Absolutely a great pleasure to work with Koh. His company offer complete customised ISO systems for your company. Not "copy pasted" templates.

Highly recommend Koh to anyone looking for flexible and fast ISO certification. We will definitely be using his service again!
Dato’ Jacky Lee Director of JJ Mining Resources Sdn Bhd
Overall, I am very pleased working with Mr. Koh for getting my company ISO 9001 certified. My friend recommended him to me. Although he is young, but he is obviously very knowledgeable and his ability to develop the necessary documentation and demonstrate its professionalism assisting us to pass the audit the first time. We’re grateful for his flexibility in his consultation programme keeping the tedious paperwork and documentation to minimum level. One thing I am most happy about is my team did not complain about having more paperwork.
Ken EeDirector of Ee Osteocare & Acupunture Sdn Bhd
We have just completed our external audit with Certification Body and we have passed with no nonconformity's identified. The consultant work diligently to ensure that we have everything we need for our audit and the audit really has transformed from being a very stressful and daunting experience to hassle-free and easy process. Thank you Koh for the help.
Ms. Goh CEO of Hong Long International Group Sdn Bhd
Initially we get ISO certificate just for the sake of meeting customer requirements, apart from that, we didn’t really expect any other benefit out of this project. We didn’t really believe when we were told about how the ISO standard can help improving product quality or company processes. Everything changed after the implementation. We experience less product quality issues and reduced customer complaints. Now we do believe ISO isn’t just a piece of certification. Great job!
Chin YeeDirector of Joy & Wellness Sdn Bhd
The training provided was very thorough and the content was relevant to our industry. Can feel that the trainer did preparation and research about our industry before the training to give more training examples.

The Top 5 Must-Knows Before Applying GMP (Food) Certification

How can GMP practices in the food industry ensure the safety and quality of our products?
  • Strict hygiene and sanitation practices reduce the risk of contamination and foodborne illnesses.
  • Proper documentation ensures traceability of ingredients and processes, facilitating timely recalls if necessary.
  • Employee training in GMP principles ensures adherence to best practices, leading to consistent product quality.

Compliance with GMP regulations builds consumer trust and confidence in your products, contributing to your brand’s reputation and long-term success in the competitive food market.

What is the difference between GMP and HACCP?

GMP and HACCP are both essential food safety systems, but they serve different purposes. GMP focuses on overall manufacturing practices, ensuring quality, safety, and consistency in the food industry. It covers various aspects such as facility cleanliness, employee hygiene, and documentation.

On the other hand, HACCP is a systematic approach that targets critical control points in the production process to identify, assess, and control hazards related to food safety. It specifically addresses potential risks to prevent food safety issues.

GMP serves as a prerequisite for HACCP, and while GMP establishes essential manufacturing practices, HACCP represents a more advanced and comprehensive food safety program

How does your GMP consultant team assist food companies like ours in implementing GMP?

Our comprehensive GMP implementation program includes:

  • Factory Review – to establish a GMP-compliant facility layout.
  • Development of Food Safety Management System based on GMP guidelines – including SOPs and best practices.
  • GMP Training – to train the operational team on GMP requirements
  • GMP Internal Audits – conduct an internal assessment to evaluate GMP compliance.
  • GMP Certification Audit – provide support until successful completion of GMP certification

Our step-by-step approach ensures your food company is well-prepared and successfully implements GMP practices, promoting safety, quality, and regulatory compliance in your operations.

What specific topics and modules does your GMP training cover to equip our workforce with the necessary skills and knowledge for compliance?

Our GMP training includes an introduction to GMP principles, personal hygiene, facility and equipment maintenance, raw material handling, SOP development, documentation, quality control, contamination control, and personnel training.

Through the GMP training, we ensure that your team is well-prepared to uphold GMP standards, fostering a culture of food safety and quality within your organization.

How will obtaining GMP certification with your guidance elevate our brand reputation and instill confidence in our consumers?
