CSA Group audits and certifies management systems, helping you harness the advantages of operating at peak safety and efficiency. Beyond demonstrating your company’s compliance with standards, our services can help increase trust in your brand and differentiate you from competitors.

Management Systems Services

Increasing global competition has given customers countless choices for the same products and services.  Without achieving repeatable quality, businesses may struggle to attract and retain consumers. In this environment, the performance of your management systems – key frameworks of policies, processes and procedures – is mission-critical. Whether in supply chain integrity, workplace safety, environmental impact, or regulatory compliance, management systems have a cumulative effect on your company’s operations and business success. CSA Group is your partner in auditing and certifying the policies, processes and procedures your business uses to stay competitive. We take a risk-based approach that can help you identify areas for improvement and enhance business performance. Our Plan, Do, Check, Act approach helps your business integrate new management initiatives, empowering you to continue to improve performance and mitigate risk.

Management System Audits & Certifications

Through a comprehensive on-site audit, CSA Group can ensure your organization’s Quality, Environmental or Occupational Health & Safety management systems comply with widely-accepted standards. Once compliance has been verified, we deliver a detailed report on our findings, and issue a CSA Group certification. CSA Group provides certifications in the following management systems. Each certification is valid for three years and verifies compliance with the relevant standards:

  • ISO 9001 (Quality Management): An ISO 9001 Certification of Conformity is issued after a successful Quality Management System (QMS) evaluation.
  • ISO 14001 (Environmental Management): An ISO 14001 Certification of Conformity is issued after a successful Environmental Management System (EMS) Certification audit has taken place.
  • OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health & Safety): An OHSAS 18001 Certification of Conformity is issued after a successful Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems (OHSMS) audit.

Why Work with CSA?

With locations in North America and around the world, CSA Group has an experienced team of auditors who can assess your business’s management systems in a systematic, collaborative and constructive way. Our experience with management systems standards goes back over four decades. We helped to develop the CSA Z299 series of Quality Assurance standards for the nuclear industry, which helped pave the way for ISO 9000 standards development. Today, we remain closely involved with management standards development. On behalf of Standards Council of Canada (SCC), we manage the global administrative, record-keeping and correspondence requirements of the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, which are among the most widely-used management system standards in the world, while our Canadian mirror committees vet these international standards to address market-specific requirements in Canada.
