Before you choose a consultant

As you begin the task of preparing your company for certification, are you asking any of these questions?

  • What steps do I take to get certified?
  • How long does it take?
  • How much does it cost?

If so, let me answer these questions for you here:


My name is Damon Anderson.

I started Compliancehelp Consulting In 2000 (originally called stratagem) to help people like you who are looking for genuine, honest, straight forward advice and help with ISO and AS/NZS certification.

Specifically, my team and I can help you with:

ISO 9001 (Quality)

ISO 14001 (Environment)

AS/NZS 4801 (Safety)

ISO 27001(Information Technology Security Management)

AES 5377 (Electronics Recycling)

ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management)

ISO 55001 (Asset Management)

ISO 17025 (Testing and Calibration Laboratories)

When I started Compliancehelp there wasn’t a lot of helpful information around.

Even today there’s a lot of confusing information, with people and companies giving their own opinion, which isn’t always correct.

If you do a quick search on the web you could end up more confused than when you started.

But my goal has always been to make it easy for companies like yours to not only get certified … but to easily maintain your certification once you get it. Like we did for Luke Galvin …

“It was much simpler than we first thought, that’s for sure” “Easy steps to follow. Certification went without a hitch” Luke Galvin, Galvin Engineering (Managing Director)

You see, I realized early on that if you could get certification easily … and if it wasn’t a burden on your business … your life would be much easier like it was for Fiona …

“We were surprised at how easy it was to achieve certification” “Very professional” “The simplicity of the process amazed us”. Fiona Price, Micro Connect (Director)

  • You could start winning more of the contracts you want — with bigger and better clients (clients who pay on time). Like Blair …

“By having Compliancehelp formalise our management system to meet ISO 9001, we were able to secure a government contract potentially worth $9,000,000″ Blair Cunningham, APB (Australian Portable Buildings), (General Manager, Brisbane)

  • You could meet your client’s requests for certification documents without stressing out, like Rachael …

“We have received our ISO Certification, thank you, and have our certificates proudly displayed in the office. Thanks again for making the process so painless! “It went really well. All due to how simple you made it for us.” Rachael Rose, General Manager, Troll Dental

  • You’d have more structure for your business which would make your life easier and your business more valuable …

“This is just a note to say how much difference has been made in our workshop since the introduction of the safety management system. And this is a notable difference to. The staff have become more aware of everything! The attitude toward helping management and their co-workers is much stronger. As a Factory Manger, I’m hearing about things that need attention before any problems or even worse occurs… I believe there is now a much better attitude and respect within our workplace.” Lance Firmin, Kiss Graphics (Workshop Manager)

My clients get outstanding results. They get certified quickly. They get certified the first time.

“I have conducted certification and surveillance audits on many of Compliancehelp’s clients. Certification has been achieved by all companies audited.

The systems that Complaincehelp design and implement are very effective and beneficial to the organisations and I would have no hesitation in recommending Compliancehelp to any of our clients”.

Oliver Evans, International Certifications (Managing Director for Australia)

Now, about your questions:

What steps do you take to get certified?

In simple terms there are only three steps:

1. Get your management system written to the requirements of the standard you need certification for

2. Make sure you are fully compliant with your management system procedures and processes

We can help you with steps 1 and 2. Then …

3. Invite the certification body of your choice to conduct the certification audit

We can recommend the very best certification bodies when you are ready for step 3.

How long does it take?

In my experience, you can be certified within 3 months of getting started, quicker if you’re in a hurry.

How much does it cost?

There are two parts to your investment:

1. Getting ready for certification (including getting your manual written and implemented) and

2. The auditor’s fee for conducting the audit and granting certification

The cost for both varies depending on the size, scope, and locations of your business.
