What is the cost of ISO certification?

The cost of ISO certification can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size and complexity of the organisation, the scope of the certification, the standard or standards chosen (level of integration), the certification body chosen, and the location.

General costs include:

  1. Initial Certification (Stage 1 & 2): The cost of initial certification can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the factors mentioned above. Small organisations with simple processes may pay less, while larger organisations with complex operations generally more.
  2. Annual Surveillance Audits (Reviews): After initial certification, organisations are typically required to undergo annual surveillance audits to maintain their certification. The cost of these audits is usually lower than the initial certification audit but can still range from a few thousand dollars to several thousand dollars.
  3. Recertification: ISO certifications are typically valid for a 3-year period, after which organisations must undergo a recertification audit. The cost of recertification is typically 2/3 of initial certification costs.
  4. Consulting Services: Some organisations choose to hire consultants to help them prepare for ISO certification and assist with the ongoing maintenance. The cost of consulting services can vary widely but is typically an additional expense to consider.
  5. Training: Training employees on ISO requirements and processes is often necessary for successful certification. The cost of training can vary depending on the training provider and the number of employees being trained.

Overall, the cost of ISO certification can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars or more, depending on the specific circumstances of the organisation. It’s important for organisations to carefully consider these costs and research various providers.
