About us

Global Quality Certification GQC is a fully accredited, third party certification body providing certification of Quality Management Systems (ISO 9001), Environmental Management Systems (ISO 14001), Food Safety Management Systems (ISO 22000 and HACCP) and Safety Management Systems (OHSAS 18001).

The Company was established and now operates throughout United Kingdom, Asia, the Middle East, Western Europe and Africa. In addition to ISO certification, GQC also certifies a number of other management systems including QHSE and other industry specific and small business management system standards.

GQC was developed following a demand from the business community for a local, customer focused company to assist in third party certification. GQC   was developed and the Company commenced operations. The Company was formally accredited by the International Quality Management System (IQMS).
