We have just received news the cut-off date for the Western Australian Industry Participation Strategy (WAIPS) has been extended to February 28th, 2019
The Western Australian Industry Participation Strategy (WAIPS Round) is an initiative from the Western Australian Government aimed at providing small to medium-sized businesses with access to funding for selected activities.

Eligible businesses can use the funding for the following activities:

• Expert consultant services
• Equipment
• Improvements to internal business infrastructure and systems, including ISO certification, and
• Training

As a business in Western Australia that is not currently certified to a standard, this represents an opportunity to save $1000’s on the cost of gaining ISO certification.
Being certified to an ISO standard allows a company to:
• Get on preferred suppliers lists
• Win more tenders and grow, and
• Stand out among competitors
Already certified to a standard?
Business’ can receive grants towards new certification as part of this scheme. So, if you’re already certified to ISO9001 and want to add ISO45001 Safety Certification, you can apply to have up to 50% of the cost reimbursed to you

New to ISO certification? Our 1-day essentials courses have been designed to help businesses start making the most out of their certification. These courses will help make the process of attaining and maintaining ISO certification smoother and less time-consuming. For more information on our courses, visit our training pages.
