Positive Purchasing Nails Double ISO Accreditation

Leading procurement and negotiation digital platform and training provider, Positive Purchasing, has attained accreditation for both ISO9001 and ISO27001.

A rather delighted Jonathan O’Brien, Positive Purchasing CEO, said: “Although we were there, or thereabouts, across most of our processes and procedures, we decided to do a full root and branch review of how the business runs, then make improvements and innovations that are above and beyond the ISO requirements.”

“Having the twin ISO accreditations is becoming a prerequisite for an increasing number of major organizations so now, not only are we even better able to deliver to our ever-growing list of global clients, but we are in great shape to bring our digital products to market.”


“This ‘gold standard’ of ISO certification reflects our commitment to a rigorous quality management and audit process, complete with seal of approval from The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).”

“Despite the impact of Brexit, Covid and the war in Ukraine, Positive Purchasing has just delivered its best ever performance and the two ISO accreditations are the cherry on the top of a fantastic year!”
