Benefits that can be realised from the implementation of ISO 9001 include the combined alignment of the activities of internal processes that are focused towards the improvement of customer satisfaction resulting in many other reimbursements, whether internal or external.

Association of British Investigators membership

The Association of British Investigators is the longest established organisation representing professional Private Investigators in the UK with its foundations laid way back in 1913. With the absence of any statutory control of the investigation industry in the UK the association recognised the need for self-regulation many years ago and set very high standards to meet the criteria for membership opting for quality rather than quantity.

Members are admitted only after stringent vetting. Members must conduct their business in a professional manner and by complying with a strict code of ethics with disciplinary procedures in place to monitor any transgressors.


Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association membership

With the support of over 1,300 pension schemes and over 400 supporting businesses, the PLSA are the voice for pensions and lifetime savings. We speak for everyone involved in workplace pensions, from the largest defined benefit scheme to the newest auto-enrolled employer. We support savers, helping their schemes to help them navigate their way to retirement.

Membership provides pension scheme service providers with unique business and networking opportunities with the key decision makers in the pensions industry through our first class conferences, exhibitions, regional meetings and forums.

The PLSA successfully represent their members’ views in Whitehall, Westminster and Brussels – lobbying for policies that work for them.
