Environmental Management Consultancy of the Year 2022

Innovation & Excellence Awards – Corporate Livewire

The Innovation & Excellence Awards have been going for seven years and we were delighted to have won Environmental Management Consultancy of the Year 2022.

The Awards celebrate the innovation and excellence of recognised individuals, teams and organisations across the country that are proven to be the best in their market over the past 12 months.

Having been nominated, we had to supply evidence of our work, feedback from clients and previous accreditations.

This is the second award in six months for QM Projects, the first was The Best Environmental Management Systems Consultancy 2021, awarded by SME News and Southern Enterprise Awards.


We are very proud to have helped our clients achieve the ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety certification which is a first for ourselves and Si Protech (UK) Ltd.

We have worked with Si Protech consistently over the years with the implementation of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. We regularly assist the company with maintaining their systems and completing internal audits. This recent achievement in Food Standards Safety was a completely new standard for us, and our clients.

Si Protech (UK) Ltd have achieved a management system which now meets stringent food safety requirements and developed an excellent partnership to achieve the ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management Standards and ISO 22002-4:2013 (amended 2019) Food Safety Technical Standard.

The rigorous processes and assessments required involved an intense learning curve.  The implementation (plan, do, check, act) process and a gap analysis was provided by an expert from BSI. We then experienced a delay between the Stage 1 and Stage 2 assessments due to various reasons including Covid-19. However, we used this time productively to go through the findings from the gap analysis to make improvements.

The result after the Stage 2, was that Si Protech (UK) Ltd. was recommended for ISO 22000:2018 Certification, provided by BSI, and who are accredited by UKAS.

Thanks must go the Directors and Management Team at Si Protech (UK) Ltd for their dedication towards achieving this award, and to the Lead Auditor and Technical Team from BSI.
