The Certification Process


Certification is the process which recognises that an organisation's management systems and processes meet global standards.

It captures how you do business and can be used to demonstrate to your clients and other stakeholders your commitment to continuous improvement and quality in all you do. 


The assessment & Certification process

  Initial Consultation to understand your business and certification needs

  Gap Analysis (optional) to identify your current levels of compliance with standards 

  Stage 1 Assessment - initial official review (corrections can be identified and implemented prior to final review)  

  Stage 2 Assessment - final review and assessment leading to certification  



Becoming Certified

Certification - upon successful assessment you will be awarded a Statement of Certification valid for 3 years    

Year One & Two Surveillance Assessment to ensure ongoing monitoring and implementation of systems and standards

Recertification - follows the same cycle as your initial certification and takes into account the improvements made during the previous 3 years

See what our clients have to say about Best Practice Certification


    Our business units were very happy that a good amount of time was planned for each area. The Best Practice assessors were very thorough and asked the right set of questions. We were also impressed with the knowledge and experience of the assessors and they did very well in understanding the processes of the business units in a short period of time. The audit planning was very effective and the Best Practice assessors came with a very positive approach towards the assessment.

  •  Compared to other certification bodies, Best Practice Certification were able to help us re-create our existing certified systems to make them more usable and focused on our actual operations. Our assessments have become a great support tool and an opportunity for managers to receive third party feedback, ensuring system compliance and best practices are achieved and continually improved.

  •  We value the relationship we have built with Best Practice and we continue to be satisfied with friendly, timely and courteous service. We appreciate the time the team dedicates to supporting Billbergia and understanding our business needs. Our Best Practice assessor always provides thorough assessment of our quality, safety and environmental management systems. This experience and insight into our business, the industry and standards have kept Billbergia ahead of changing requirements and enabled us to identify opportunities to enhance our systems.

  • We decided to go down the path of certification to enable us to offer our customers a premium product, and better position us against competitors that charge exorbitant prices for the build of sustainable homes. The certification process with Best Practice Certification was fantastic and ISO50001 dovetailed very nicely into our current operations.

  •  I wanted to express my appreciation to Dan for providing first class support and input whilst auditing the organisations Integrated managemen system since transferring from BSI to BPC. Dan was extremely knowledgable and personable with all levels of staff and navigated his way through all aspects of the business in a manner which assisted in overcoming this barrier with frontline staff and management.
I look forward to Dan returning in 2016 for the re certification audit, and will continue to recommend BPC to future clients requiring ISO certification services following such a great audit experience.

  • In the first year we have recouped the cost of the certification program by 400%. Based on the initial fees, we expect to achieve a 400 to 800% return on our investment per year, as we constantly improve and increase our production flow via our new quality and process controls. For us the program had provided remarkably good value, and we expect a financial return on our investment for many years to come.

    Operations Manager
  •  Just a quick note to thank you for your supportive and proactive way of undertaking our 4801 audit. It was very pleasing to have my many hours (weeks if not months!) of work not be ‘torn apart’. I genuinely look forward to tweaking our system so that we have a user friendly system that our staff will engage.



    Trent Holbrook | Builtwise Constructions

  •  I was very happy with the way the NDS audit was conducted. The auditors made the process smooth and easy and the way they approached our job seekers was fantastic. I will be recommending Best Practice Certification to all of our clients.
