Half of all firms certified to ISO 9000 / ISO 9001, ISO 14000 / ISO 14001, ISO 45001 (formerly OHSAS 18001) hired outside help to get there. Expert consulting gets the job done with minimal headaches and (surveys have shown) twice as fast. In this, as with many other things, expert help pays for itself.
Learn about Kantner & Company's expert consulting services – helping you implement ISO 9001, ISO 14001, etc. Learn also about our contract internal audit services. Find out why we're the best.
Most clients hire us to help them set up their ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and/or ISO 45001 (formerly OHSAS 18001) system because they lack internal resources such as expertise and time. That's understandable. Setting up ISO is not what they do. It's what we do.
Here's how it works.
We visit your location for 2-4 days per month, working with members of your team to design and set up your ISO system and prepare it for successful certification audit.
While with you, we understand that you have "regular" work to do. So we take pains to be flexible – to work around your busy schedule – and to be as unobtrusive as possible. The typical consulting visit is a mix of activities, depending on the phase of the project:
- Document work
- Meetings and consultations
- Facility tours
- Training sessions
While on an on-site consulting arrangement with us, you are always free, between visits, to call or email us with questions. You'll get a detailed answer promptly, sometimes within the hour, almost always within one business day. There are never additional charges for these services. Nor do we charge clients for off-site preparation time.
During the project we maintain an ongoing to do list, and update it to you monthly, so that tasks assigned to your personnel, and to us, are tracked through to completion.

Some clients that already have ISO 9001 quality management systems choose to add environmental management (ISO 14001) and/or health/safety management (ISO 45001, formerly OHSAS 18001) to their systems.
We help you get this done without reinventing the wheel. Years ago we pioneered an integrated system process that blends and harmonizes the Standards to give you a single, simple, streamlined system that covers quality and/or environmental and/or health/safety.
This type of system helps you address the dimensions most critical to your success, while saving you costs (initial and ongoing) on support processes as well as internal audits, external audits, and registration costs.
Best of all, we tailor your add-on to mesh with the system you already have, whether we helped you create it or not.

For clients that decide not to do ISO internal audits themselves, we provide contract internal audit services at competitive rates.
Based on the schedule prescribed by you, we carry out internal audits at your location. We document our audit activity on specially prepared checklists. We give you a summary report itemizing system strengths and deficiencies found - citing the requirement, description of deficiency, and supporting evidence. We also tie audit results back to the international standards, with supporting documentation.
Our audits are typically more thorough and better documented than any external audit. The difference is, with our internal audit service you receive, at no extra charge, advice, guidance, and options for correcting deficiencies and improving your quality management processes.
