Brian's thoughts on certification: "Implementing a certified ISO 9001 or product certification system can result in significant benefits from aspects such as: tighter control on internal processes where risk is evident, reduction in frequency of poor quality outputs and meaningful monitoring of quality performance. These benefits often lead to higher customer satisfaction and even lower cost of product which keeps everyone happy."

"I highly recommend Brian Latta; he has an excellent level of understanding of ISO 9001 and has the ability to incorporate the standard into a practical quality management system."
"Thanks for the spirit in which this audit was conducted and we look forward to a long relationship"​
​"I would like to thank you for all your efforts in getting this put through so promptly for the company it has been an absolute breeze working with yourself throughout the entire process.’"
