THE ONLY 10-POINT CHECK THAT ENSURES PRODUCT RELIABILITY AND CONSUMER CONFIDENCE IN A PRODUCT OR SERVICE.

In today’s stressful business market, it is not merely enough to assume having a quality product will meet industry or consumer requirement. Most customers expect more from their retailers nowadays with regards to how the product supplied affects global issues as well as ethical practices in the design, manufacture and supply chain.

Consumers are more concerned than ever before about:

  • How a product was designed and manufactured.
  • If it was processed in a sweat shop.
  • If it has been manufactured under duress by child labour forces.
  • If the environment has been considered throughout the supply chain when producing, packaging and supplying your product
  • If animal rights have been taken into account
  • Toxins and steriods in animals
  • The health conditions

These are just a few items that are guiding a consumer in a certain direction when making a choice of products to purchase and where to purchase them from.

Customer information protection has also become a huge issue due to identification theft and spam marketing, all affecting a potential client’s consideration when buying a product. Customers find comfort in knowing the POPI act and general data protection regulations have been adhered to.

About

ALL CHECK is the first initiative to go way beyond the usual traditional product quality mark. It indicates that product has been independently tested and meets manufacturing specification.

ALL CHECK is a holistic mark bearing, that can be used on your product stationary, packaging or signage to indicate that all 10 important points have been considered when producing or supplying a product or service.

The ALL CHECK logo will give your customer the confidence that your supply chain process has not only been quality checked but that your company has taken into consideration a range of ethical and moral principles which we all need to be aware of.

These include:

QUALITY

  • Quality Specification– Meeting design and manufacture specification for a product and service (ISO specification standard guide).
  • Quality Control– Ensuring consistency in the setup, manufacture and production of a product or quality control of a service provided to customers.
  • Quality Assurance– Ensuring there is overall quality in all aspects of the operation from sourcing suppliers to the final statement at point of sale.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

  • Safety– Product, service and site safety factors and conditions.
  • Health– Health issues regarding staff and customers- impacts, minimising and risk planning.

An innovation developed by Sancert as a quality service provider for ISO standards.

It became apparent that more needs to be done regarding how suppliers meet requirement. Customers want more. Companies need to demonstrate their commitment to ethical behaviour and what better way to do this than to have a mark logo that can be used on your products and packaging to indicate this to customers.

As an independent certification service provider doing certifications on various ISO management standards, Sancert have developed an overall audit process to assess companies according to the ALL CHECK requirement and give a rating report. This stringent audit will indicate a supplier’s level of commitment and compliance to all the aspect mentioned above.

At Sancert our philosophy is not to do a quality check on your product so we can rate it as meeting quality standards- no that is your responsibility- what we would need to see is how you have managed your quality checks to certain specifications (be it an ISO requirement or your own specification) and how you ensure completeness and consistency in your product.

It is simply not good enough for a mark bearing logo provider to check a sample product once every three months in order for you to advertise that a product is quality checked, we feel that it is more important to assess your management process in order to maintain a quality product at all times.

Mark Sheme

The ISO range of management systems each function individually, some are designed for third party certification and others are designed as a guide on how to manage a system effectively.

ALL CHECK encompasses completeness collectively as one mark scheme to show a client’s commitment and dedication to offering the best possible service and product as well as ensuring company sustainability through effective management.


Why Quality

Quality of products and services are key to any operation. If your products and services are not up to standard consistently, you will find it hard to remain in business in today’s competitive markets. A well-managed quality system not only ensures continual sales, but reduces internal failure which in most cases is direct profit loss. A well-managed operation allows for preferential pricing and thus improved clientele relationship.

Why Health and Safety

Safety in your business is imperative, especially when you have clients on your property. Employee and customer health is of utmost importance. By having a well-managed health and safety system you not only ensure suitable controls are in place, but also ensure you meet legal requirement.

Why Environmental

Knowing that a product or service has been supplied in a manner where the environment has not been adversely affected is a great topic in today’s marketplace. Customers want to know that the environment has not been damaged during a production process or that the packaging used has the potential to be reused or recycled. By enforcing strict environmental controls through your company, your suppliers will follow suit- thus the overall process will have a large impact on reducing environmental risk.

Why Social Accountability

It is an easy action to turn a blind eye on where a product has been manufactured, how an animal has been treated in the culling and slaughtering process or how steroids might be used to meet weight aspects. But, in all reality if you are selling a product, you are liable to ensure human rights, ethics and morals are part of your business management process. The way you treat your staff allows for good business sustainability and investment. Clients want to know that a product has been developed and supplied humanly and companies need to have management systems in place to allow for good control and transparency in this regard.

Why Energy Management

In today’s world, energy resources are being eradicated at a high rate. Not many operations are considering re-usable energy or measuring their energy demand or how they can reduce this. Over and above the minimisation of energy use there is also a good cost saving in a well-managed energy plan.

Why Information Security

In today’s digital information age it is imperative that a company has good management systems to protect their staff and customers digital information as best as possible. A company needs a management system to ensure they have adequate security in place for electronically stored data as well as site security.


If you have considered all the above and either developed a management system to address all the above issues or alternatively developed ISO management systems for each, we are able to assess your business to our stringent checks. If your score meets the required standard level, the All CHECK logo may be used on your marketing, products, packaging and sites. This will indicate that you have been independently assessed against the above and that your company offers a high standard of compliance.

It should be noted that this mark does not replace or indicate that a product meets a certain quality requirement, it only indicates that your total management process has been developed around the above requirements.

This gives the consumer a very comfortable feeling knowing that you as a company have considered all the aspects when supplying your product into the marketplace under legal and ethical controlled conditions.

Terms and conditions apply for the use of the ALL CHECK logo but this is discussed once a client has embarked on this great journey.
