Custom Solar achieve ISO-14001Custom Solar has achieved the internationally recognised ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, establishing it as one of the leaders in its field.  This independent assessment was conducted by the leading Certification Body, the British Assessment Bureau and demonstrates our commitment to customer service and quality in delivery.


Custom Solar has now earned the right to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification marks to demonstrate its conformance to the standards.

ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do and that they have a quality management system in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.

ISO 14001:2004 was first introduced in 1996 as a British Standard and requires organisations to have an environmental policy and action plan to manage their impact on their environment. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.

The benefits of registration to the ISO standards include:-

  • Streamlining an organisation’s procedures.
  • Bringing consistency to an organisation’s service delivery.
  • Reducing cost and rework.
  • Improving an organisation’s management practices.
  • Enhanced status.
  • Competitive advantage.


“We are very proud to have achieved ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 certification as it displays to our customers our commitment and  focus on quality and the environment. Not many customers get to see their suppliers’ ‘back-office’ activities. This recognition demonstrates we can provide a quality solution from quotation to delivery and practice what we preach in regards to environmental impact”

Managing Director, Matthew Brailsford


The British Assessment Bureau:

Their reputation for making organisations stand out was established in 1969, starting as a specialist in certification scheme management. In 1997, the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry approved the use of the word ‘British’ in our new corporate title in recognition of our pre-eminent status.  Today, they certify organisations to recognised standards like ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management) and provide associated training. Outside of ISO standards, they design and manage bespoke assessment schemes. Such schemes are based on the establishment of standards, which can be developed to be recognised company-wide, industry-wide, nationally or internationally.
