This is the most difficult and time-consuming way, because it involves creating every document from scratch and figuring out all the steps on your own.

Pay a consultant

Sure, a consultant will hold your hand throughout the entire process, but they’ll also send you a big bill afterward. Still, if this is the route you want to take, make sure you use our ISO 9001 consultant checklist to evaluate the consultant you choose (expertise can vary widely among consultants).
