ASR can assist the CSIA member base in Achieving and Maintaining Certified Member status with thorough, independent auditing that contributes to the improvement of your business and customer satisfaction.

CSIA'S Certified Member Program

ASR's philosophy of utilizing Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety Systems as Business Management Tools to push companies for improvement aligns well with CSIA's goals and the Certified Member Program.

CSIA's ultimate goal is to improve business performance within the System Integrator industry. End-user customers can be assured that Certifi ed Member System Integrators are being audited by Independent Third Parties who verify Overall Management, Human Resource Management, Quality Management, Financial Management and New Business Development.

Continual Improvement and Customer Satisfaction

The Certified Member Program has been in place since 2001 to assist Control System Integrators and their customers. Historically, there was only a single source authorized by CSIA to provide certifi cation for this Program. Member growth and participation has necessitated a need for an alternative resource or choice to provide

this service. As an Accredited, Independent, 3rd Party Registrar, ASR does not provide consulting and cannot participate in the development of your system as this could impact the impartiality and objectivity of the assessment.

Systems Integrators can be assured ASR will provide an objective assessment along with periodic monitoring assisting your business with continual improvement.
