Some background information about Rob Kellock’s ISO Management Consultancy.

Managing Director

Rob Kellock
Managing Director RKBC

Rob Kellock, the Managing Director, has been work under ISO Management Systems all his working life.  As a Technician Apprentice he worked with military aviation standards. Then as an engineer he worked with ISO 9001, the quality management systems standard. He then gained great experience managing the quality of a laboratory accredited to ISO 17025 and owned by Which? Magazine. After 8 years there, the laboratory was sold to Intertek Testing and Certification, a leader in the tightly regulated area of product certification.  The next 5 years is where he gained the most valuable experience, auditing and developing managing systems to meet a range of standards and certification marks.  While responsible for the quality management of 3 separate laboratories, his responsibilities were increased to cover safety management too.

In 2007 Rob Kellock came to Australia working as a Management Systems Consultant and in 2008 he established the consultancy. 

In 2010 RKBC launched this website to advertise the company, serve its customers and provide a valuable resource of guidance.
