Staying ahead of the game: the importance of ISO compliance for PNG businesses

by Charles Judd, Principal Director, Advisory Services

International corporations often have a stringent selection process when it comes to suppliers. Compliance with ISO standards is often a requirement for suppliers to be considered for business opportunities. In addition, international corporations in the resource industry often conduct detailed audits of various service areas when engaging with suppliers. This means that suppliers need to have their compliance in order so as to avoid any potential issues that could arise during the audit process.

Other topics covered include:

  • Why your next cyber chief might be completely virtual
  • US expand support for PNG in multifaceted partnership initiative
