 7% decrease in the GDP over the last three months.

Australians are now being encouraged to purchase Australian products and services by their local government. Because of this, it’s important for businesses seeking certification to know who owns the business who is certifying them.

QMS Certification Services has been 100% Australian owned and operated since its establishment in 1994, unlike other certification businesses that are owned by overseas shareholders.

Now is the time to support local businesses and help strengthen the economy. In your interest and the interest of promoting Australian owned businesses, you can depend on QMS to deliver.

In this blog, we share some of the many benefits of working with a 100% Australian owned certification company. Read on.

#1. We are a fully accredited certification body

When working towards certification – whether it’s quality, environmental, or safety certification – you want to know your business is in good hands. At QMS, we’re fully accredited to work with businesses from all over the world, no matter the size of the business or the industry.

We are accredited by JAS-ANZ (Joint Accreditation System – Australia and New Zealand) and a long-time member of the IAF (International Accreditation Forum).

All Certificates of Approval are issued under the JAS-ANZ accredited system in Australia, which means you can rest assured knowing your certification will be legitimate.

#2. We understand the context of your business

As a 100% Australian owned and operated business, we naturally have an intimate understanding of the ins-and-outs of Australian and New Zealand-based industries.

Our experience runs deep across a range of industries including defence, construction and engineering, health and aged care, manufacturing, hospitality and food production, transport and logistics, and facilities management.

We know no two businesses are the same – every business faces its own challenges – which is why we bring a wide range of knowledge and experience to the table to ensure your business succeeds.

#3. We’re committed to building relationships with our clients

With QMS, you won’t be passed from assessor to assessor like a mechanical production line. Instead, you will be assigned an assessor who will also be your client manager, so you will only ever have to deal with one person.

No struggling to remember names, numbers, and roles. You’ll have one person who has a deep understanding of your business, your industry, your processes, and your needs and requirements.

We will also work with your schedule – not the other way around. We want to make the certification process simple and stress-free, so we will come and visit when it’s convenient for you and your team.
