ISO certification in the professional & technical activities sector

The Professional & Technical Activities sector specialise in performing activities for others. An example of some businesses who operate within this sector are: Advertising, marketing research, veterinary services, photography and scientific research. Due to the nature of these activities, training and expertise is widely required. As a result, certifications and accreditations are vital for companies within this sector, to demonstrate they are competent.

Why do companies operating in the professional & technical activities sector need ISO Certification?

Companies who operate within the Professional & Technical Activities sector will often perform activities for others across a range of different sectors. In addition, it is well known that some work can be carried out in households too. Along with this, extensive research and development, and innovation is carried out. For this to be effective, a sustainable Management System must be implemented. Therefore,  ISO certification is useful to gain so that Risks, Legislation and Objectives are met. On top of this, gaining ISO certification will attract more tenders, customers and stakeholders, as your company is demonstrating a Management System in accordance with International Standards.

Your routes to achieving ISO certification in the professional & technical activities sector

Certification supported by consultancy

This package is perfect if you are determined to gain your ISO certification on the first attempt. You will get full access to the Titan System, alongside support with our consultants including on-site visits and virtual meetings.


Self-managed ISO certification

This package is for clients who have adequate resources but want to be guided on achieving ISO certification. Full accessibility of the Titan System, with appropriate templates and training will be available. On hand virtual support is accessible.


It is not a requirement for professional & technical activities companies to be ISO certified. Despite this, the end user of the product or service may require you to be certified. Therefore, for the sake of tenders, it can be best practice to at least be ISO 9001 certified.

As above, ISO 9001 certification is the most popular standard within Professional, Scientific & Technical Activities companies. This is the quality management standard which ensures a solidified framework for effectiveness of products. Additionally, ISO 27001, the Information Security standard can also be applied to this sector. This can provide your company with the ideal framework to set the control measures and objectives needed when introducing a new or improved ISMS. Finally, ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 can also be applied, however these tend to be industry specific.

We have developed two pathways for ISO certification. Internally managed and supported by consultancy. This means that you can achieve certification in whichever way suits your company and current Management System. Our consultants have extensive experience in the ISO world and will be there to support you through the ISO journey. All requirements of the ISO standard will be in place and thoroughly checked prior to your external assessment.

The Cost of consultancy is very much dependent on the size and scope of your company. We will always offer a free visit to assess your company’s requirements and provide a no obligation quote based on this initial assessment together with an estimated completion date.

If we implement The Titan System, we will set up a fixed monthly subscription fee on a flexible rolling contract. Prices for both are available on request here.
