About us

ISO Specialist is part of a group of companies in the field of certification, consisting of KAM Consultants, KAM Academy and My ISO Genius (software). KAM Consultants was founded by Joost Vaessen in 2011 After seeing various consultants working on ISO implementations in previous years, he decided that ISO certification was becoming far too complex. Reason enough for him to take up the adventure and start his own consultancy firm. 

Over the years Joost and his team of consultants have guided more than 1000 companies towards various ISO certifications. As a highly experienced consultant, Joost set himself the goal of simplifying ISO certification for companies by sharing knowledge, providing training and developing software. This marked the birth of ISO Specialist. 


Our mission is really simple: we want to enable you to set up and maintain your management system all by yourself, without assistance of a consultant. We want to let as many companies as possible obtain their ISO certification independently. ISO Specialist uses a unique combination of Implementation Guides, Formats, Trainings as well as the software of My ISO Genius to replace a real-life consultant, thus allowing every company to conduct the certification process by themselves. If time is an issue a specialist can be hired to process all required information. 

Joost believes that everyone is capable of implementing their ISO Management System themselves, as long as the complex content is translated into concrete expectations and actions. The tool My ISO Genius is one the solutions. The tool that enables you to get your ISO certification yourself, as quickly (or slowly of course) as you want. Designed so that every step is outlined for you and all the time-consuming research is done. All you have to do is follow the steps. No more piles of folders full of paper everywhere, all your documentation is stored in the software tool. So we help you clean up as well.

One of the other solutions is the Implementation Guide. Whether you get started creating your own documents or you use your trial account, the implementation guide will help you through every step required for ISO 9001 certification. Are you ready to get your ISO 9001 certification?
