NSI Associate Consultancy Programme

The NSI Associate Consultancy Programme (ACP)

This is a referral facility for businesses seeking help with Certification and business development from consultancies.

To ensure the highest levels of integrity and impartiality, NSI does not provide consulting services, neither does it have any financial or other arrangement with any consultancy.


NSI’s independence and impartiality is highly valued. Being accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to BS EN ISO/IEC 17021 and BS EN ISO/IEC 17065, NSI does not provide assistance to businesses with the implementation of management standards or provide any form of business consultancy, although we do provide generic guidance.

We do recognise businesses sometimes have a need for consultancy advice, but we do not recommend or express a preference for any individual consultancy, whether or not registered in the NSI Associate Consultancy Programme.

The NSI ACP list below provides details of the standards and NSI approval schemes supported. Consultancies are listed alphabetically, with no implied preference on the part of NSI.

If you need help selecting your consultancy, try our Guide to Choosing a Consultancy

  • Consultants working for consultancies are screened to BS 7858.
  • NSI requires all NSI Associate Consultants to complete a declaration of interests form annually to ensure there is no risk to impartiality of NSI or the Associate Consultancy.
