I think PSB is a good place to look for certification locally though I'm not sure they have exactly what you need.

Honestly, getting ISO Certification is not an easy task. It requires a lot of documentation and procedures.

Types of ISO Certification:

ISO has various standard certification and it can be applicable for any organization as well as individual service providers. Here is the type of ISO Certification.

* ISO 9001 - Quality Management System[/list]
* ISO 14001 - Environmental Management System[/list]
* ISO 22000 - Food Safety Management System[/list]
* ISO 20000 - IT Service Management System[/list]
* ISO 27001 - Information Security Management System[/list]
* ISO 50001 - Energy Management System[/list]

Most ISO Standards are specific to the products and Services. However, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are generic managment system standards that can be applied to any organization.

How to Get ISO Certification:

As i mentioned above getting ISO Certification for your business is risky. Although it is not a requirement for any of the international standards, some organizations prefer to use an ISO Accredited Certification body or ISO Consultants to help them implement international standards, and your organization may want to do the same.

Reference : ISO Certification. Check out this link, they are located in UAE, but they are able to provide certification services all over the world.

Hope it helps, Thanks :)
