“Assisting you to make the process work”
QCSE – CAS
We are very pleased to announce the merger of QCSE with CAS. This is very exciting news for both companies, our staff, and most importantly for you, our customers.
Both CAS and QCSE are focused on delivering the highest levels of customer service through accredited certification services. Our greatest asset has always been our people. With QCSE joining CAS, we have strengthened this even more, ensuring we continue to deliver high-quality certification services to you and the Australian community.
You can continue to rely on the same personal working relationship you have had in the past and the same quality of work, we will be able to provide more support and more products to help you navigate your compliance.
Will My Auditor Change?
All QCSE auditors will be maintained, so there is no plan for auditors to change. However, with the merger there will be more auditors available, located in more locations, with Compass having offices in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, meaning we can offer more flexibility as well as continuity.
Will The Cost Increase?
Both QCSE and Compass review their pricing from time to time, but there is no plan for price increases as a consequence of this merger, and any increase in the future will always be communicated to you with plenty of notice.
What Does This Mean To My Certification Status/Certificate Etc?
Both QCSE and Compass are JAS-ANZ accredited Conformity Assessment Bodies, so there will be no changes to your certification status or Certificate. At your next scheduled audit, we will talk to you about aligning with Compass’ accreditation.
Will The Auditing Process/Record Requirements Change?
With both QCSE and Compass being accredited by JAS-ANZ, this means we follow the same processes for auditing and assessing records – so the audit process will remain consistent with previous years.
Do I Have To Change All The Logos On My Website/Letterhead?
QCSE’s accreditation will be maintained for several years, so you will be able to keep using their logos for quite some time. We will talk to you about aligning with Compass’ accreditation and using Compass’ logos, but there will be plenty of time to plan for this.
Who Do I Talk To If I Have Questions?
You can talk to either Malcolm Clarke or Paul Lindsay, whose contact details appear below.
I Have Outstanding Non-Conformances; What Happens With Those Now?
The audit process remains exactly the same, so please continue to close out any nonconformances in accordance with instructions from your auditor.
Will I Be Audited To The Same ISO Standards?
Both QCSE and Compass are JAS-ANZ accredited, so this means we follow the same processes for auditing and audit the same Standards.
Will Our Audit Month Change?
Your audit schedule will not change, and there will be no changes to the timing of audits (or auditor) unless you request it.
Quality Control Services (Environmental)
Quality Control Services (Environmental) Pty Ltd (QCSE) commenced operations in South Australia in 1991. The initial business focus was the international oil industry operating in Australia. Since those early days, QCSE diversified its operations into the provision of International certification programs, commonly known as International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) Standards. We provide certification and assessment services to organisations’ management systems against the Standards for Quality, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety.
QCSE is accredited by JAS-ANZ, the regulatory body for ISO Programs in both Australia and New Zealand. Certification and Assessment Bodies (CAB), are accredited based upon compliance with the requirements of the applicable Standard using a five-level program. Level 1 is the lowest performance level, and Level 5 is the highest performance level. CABs strive to be recognised as a Level 5 organisation as this demonstrates their superior capability to deliver a consistently higher service, that meets all requirements of the ISO program. Generally, promotion to Level 5 takes a significant number of years in the business. QCSE is a Level 5 Certification and Assessment Body.
The firm is Australian owned, with the head office in Queensland, and provides services using agents in South Australia, Melbourne, Perth, and regional NSW. Through this office and agencies, QCSE services clients in all Australian States and Territories.
Our staff are engaged in management systems auditing, and our product is a report and certificate. Our clients come from a wide range of industries including engineering, construction, manufacturing, trades, professional services and not for profit organisations, to name a few. They range in size from small companies, to large, multi-national organisations.
Paul and the team at QCSE will ensure that the services you receive are of the highest standard, are commercially competitive and tailored to your exact specifications.
