About Us

SMS Ltd started in 1994 and is well established in the UK with an enviable track record of over 750 clients achieving registration. We have worked with small and large UK organisations in both the public and private sectors ranging from software developers to chartered surveyors, electronics to construction and landscapers to English language schools to name but a few. It is the experience of working within a wide variety of industries that gives us the knowledge to assist other UK organisations in improving their management systems.

Our Services

We provide a complete service through to registration and beyond.

Writing We write the documentation based on current working practices in a simple and flexible style which is understood by everyone and identify improvements for the benefit of the organisation. We guarantee the documentation will meet the requirements of the standard(s).

Implementation We assist with the implementation by advising on improvements and different approaches to making the system work well for the organisation.

Auditing Auditing is a crucial element of the management system. We provide training on internal auditing or we complete the internal audit programme on behalf of the client.

Maintenance Once registration is achieved we offer support in maintaining the system to ensure the external audit runs smoothly and maximum benefit is gained from the system as an important management tool for the company. We undertake internal audits, management reviews and generally ensure all the records are in place. Contact us for a quotation for maintaining your system.

Integrated Management Systems Organisations are combining standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 into one system. There is commonality between the standards which lends itself to the development of one Integrated Management System. One system controlling and continually improving the performance of all these important business elements will be far more effective both in time and cost than stand alone systems.
