Achieving ISO certification can be a long and arduous process that’s not only time-consuming but habitually inefficient.

Naturally, any one of those terms will likely be met with widespread disapproval from any self-respecting business owner. After all, who wants to willingly subject their business to laborious inefficiency?

Luckily, there is a new way to go about ISO certification and, much like the rest of the world these days, it’s digital, it’s online and it’s undoubtedly the future.

Better still, the future is already here!

 

Company Benefits of Digital ISO Certification

Digital ISO certification provides businesses with an efficient and economical way of attaining ISO accreditation online. Gone are the wearisome days and costly delays associated with the physical accreditation process, instead replaced with unobtrusive integration and online efficiency.

From a financial standpoint, digital ISO certification usually provides a cheaper option right away. Meanwhile, the demand on human resources is also far less taxing, freeing up man-hours and staff alike, allowing you to put those resources to better use elsewhere.

The online process also allows businesses to check whether or not companies are ISO certified, providing full transparency for all.

 

Environmental Benefits of Digital ISO Certification

Taking your ISO certification journey online naturally reduces the amount of paperwork involved which, in turn, positively benefits the environment. That much is fairly obvious.

However, what you may not have considered is that the online nature of digital ISO certification also removes the need for a physical auditor to attend your business premises in person, thus eliminating unnecessary travel needs.

While this may not seem like much, imagine if numerous companies took their ISO certification online and you multiplied the effect tenfold or more.

That travel would then translate into a notable difference in terms of fuel and CO2 emissions, thus making digital ISO certification ecologically as well as financially beneficial.

ISO 14001 is the internationally-recognised standard for environmental management systems.

A company can implement an environmental management system (EMS) in order to minimise the impact of their operations on the world around us.

Once implemented, an EMS may be audited and awarded ISO 14001 certification if it complies with ISO standards.

Visit ISO.org for more information on ISO 14001 >

 

Does my company need an environmental management system?

Adhering to an ISO 14001-certified EMS is a great way to limit the environmental impact of your organisation.

REQUIREMENTS: In order to achieve ISO 14001 certification, you will need to demonstrate that every part of your organisation is adhering to your EMS and working to achieve continual improvement as regards your environmental impact.

If you're committed to doing as little damage as possible to the world around us, you may wish to consider pursuing digital ISO 14001 certification. Getting certified online reduces carbon emissions because there's no need for auditors to travel to your location.

Climate protest sign

In September 2019, Swedish climate campaigner Greta Thunberg sat before members of Congress and urged them to "take real action" on climate change.

"I don't want you to listen to me," said the 16-year-old. "I want you to listen to the scientists. I want you to unite behind the science and I want you to take real action."

Thunberg has become the face of a global youth movement that's seen young people all over the world walking out of their classrooms to attend climate protests. The impact of this campaign has been phenomenal - just take a look at the SchoolStrike4Climate hashtag on Twitter!

What is USAS doing to help?

We at USAS believe that everyone needs to take action in order to overcome the existential threat of climate change.

Our digital certification services are helping to reduce carbon emissions by taking auditors - and their cars - off the road for good.

We have already calculated that we have taken 25 auditors off the road, keeping 185 metric tonnes of CO2e out of Earth's atmosphere in the process!

UK and USA flags waving

With the UK scheduled to leave the European Union on October 31, the British government has high hopes for a new trade deal with the USA.

Speaking at last month's G7 summit, President Donald Trump stated: "We're going to do a very big trade deal, bigger than we've ever had with the UK."

Business ties between the UK and the United States are likely to become much closer after Brexit. As a result, many British organisations are already looking to do more business with clients on this side of the Atlantic.

 

USAS Certification for UK Companies

If you are a UK-based business owner and you're looking to secure ISO certification for your organization, we strongly recommend getting certified via a USAS-accredited certification company.

USAS is headquartered in Florida, USA. Getting certified through a USAS-accredited provider will heighten your company's credibility in the eyes of American clients, and since you'll be able to complete the whole certification process online, you'll save time and money as well!
