You are invited to attend Invest NI's free half-day workshop aimed at de-mystifying the ISO 9001 accreditation process. The series of workshops will be held throughout the Invest NI office network and will help you to understand the benefits of accreditation and explain how you can take the first steps to implementing this quality management system in your company.
Recent research has shown that companies who hold an accredited standard have more success when tendering and becoming pre-qualified for contract opportunities generated by major public and private sector contracts.
If you would like to give your business a competitive edge when responding to tenders for major public and private sector work, you should attend the ISO 9001 workshop which aims to help you qualify for more tenders and win more orders!
