It can’t be the end of 2022 already…Can it?
Oh yes, it can!
For many, it has been a troubled if not a tempestuous year. Combine war in Europe (Ukraine), an energy crisis, a minor financial meltdown, and a supply shortage, particularly in semiconductors, and that’s more than enough to fill the year.
However, at P+P, this year has once more been busy and productive, and we are grateful to our long-term clients who remain with us.
The year also includes some notable firsts:
- Evans Instruments of Thetford achieved registration to ISO 13485, the quality standard for Medical Devices, in conjunction with the certification body NQA. Well done to Alli, Barry and all in the Evans’ team.
- IQ Workspace achieved ISO9001 by the end of September. This was a truncated project, that only commenced in August. For this programme, P+P and the company worked with a ‘new’ registration body, 3 Core2 – a very smooth start to our relationship.
- With the recovery from the Pandemic, we are working with 4 Bay Structures to reinstate their registrations to ISO14001 (EMS) and ISO145001 (H&S), to sit with the established ISO9001 programme.
- Syrinix achieved their ISO27001 certification with CertificationPlus – a very smooth audit thanks to some serious effort from the client
Data Security remains a very important issue in these uncertain times. For some of our clients, ISO27001 Certification has moved from a ‘nice-to-have’ to an absolute requirement, if they wish to trade with larger organisations or government entities. To keep pace with the rapidly changing environment of cyber security, the Standard itself has been updated (from the 2013 issue to the latest 2022 revision). We are now helping clients with preparations for the transition to the new version which will become mandatory in 2025.
The P + P Team
At P+P we have finally realised that we are getting older (yes, really!). That, together with an increasing demand for our services, means we need some help. As such we are looking for extra resources (in the form of additional associates) to boost our capabilities. If this is of interest to you, or anyone you know, then please give us a call, email, etc. and we can have a chat.
From the year that was 2022, we are sure that you deserve a decent break. Then gird your loins for the challenges of 2023 (but do let us know if we can help).
Very best regards!
Laurence Brooks and the P+P team
