With external influences in the UK’s economic and political environment causing some nervousness and after a cautious trading period at the start to the year, Choice saw much-improved results in new orders and revenues to finish 2018 strongly.
Choice has boosted its credentials as a preferred supplier to the financial sector by gaining registered status within the Financial Services Qualification System (FSQS) Stage 2 as part of its compliance requirement for customer Santander. FSQS is designed to standardise and manage requests for compliance and assurance data in a one-for-all submission process which serves the major financial services organisations that have adopted the system.
Are you a Responsible Person?
The UK Fire Industry Association, to which Choice belongs, has produced a 5-minute video explaining the identity and the role of the Responsible Person – deemed to be accountable for fire safety within organisations according to fire safety law – along with the benefits of using Third-Party Certification to ensure compliance.
Choice among the first to acquire compulsory new QA standard
Choice has become one of the first tranche of UK fire and security businesses to successfully transition to the award of ISO 9001:2015 quality assurance status from that of ISO 9001:2008. This compulsory requirement covers both the company’s NSI Security Gold Scheme and NSI Fire Gold Scheme certifications. It was confirmed following Choice’s most recent NSI Surveillance Audit, achieved well ahead of the 14th September 2018 deadline.
