HPA was established in 1985 by Arthur Parkinson, a professional manager with a long established background in Management Consultancy. Prior to setting up the business, the HPA partners were involved in some of the pioneering implementations of bS5750 (predecessor to ISO 9000) in the early 1980's. Following many implementations it was recognised that contrary to the popular opinion of the time ISO 9001 could be successfully and beneficially applied to businesses of all sizes. Since its creation the company has developed a unique and practical approach to the installation of Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety and information Security Management Systems which are easy to apply while meeting all the requirements of the relevant standards. An approach which maximizes the benefits gained while minimising disruption.
