We are very pleased that Bill has also joined as a Partner in August 2018. Bill was employed with NSI as a full time auditor for NSI Gold Schemes including Security Systems, Fire Alarms, Alarm Receiving Centres, Portable Extinguisher Maintenance and Emergency Lighting.
All our Partners and our other associates have a wide range of experience in many industries and work with clients who themselves operate nationally and internationally.
All of our partners and associates are fully competent and experienced in their field.
They are also experienced in the implementation of Management Systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001/ISO45100) and are all qualified as lead auditors. This experience is primarily, but not exclusively in the Security, Fire and H&S sectors.

A sample of our many testimonials:
SSAIB first engaged John in 1999 to assist in the development of the procedures required to achieve UKAS Accreditation as a Certification Body. Since gaining initial accreditation in 2000, John has continued to work with the SSAIB to maintain and extend our scope of accreditation both within the security systems, Manned Services & Fire Industries including the development of our Environmental and H&S Management Systems Schemes. John has been joined by Jackie Plass and in recent years Ruth Slade and Bill Baillie. He and his team continue to provide support on a range of issues. Over the years we have worked together, John has demonstrated his knowledge and experience and has always acted in a professional manner. His extended team has broadened the range of knowledge and experience he is able to offer.
Abel have worked with JAS for over 15 years as consultants, dealing with our Certification and third party accreditation for NSI Gold including ISO 9001 and Health and Safety including Achilles Verify Accreditation. During this time John has been knowledgeable, efficient, honest and professional in our working relationship. I can recommend that it has been a pleasure working with him and he will be very proficient in providing you with your business needs.
We have found the service from JAS Associates to be highly professional and knowledgeable. The consultants we deal with are very approachable, always respond to any queries/questions quickly and easy to work with.
JAS Associates have provided Security by Design with comprehensive quality management and health and safety consultancy services since 1999, during which time our business has grown and changed a great deal. JAS has been able to tailor its services to meet our needs at all times. Our relationship started when JAS assisted us in gaining ISO 9000 accreditation and put in place a quality management system which was appropriate to our business and has proved to be a valuable tool for our long-term growth. Over the years, we have also successfully achieved many other quality standards and accreditations with the assistance of John and his team. With JAS assisting our quality management is was an easy decision to extend our relationship into the health and safety sector. JAS provide us with a total health and safety service including consultancy, risk assessment, training and advice.
In the years since Coventry Cyrenians decided that it needed to develop an accredited quality management system, Jackie Plass from JAS Associates has guided us through the design, recording and monitoring of that system. She was instrumental in our successful application for the ISO 9001 quality mark and helped us negotiate our path through subsequent annual assessments. For as long as we maintain our commitment to the ISO quality mark we will continue to use Jackie to advise us.
We have worked with John from JAS Associates for several years now and the great thing about that is that he has real time experience in working Quality, BS8418, ARC/RVRC & H&S and can keep us aware and on top of these elements that are so important to our operations now and in the future.
I can’t thank John Slade, Steve Brazier and all the other staff at JAS Associates enough for all the excellent work they did for me and my Company. It was a seemingly never ending adventure. We at Humber Security Solutions would have been lost without you in the last minute preparations leading up to our SIA ACS accreditation. It is thanks to you that we achieved a pass on our ACS audit. I would also like to mention that Steve Brazier is a fantastic person who guided us with all the help we needed to achieve the ACS accreditation. I would also like to state that we at Humber Security Solutions fully recommend JAS Associates and will be staying with them for however long we are in business.
JAS Associates made achieving and maintaining BS EN 9001 a very simple process with clear guidance and regular reviews. Implementing the standard has improved our organisation and increased our customer base. JAS have provided Anetec Limited with an excellent service.
