Certification Differently

Home » About Us » Certification Differently

At Southpac Certifications, we believe in doing things differently. We know businesses are tired of the same old tick and flick approach, which is why we have built our reputation around Certification Differently – taking a fresh approach to certification.

We want the organisations we work with – both big and small – to see the benefits and success that ISO Certification can facilitate. We truly believe that effective management systems are a key enabler of that success and working with the right certification body can drive material improvements in system performance, resilience and reliability.

More than a tick

What is 
Certification Differently?

Our goal at every point of contact is to offer a fresh perspective and add real value to see our client’s business grow and succeed. Auditing for us is not just an exercise to ‘tick the boxes’ every year, but an opportunity to get fresh eyes on the system and see how we can make a difference to an organisation’s processes.

An organisation that is audited by Southpac Certifications will be assigned a dedicated Lead Auditor who is committed to both assurance and improvement. They will work with all personnel as a team to provide assurance that the systems are not just compliant but are actually implemented and working to improve the business.


What to expect

  • Auditors with personality
  • A common-sense business approach
  • Improvement and a value-adding focus
  • Collaboration in improving system resilience and reliability
  • Flexibility and an understanding of your needs

What not to expect

  • A tick and flick approach
  • Focus on irrelevant aspects of standards
  • Non-conformances raised on wording discrepancies and compliance alone
  • Use of complicated jargon and terminology
  • Incompetence and unprofessionalism

What our Clients say about us…

“The lead auditors have been exemplary, knowledgeable in construction, reasonable in their findings and professional in their interactions, whether that is with the Executive team or site workers. In my experience Southpac has made the audit process easy and less painful than other companies I’ve worked with and we have a great working relationship.”

Michelle Rooney, HSE Manager, McNab

“Thanks very much Jeremy and Amy (from Southpac). The process was streamlined and straightforward. Very happy with the outcome.”

James Gleeson, Director, Marvel Engineers

“The professionalism of Southpac’s auditing team is to be commended. From the first minute of our meeting, we felt at ease and confident that the knowledge of Southpac’s team would give us our best chance of gaining certification.”

“The initial meeting and introduction to the team was fantastic. It gave us a great insight as to what Southpac do and how they are going to help us achieve our certifications. Southpac’s team certainly take the intimidation out of ISO certification. We as a business felt guided through the whole process and were given constructive feedback and tips along the way.”

“Audits add value. The auditors are experienced and understand their standards and how they apply to the business being audited. Post audit, there is always follow-up support and guidance through the close-out phase. Southpac training is second to none.”
