Keeping Quality Simple


ISO/ISO 17020 Accreditation

"Sonja was the exact right person for our needs. We had a very tight time frame, we were inexperienced in the field for which we were seeking accreditation, we needed to consult with a diverse range of people and we had little existing framework to build around. 
Sonja quickly understood the size of the task and the resources that were required to meet the deadlines.
Her calm disposition and her engaging personality combined with a steely determination ensured that that the end product was succinct, met all the legislative requirements and was practical from an operational point of view.
I will use Sonja's services again and highly recommend her to others."

Peter Adams, General Manager, ATC WorkSmart

"The QMS you developed has fulfilled its purpose without being complicated, as you promised"

ISO/ISO 17025 Accreditation

"Thanks so much for your new lab quality manual and your training with me for (the updated) 17025. All went well and the feedback on LQM was excellent. I love it, it is so easy to read.​ 
(The NATA Staff Officer) looked at me and said 'a breath of fresh air'. Your input is invaluable."

Andrew Marshall, Laboratory Manager, Kimberley Soils Laboratory 


"Materials Engineering Services (MES) is a Construction Materials Testing service located in the South West with a priority focus in providing a quality service to our clients. We believe that ongoing training for all personnel is essential in order to continue to provide this level of service.
Our recent training endeavour "Advanced Quality Systems" was presented by Sonja McFarlane of Simply Quality Pty Ltd. The ADVQS package was tailored specifically for MES and included comprehensive notes on the day. The course overall was informative and engaging from start to finish even with helpful tips on surviving your next NATA audit.
MES has no hesitation in recommending Simply Quality for your next training session.'"

Colin Dinis, Director, Materials Engineering Services

"Thanks for presenting these two courses ('ISO/IEC 17025 The Big Picture' and 'The How and Why of Internal Auditing'), well executed and easy to follow."
Jesse Gray,  Laboratory Manager, Great Southern Geotechnics

"Your course material and delivery were excellent, I really gained a lot out of the session and am pleased to be able to confidently decipher the requirements of ISO17025 now. Thank you!"
