SAI Global (ex - Quality Assurance Services) is owned by Standards Australia. They are the ultimate authority for QA in Australia and are growing rapidly. They also take in Env, Safety, Risk, Training etc. They are the biggest registrar also. They are our regsitrar and we are happy with their performance (12 years). I also had them at an old company I worked for and I ousted them for another registrar. They used to want 'their way or the highway'. So we gave them the later.

They are also our registrar here because they are the biggest. Their 'five ticks' logo means something to the general public that other registrar's don't.

The auditor we have had have been very good and willing to see differnet points of view, but their booking systems need to get a quality system going. We have had lots of trouble with double bookings and other things and this week they sent an auditor out a month early and he turned up on my day off :rolleyes:
