Selecting QMS Consultants

Is there an ISO Standard for everything??

ISO 10019:2005 provides guidance for the selection of quality management system consultants and the use of their services.

It is intended to assist organizations when selecting a quality management system consultant. It gives guidance on the process for evaluating the competence of a quality management system consultant and provides confidence that the organization’s needs and expectations for the consultant’s services will be met.

While the concepts in the standard are sound, interpreting and adapting the standard to meet your individual business needs is critical.

Key selection objectives:

  • Ensure the consultant has a proven track record
  • Ensure the plan is focused with achievable objectives
  • Ensure the project time frame is in line with senior management expectations
  • Ensure costs are well understood before making a commitment
  • Ensure the final QMS will be effective

Ensuring the final QMS will be effective is the most important of the above objectives.  If the consultant delivers a complex QMS that exceeds the organization’s capability for maintaining it, the organization will ultimately fail. A successful QMS must be simple to implement, operate, audit, and improve.
