Virtual Cert™ – Advanced Surveillance & Recertification Procedures Program
American Global Standards (AGS) announces its new, exclusive Virtual Cert™ ASRP Program™ for ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 certification.
The reason for developing this program is simple: to save our customers thousands of dollars annually and top manager’s valuable time.
We realize in today’s market place, the value of ISO 9001 certification varies from company to company, for some it is a requirement to do business, for the others its value has been minimized as competitors have become certified.
The AGS Virtual Cert™ ASRP Program™ is based on the IAF Mandatory Document for Advanced Surveillance & Recertification Procedures Issue 1 (IAF MD3:2008). Customers will be issued certificates valid for three years based upon their existing certification and annual review by AGS of their Internal Audit & Management Review Meeting Summaries per the AGS Virtucal Cert™ ASRP Program™.
AGS Virtual Cert™ ASRP Program™ calls for statistical sampling of all AGS ASRP Program™ certified customers and allows for AGS to visit your facility with partnership and process focus approach. These sample audits are to confirm implementation of the clients system and is not a time consuming, “non-value added” exercise. There is no cost to the AGS ASRP™ certified customer if chosen for a sample on-site visit.
AGS is accredited by the American International Accreditation Organization, Bureau of Accredited Registrars (AIAO-BAR) an independent, trade organization with the same authority as any other accreditation body. AIAO has accredited registration in Europe, Japan, Korea, India, Central Asian Countries, Canada, England (UK), Mexico, Norway, Turkey, Brazil, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and the United States.
AGS Virtual Cert™ ASRP Program™ is a cost-effective and viable alternative to the “policeman” approach of other registrars. Feel free to contact AGS if you have any questions.
