QIC - The Company


Quest International certification was founded by Mr.Balasakthivelu Ex-Airman Indian Air Force using his team and with the help of their extensive knowledge of all aspects of the 'quality world'. Knowledge gained through working as Quality Managers in industry, Lead Assessors/Managers with other assessment bodies and freelance consultants.


Today, QIC has its own regional assessors throughout India and has operations world-wide. The Governing board still takes a 'hands on' approach to run the business from the head office in Chennai, maintaining their original enthusiasm.


Small Businesses


QIC's roots lie in providing a service which is affordable for small to medium-sized businesses. However, the company's pricing structure and its philosophy of being approachable on any quality matter has resulted in organisations of all sizes choosing to work with QIC.


The QIC Approach


Understanding what it is like to be on the receiving end of the assessment process, QIC has developed a unique package of benefits for companies seeking registration for their management system(s).


Friendly and down-to-earth


There is no need for assessments to be traumatic. QIC's assessors are selected for their ability to work with the quality representative from the company and to be approachable; establishing that the quality system works for the benefit of the company and checking it as though they were customers of the firm. Emphasis is firmly placed on practicality.


A rapid response


Whether it be a query about system certification, or an urgent need to achieve registration itself, QIC specialises in providing answers or audits at speed. Friendly help and expert knowledge are always available at the end of a telephone.


The use of Industry Experts


When selecting staff for a particular audit, QIC will always choose an expert from the industry being assessed. This ensures that the audit process takes place in an air of mutual understanding. There is no conflict arising from a lack of knowledge of the challenges faced in running that particular business. The auditor and the company being audited both speak the same language.

Quality Documents reviewed on site


QIC has a policy of visiting companies applying for certification. This enables its quality documents to be reviewed and provides an opportunity for the auditor or the company representative to discuss any areas of concern before the audit itself. Even more importantly, it provides an opportunity for the company to get to know the auditor, starting to build a rapport.

Free preliminary visits to companies seeking registration, to discuss what the process involves.
