Press Release

American Global Standards (AGS) announces its exclusive ASRP Program™ (Abbreviated Surveillance & Recertification Program) for ISO 9001:2008 & ISO 14001:2004 certification.

The reason for developing this program is simple: to save our customers thousands of dollars annually and top manager’s valuable time. Total cost of ASRP Program™ is $500.00 per year for companies who transfer with an existing certification.

We realize in today’s market place, the value of ISO 9001 certification varies from company to company, for some it is a requirement to do business, for the others its value has been minimized as “lower echelon” competitors have become certified.

HOW ASRP PROGRAM™ WORKS: The AGS ASRP Program™ is based on the Advanced Surveillance & Recertification Program™ Customers will be issued certificates good for three years based upon their existing certification and annual review by AGS of their Internal Audit & Management Review Meeting Summaries. No onsite audit is required.

AGS will likely visit your facility at least once in the three year certification period. This visit is to confirm implementation of the clients system and is not a time consuming, “non-value added” “audit-to find –fault” exercise.

AGS is accredited by the American International Accreditation Organization- Bureau of Accredited Registrars ( an independent, not-for-profit organization.

AGS has certified over 2000 companies in the United States, Canada, Japan, Korea & India. AGS accredited certificates are recognized worldwide.

AGS ASRP Program™ is a cost effective and viable alternate to the “policeman” approach of other registrars. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
