Let’s meet some NSAI client organisations that also hold IQNET-recognised certifications:

Caroline Ashe Brady of Kore Retrofit Ltd [provider of bespoke insultation solutions for the building and construction industries]

As an NSAI client, Kore Retrofit Ltd has IQNET-recognised certification for the following schemes:

I.S. EN ISO 9001:2015 (Quality)

I.S. EN ISO 14001:2015 (Environment)

I.S. ISO 45001:2018 (Health and Safety)


Caroline Ashe Brady of Kore Retrofit Ltd explains why the organisation decided to go for certificate: “When you’re growing a business, there are three levers – people, processes and technology – and you need to move and tweak them all the time to make progress. We saw that certification to ISO standards could help us identify what we were getting right and what we needed to change.”

When a business works to put excellent processes in place, explains Caroline, it can radically improve the workplace culture. When things go wrong, for example, the team looks at how it can improve the process.

“Having great processes takes the personal out of it and makes things less emotive,” says Caroline. “It really supports the concept of psychological safety in an organisation. People feel safe to say what they need to say, and it changes the conversation to get to the root of issues, which could be a skills gap, a technology gap, a communications gap or another issue with a process”.

Conor Dowling of ProCloud [provider of innovative technology solutions]

As an NSAI client, ProCloud has IQNET-recognised certification for the following schemes:

I.S. EN ISO 9001:2015 (Quality)

I.S. EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017 (Information Security)

ISO/IEC 20000 – 1:2018 (Information Technology)


ProCloud’s clients include multiple local government bodies and large-scale enterprise industry around the world, who demand the highest possible information security. To show its commitment in this field, ProCloud decided to work to secure ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management Systems certification, along with ISO/IEC 20000 Information Technology Service Management. 

The process of securing ISO/IEC 27001 certification helped ProCloud reshape its strategic approach.  

Conor Dowling of ProCloud explains: “We applied for and achieved ISO/IEC 27001 for how we manage security for our own business, but it also extends to our clients. We look after their security, so that gives them confidence. There is a huge concern and consciousness regarding cybersecurity in today’s climate”.

As a result of certification, ProCloud’s improved processes have had real business impacts for the organisation.
