CK Beckett successfully undergo their ISO 9001, 14001 & 45001 2nd year surveillance audit with support from Compliant.


Founded in 1984, Barnsley based CK Beckett was originally launched as a waste management business, due to continual growth, they have now moved into the removal and disposal of power transformers. 

Why did CK Beckett initially decide to invest in ISO 9001, 14001 & 45001?

With the company originally gaining UKAS accredited ISO 9001, 14001 & 45001 in 2021, we chatted with Office Manager, Casey Clarke, on why the company had opted for the standards.

“As a business that operates with many customers in critical infrastructure sectors such as power stations, it was essential for us to demonstrate credibility and a commitment to quality, environmental standards and health and safety.

We often submit tender documentation and were frequently asked if we were ISO certified therefore it seemed a route which we should definitely explore.”

The Process

Two years since their original certification, the business has adopted the new processes and are reaping the benefits of the certification, Casey continued, “Being ISO certified not only gives us a competitor advantage but it has also improved our internal processes hugely.  The Compliant team help us to maintain the required paperwork and keep on top of everything so when the yearly audits approach, we know we have nothing to worry about.

The time savings have also been a benefit to us as now completing qualification questionnaires only takes a fraction of the time they used to.  When customers and suppliers know we have the ISO standards, they’re aware we are being audited by a 3rd party UKAS accredited certification body so know we can be relied upon for our quality, continual improvement and first-class customer service.

Danielle and Ruth have kept us to date with all the paperwork requirements leading up to the audits and are there if we ask any questions, it’s certainly been a smooth process.”

The Outcome

Following the successful 2nd year surveillance audit, the company were delighted with the outcome.

Casey finished by saying, ‘Put simply, we love working with the Compliant team, the process flows exactly as it should and we’re confident that when the audits come around, we have everything in place with no need to panic.

Having the ISO certifications and the ongoing support from Compliant has ensured all of our staff work to the highest standards, something we can then pass on to our clients.”

Compliant’s Client Support Manager, Ruth Hindson commented, “Casey and the CK Beckett team have been a delight to work with, they have embraced the three standards and it’s brilliant to see the benefits they have brough to the business.

We look forward to working with them throughout the year up to their recertification in 2024.”
