How it used to be…

Until fairly recently most businesses were stagnating:

  • They had a QMS because it was a pre-requisite for a contract with a key client;
  • They kept a generic “quality file” in the cupboard that appeared a month before the audit;
  • “Quality Assurance” was the person checking or measuring the component before despatch;
  • Risk Assessments were what the “Health & Safety” person filled in for dangerous activities and nothing more;
  • They had an aging workforce but were reluctant to train staff yet. They had plenty of time;
  • They wanted lots of checklists completed as a tick in the box would demonstrate compliance….
And then…

Business changed. There was a paradigm shift in business requirements.

They realised that:

  • A properly implemented, bespoke QMS could help them run better, be leaner and ultimately be more profitable.
  • They needed a customised business assurance process;
  • They needed to identify and manage all risks, not just ensure compliance;
  • They realised that loss of reputation was one of their biggest risks;
  • They had lost their ageing workforce and now lacked the in-house technical expertise.
  • They would have to use contracted technical specialists.

Why use Universal Verification?

We were the people in the first box.

After more than 25 years working within industry, building up our knowledge base and specialisms, we decided that consultancy could be, and should be, run differently.

With a tsunami of people leaving our industries and a lack of people coming through, we pride ourselves on our industry knowledge and reputation and relationships.

We provide a dedicated, bespoke, professional service that is backed by our trusted network of associates specialising in all areas of Quality, Engineering, Health and Safety, Management Systems and Inspection.
