Deepesh Abhyankar,  Owner at Amco Engineering

My attitude to ISO 9001 quality systems has completely changed as a result of my experience with APB CONSULTANT. I now consider an ISO 9001 quality system as almost an essential system for today’s business environment. 

My previous experience with quality systems and consultants had left me with a negative impression – the systems were cumbersome or rigid; the consultants seemed to concentrate on low-level processes, and didn’t seem to understand the business demands of the ‘real world’. Three years as a manager operating with the systems that Pretesh Biswas implemented and maintained completely changed my opinion. The focus is put firmly on how the business works and what it wants to do.
Our systems were made to suit and support our business operations, instead of the other way around. They worked extremely well for us, giving us strong management control yet with minimal maintenance, overhead and paperwork. The discipline and clarity our ISO 9001 system and processes provided meant we could implement new or changed services quickly; management information and control was easily maintained, even during rapid turnover of personnel.
Pretesh Biswas revised and redesigned our systems through several reorganizations and changes to scope and business objectives. His attitude is practical and solution-focused, combined with a commitment to continuous improvement and to getting the job done.
Getting and maintaining ISO certification involved no extra work, and enabled us to continue to provide an extremely high level of service to our customers, in an environment of almost continual change. APB
CONSULTANT is the first company I’d call for help to implement or improve an ISO 9001 system

Bharat P Akkimi, MR & Quality Manager, Kalyani forge Limited

Pretesh has a good exposure to QMS and EOHS requirements. He has taken leadership in effective implementation of ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 at Kalyani Forge Limited.

Laxmikant Thipse, CEO, GameCloud Technologies Pvt Ltd

Pretesh is very particular about maintaining the quality standards as per ISO requirements. He has very good knowledge about ISO requirements and he has always ensured that the requirements are fulfilled with minimum documentation.

Vikas Dassani, Partner, Dassani Industries

Excellent, more than excellent. We were very pleased with the way Pretesh Biswas worked with us, they were fantastic. We are very pleased with every aspect of the work done by APB Consultant. For people who do not work in our area of business it was surprising how quickly and thoroughly Pretesh Biswas understood our operational particularities.

We had no idea what to expect, the outcome was excellent as was the communication and support provided by APB Consultant throughout the process.

Were there any areas where APB Consultant  could improve their services?

“What could be better than the best?”

If you are looking to achieve ISO 9001 certification, we thoroughly recommend APB Consultant.

    Hello. I am looking for a integrated ISO 9001:2015 – ISO 14001:2015 GAP Analysis. I also am looking for an integrated ISO 9001:2015 – ISO 14001;2015 manual. Do we really need a manual to make it easier, or is it easier to have a document matrix so that the auditor may be able to see all the documents in place that manage the QMS.

    Your blog is a Must
    Because has content and a lot of information
    that support us on daily work

    I do a massive request to keep this travel

    Thencs 💪💪

  23. My advice is to keep on writing and continue in this, hope you will find good value with this . I suggest you to guide the companies on this front. definitely this will provide you the good business. Really you made it very easy to understand by new comer too. Please continue with this.

  24. You have a very valuable blog here. I’ve found it very helpful for my own understanding of ISO9001:2015 and other quality tools. If I could make two recommendations. . . add advertisements so that you can at least make a small profit . . . and change the website template so that the content is displayed in a wider format instead of being so narrow (though perhaps this is only my personal experience). You give a large amount of value here for free. I think this site could be very popular if it were updated visually to draw more people in.

  25. Don’t stop, Now that Elsmar Cove is no more-I am at a loss on where my ‘go to’ SME. You have explained 2015 in great detail. Its been very helpful.

  26. I was struggling understanding the requirements for the new ISO 9001:2015 and as i came across your blog, it clears up the blockage and hindrances in my mind. Now i can truely understand what each requirement mean. I’d suggest you to keep on writing and build your business. Its a good business. Just do a bit of marketing with some few clients and onces they are satisfied, they will continue recommend you to other clients. What you are doing now is a need for the industry out there. Do some bits of marketing and your business will grow. Its a good businessss.

    My advice is to keep on writing and continue this business. Its a good one.

  27. I get good information for our Internal Audits from your blog. Please keep writing it. You really know your stuff.

  28. Dear Pritesh,
    I have read your blog . it is very helpfull for new standards. explaining the concepts is really very good.
    pl keep writing as it will help to many to understand standards.

  29. Dear Pritesh

    I found your blog very useful in assisting me in understanding the new ISO9001:2015 a little better.

    Please would you explain to me if you agree with the statement I have attached.

    “The organization should make clear what their products and services are. For example, for a personal computer maker their product is the computer and this will be the object of the design and development. On the other hand, an organization which assembles a computer unit by the offer from the computer maker, the object of the design and development for this organization would be the assembling method of the unit. Because what this organization is providing to the customer is “appropriately assembled” unit. When the organization determines the object of the design and development, it is important to consider what values their customers are acquiring through the products and services.”

    My uncertainty is the fact that organizations not producing anything besides offering a service has to now implement a process of design and development.

    Another example , if I own a automobile service centre replacing brake pads, I buy the pads from a dealer and install them. Do I have to now develop a process in the context of “design and development” on how I install the brake pad.

    Please would you assist me as we have varying point of views.

    Your assistance is greatly appreciated.


  30. The blog is very useful. Please continue to write on various new tools and techniques including TOC, Green manufacturing ,Data analysis and others

  31. Dear Pretesh,
    You are so productive!
    I advise you to keep on writing.
    Especially on Commissioning and Handover issues. Because it is almost always QA people who are requested to handle commissioning and handover works at construction sites.

  32. Dear Pretesh,

  33. Dear Pritesh,
    Please continue writing this blog. Your blog is very good. I work in quality field and been immensely benefited by your blog. Hope you continue with blog, My personal request would be to write on ISO 20000 standard in detailed manner as you have written for ISO 9001.
    Thank you very much for all the help I got from your blog.

  34. I just stumbled over you blog as I was looking for examples of Quality Policies compliant with the ISO9001:2015 standard, and I liked your descriptions of the 2015 version.

    The question of whether to stop or continue is probably more related to your capacity and as the previous comment states your employers opinion.

    All the best – if you continue, I would love to see a few actual examples of how organizations have addressed the requirements in particular organizations in the service or health industry.

    All the best.
