On 1 May 2013, DNV Business Assurance introduced reduced rates for small businesses in the oil and gas sector. The rates are relevant to businesses which require certification for ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 or any combination of these standards. They enable smaller organisations to benefit from UKAS accredited certification at a competitive price.
For businesses supplying the oil and gas industry, investing in accredited certification with DNV Business Assurance is a demonstration of best practice. Commercial director Jonathon Dillon says, "This is one of a number of key measures that DNV has taken to support small businesses in these challenging market conditions. DNV’s brand and reputation in the oil and gas sector is well known and we wanted to ensure that it was also possible for smaller companies to benefit from our services."
In addition to the introductory rates, businesses will have the opportunity to partner with an industry expert. Our oil and gas auditors have an average of 20 years of experience.This together with our Risk-based Certification™ approach offers a service tailored to business needs.
Patrick Darmody, principal lead auditor at DNV Business Assurance, says, "DNV’s Risk-based Certification™ approach to establishing focus areas in order to facilitate continual improvement measures in the areas of business risks is a valued extension of our commitment to support business performance improvement and potentially gain a competitive edge for our customers."
For those in need of a transfer, DNV Business Assurance offers a quick and easy transfer process. In most cases, we can pick up the existing audit schedule and issue a certificate. Small business rates are applicable only to businesses with up to 30 staff operating from a single site. Exclusions may apply.
