QG Business Solutions are a Business Consultancy based in Carlisle, Cumbria, who have become a leading player in alternative procurement standards to ISO 9000, ISO 14000, OHSS 18000 and ISO 27000 across the North of England and Southern Scotland. Hundreds of businesses have won tenders through public and private sector procurement processes by meeting the QG Standards.

QG Management Standards can take a business with no documented management system to full ISO certification utilising out suitably qualified consultants. However, what makes QG Management Standards stand out from other certifications is that you can opt for a 2 stage approach to achieving an ISO standard. The QG Management Standard sits between no system and ISO depending on the complexity of your business. Recognised by many public and private organisations, the QG Standard has helped hundreds of businesses win work through the tendering process. Once you have gained the standard, you can opt to continue onto full ISO certification, or like many of our clients stick with annual assessment against the QG standard. Indeed there are a number of businesses that gained QG Quality Management Standard certification in 1994 who continue to operate to the QG Standard without the need to attain ISO 9000.
