Often, certification to international standards is a prerequisite for doing business. It can improve your credibility with existing and potential clients, help enhance your business reputation and grow your client base and/or your supply chain.

What benefits will members receive?
LRQA's Registered Consultant status logo
All fully registered members of the Consultant Network have the option to receive a logo featuring a unique identifier number for use on their letterhead, website and other marketing collateral. LRQA is not permitted by our regulators to recommend the services of any specific consultant, and membership does not imply that LRQA represents, recommends or certify these consultants in anyway.
However, this logo enables organisations looking for a consultant to determine whether they have the right skills and knowledge to successfully implement and support them with their international management system standards.
Referral of contact details
Depending on specialism, sector experience and location, your consultancy's contact details are passed to organisations looking for help and support with their management system.
