Watts’ QMS Certification: ISO 9001:2000


Watts has demonstrated its commitment to continually improve the range and quality of the services it provides.

Wider third party ISO 9001:2000 QMS (quality management system) certification has now been ratified by LRQA (Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance).


The International Organisation for Standardisations (ISO) is a powerful non-governmental organisation that has the ability to set national standards for quality management systems that often become law, such as the ISO 9001.


Requirements within ISO 9001 include:

  • a set of procedures that cover all key processes in the business;
  • monitoring processes to ensure they are effective;
  • keeping adequate records;
  • checking output for defects, with appropriate and corrective action where necessary;
  • regularly reviewing individual processes and the quality system itself for effectiveness; and
  • facilitating continual improvement


Watts’ certificate now embraces a broader scope/range of services and also includes those of our specialist environmental consultants.


All eight of our UK offices are covered by the certification.


What this means for Watts’ clients


Watts’ quality management system is used to

  • ensure that all of our clients instructions are carried out to a consistently high standard in accordance with their individual target time, cost and quality objectives; 
  • disseminate best practice throughout the group, allowing staff to become more effective and efficient and;
  • ensures our reputation is maintained and enhanced as Watts continues to grow and develop.


As our existing clients needs change and expectations grow, Watts continues to improve and provide service excellence that not only meets, but exceeds, our clients changing requirements.


Potential new clients have the reassurance that we operate in an effective and efficient manner, delivering high quality, repeatable services with a commitment to continually improving the level and scope of service offered.


Compliance with management system requirements is mandatory for all staff, regardless of which office is delivering the service.
