The ISSA Members Quality Standard was devised to set the minimum standard bench-mark for the ship supply industry that ISSA Members should strive to achieve. You can download the full Standard.
For all members of National Associations, the elected representative within the country will receive from the ISSA Quality Executive and pass out to all their members, the audit control document for action directly by each individual member. This, when completed, will be passed by e-mail directly from the individual member to the ISSA Quality Executive for assessment using the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all Associate Members the ISSA Quality Executive will send directly to each member the audit control document for action by the individual member. Again when this is completed it should be sent directly to the ISSA Quality Executive for assessment using the e-mail email@example.com.
For all members who are successful on this assessment, they will receive an ISSA Quality certificate, individually numbered, valid for five years, subject to an annual review. In addition the company will be identified in the ISSA Register and on the ISSA website with a quality logo against their name indicating that they meet the requirements of the ISSA Quality Standard.
The charge for this assessment is £250 for companies without ISO and £125 for companies with ISO and includes the ISSA Quality Certificate. The annual on-going assessment audit is £150 which includes the endorsement of the Certificate. Members already qualified to ISO 9001:2008 will automatically receive the ISSA Quality Certificate endorsement for an annual charge of £100.
