About
It all started when…

 

The name AVU is of Finnish origin and translated means asset, merit, honesty, grace, and virtue.

AVU was started to bring customer service and value-added auditing back to the registration process. AVU believes that clients are partners in the registration process and not just income.  AVU does not charge any application fees, annual fees, filing fees or management fees.  AVU believes in charging for what we do and that is registering and maintaining your organization to the applicable standard.

AVU Registrations, Inc. has registered many businesses because of our exemplary customer service, follow-up capabilities, and thorough attention to detail.  AVU has achieved this through our commitment to offer affordable, efficient, and dependable registration services.  Please let us introduce ourselves and our philosophy.

AVU provides value added audits to your organization through the auditing of your systems.  AVU uncovers issues in your systems so you will have the opportunity to strengthen your system through the auditing process. AVU’s philosophy on audit findings (corrective actions) is they are an asset to your system and not something detrimental.  We like to call them positive (Yippee) moments because they give you an opportunity to find and correct a deficiency in your system and this allows the system to be more effective and efficient.

That being stated, our auditors and staff are ready to assist you in all aspects of your registration process.  

AVU has over 150 combined years of experience in quality, environmental, safety, medical device, 17025, automotive and aerospace management systems.  AVU understands the registration process from both sides, we have been auditors as well as the auditee.  AVU also understands that audits can be an inconvenience, so we pride ourselves in staying on task and conducting audits to your system as it is written.  AVU audits your system in such a way that any nonconformance will be directly related to the standard in which you are registered, your procedures or customer requirements as applicable.

AVU believes this is a three-way partnership between AVU, you and your customer.
