GAAPS Actuarial has gained accreditation to the global standard ISO 9001:2008. This is in recognition of its commitment to providing a quality service and an efficient and enjoyable working environment. The ISO 9001 standard defines a format for a quality management system that has clear business objectives and a commitment to continuous improvement. Our quality system is independently audited by an internationally recognised United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) approved certification body.
We undertook 5 phases in order to gain accreditation. Phase 1 involved working with business consultants, producing process-mapping techniques regularly assessing our quality business processes and comparing them against industry 'best practice'. Phase 2 involved initiating any changes to achieve that standard, as well as drafting a Quality Policy Manual supporting outlined monitoring and measurement procedures.
During Phase 3 procedures were reviewed and agreed by our consultants, while Phase 4 involved ensuring their adherence, carrying out internal audits on our systems. In Phase 5, we applied for and were successfully registered to ISO 9001, proving GAAPS Actuarial's commitment to providing a high quality service to clients and candidates alike.
Our intention was and continues to be, to go beyond the industry standard, building on that base to reach excellence.
To this end, we value your feedback.
