Registration and Application:

Register with Achilles and complete the application process. This involves submitting basic company information and detailing your business activities.

Preparation for the Audit:

Prepare for the Achilles audit by ensuring all your processes, health and safety protocols, and quality systems are in line with the required standards. Documentation should be thorough and up-to-date.

Internal Review:

Conduct an internal review or mock audit. This step helps in identifying any last-minute adjustments or improvements needed before the actual audit.

The Audit:

Participate in the Achilles audit. This will involve a detailed examination of your practices, procedures, and documentation by an Achilles auditor.

Post-Audit Actions:

Address any non-compliances or recommendations provided by the auditor. This is crucial for achieving and maintaining accreditation.
