Tremark Associates and Tremark ASP Reaccredited for ISO9001 and BS102000

This May, Tremark Associates and Tremark ASP received the reaccreditation of their ISO9001 and BS102000 certifications, marking a decade of commitment to delivering quality. These international and British accreditations are more than just formalities; they are testament to our assurance of maintaining the highest standards in the private and professional investigations industry.

Understanding ISO9001 and BS102000

Whilst we have come to know these standards inside out, we do realise that they might not be in everyone’s need-to-know brain file so here I explain a bit more about what these two standards entail.

ISO9001 is an internationally recognised standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS). It provides a framework for organisations to ensure they meet customer and regulatory requirements while continually improving their processes. Achieving ISO9001 certification demonstrates that a company has a robust QMS in place, encompassing everything from leadership and planning to support, operation, performance evaluation, and improvement.

BS102000, on the other hand, is a British Standard for investigative services, specifically tailored to professional investigators and security companies. This standard sets forth the requirements for conducting investigations and security services ethically, legally, and professionally. It covers aspects such as managing client relationships, protecting confidential information, and ensuring that investigative procedures are both effective and compliant with legal standards.

The Role of Quality Management Systems

A Quality Management System (QMS) is a structured set of processes and procedures designed to ensure that an organisation can consistently deliver high-quality products or services. A QMS encompasses various elements, including:

Leadership and Commitment: Top management must be actively involved and committed to maintaining quality.

Customer Focus: Understanding and meeting customer needs and expectations.

Process Approach: Managing activities and resources as processes that work together to achieve the desired outcome.

Continuous Improvement: Regularly reviewing and improving processes to enhance performance and customer satisfaction.

Evidence-Based Decision Making: Making decisions based on the analysis and evaluation of data.
