ISO 9001 – Quality
All organisations strive for quality in everything they do, from how they produce their product or service to how they manage their relationships with customers. Achieving this in the real world is challenging and takes commitment to a structured process and continual improvement.
ISO 14001 – Environment
Today the environmental performance of a company is a primary concern to its stakeholders. And it has become a significant factor in companies’ commercial success or failure. An Environmental Management System promotes commitment to a systematic approach and to a model of continuous improvement.
OHSAS 18001 – Health & Safety
Growing awareness of Occupational Health & Safety is reflected by waves of new and ever-changing legislation. If a company is to deal with this effectively and reap the benefits it can bring, it needs to have commitment to a systematic approach and continual improvement. The ‘gold standard’ worldwide is the Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSMS).
The National Highways Sector Schemes (NHSS) are bespoke quality management systems based on the ISO 9001 standard and are for organisations working on the UK road network.
Building Information Modelling
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the process by which all parties involved in the planning, design, construction and operation of the built environment can benefit from digital modelling.

What Our Clients Say
It was great to host Chris for the Reclassification Audit. He was professional throughout and we look forward to seeing him next year for our surveillance audit.
I have used Ocean Certification on several occasions and have found them to be very customer focused in the way they run their business. They are flexible and competitive and I have no hesitation in recommending them to my clients.
Chris A Griffin, Managing Director
We used Ocean Certification for our Quality Standard, initially because they gave real value for money. As time went on, however, and the relationship developed, we reaped the benefits of having a UKAS accredited system through Ocean Certification, ably assisted with the expertise, professionalism and dedication of their Auditors.
David is the third auditor I have had the pleasure of shadowing during the audit process at barratt Homes East Scotland. It is clear to me that consistency and professionalism are an ethos at Ocean Certification.
The audits were conducted in a professional and satisfactory manner; I would like to thank Ocean Certification for all the support provided during the audit.
Martin is very clear, informative, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with . We would recommend Martin to anyone.
Overall we are very pleased with the assessment and assessment process carried out by Ocean Certification. David ran both days very well and was informative throughout. We would recommend Ocean Certification to others.
It was a pleasure to work with David. This was the first time we had gone through a formal certification and David’s guidance was clear and helpful. His knowledge of the architectural section was most advantageous.
Great Service by Ocean, made this process easy and simple to follow. Minimal disruption to a busy office and site.
Chris was very diligent but fair and the site staff enjoyed his style of auditing and benefited from his knowledge.
Both onsite and offsite Ocean proved to be helpful and courteous; quite the opposite of what I expected the auditors to be like! Overall, we were delighted with Ocean, and will definitely be recommending them to others!
Over the last 3 years we’ve been developing our environmental management system, and through this process have seen a number of significant reductions of carbon savings across our work practices, resulting in cost savings to us.
It was a pleasure (strangely) to undergo the audit process with your very professional team.
Everything went well and was very professionally handled. Would not hesitate to recommend the service by Ocean or to use them again should the need arise.
Our auditor David Robinson was very calm and helpful. He explained the process with us extending to 18001 and 14001. We felt we had a very good relationship with him and look forward to working with Ocean in the future
