Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) describes different processes and workflows within an organisation. Frequently recurring work processes are clearly described in text form, thereby contributing significantly to efficiency enhancement, error reduction and risk minimisation.

From preparation to implementation of a SOP, the following steps have to be taken:

  • Documentation (e.g. description of a process)
  • Verification according to applied test criteria by a second person with signature
  • Information and training of parties concerned
  • Change management

    Such specifications often provide a framework for demanding and safety-relevant processes in a company.

    Furthermore, the implementation of a standard operating procedure is particularly useful in case of repeated occurrence of similar errors despite adequate experience and qualification of employees. In addition, work instructions (WI) provide a good basis for the training of new employees.

    We will be pleased to support you in developing your SOPs, tailor-made to meet your requirements, or in providing you with our own SOPs - already tried and tested!
