What Our Partners Say


"We have used the technical knowhow, services and biosecurity experience of Stephen Mansfield, for a long period of time.  Therefore, when we were wanting to create a unique Health and Safety Competency Assessment for our teams, our first port of call was to discuss the opportunity with 4c Assessment Ltd.  Why? In the simplest terms, 4c provide the subject matter expertise necessary to tackle a variety of complex H&S categories in our industry and the challenge was met in Stephen’s usual positive manner! 


4c understand our needs and how we go about doing things, rather than trying to force an unrealistic process onto us; they customised their approach to fit the unique needs of our industry. Their commitment in creating a win for all involved, is something we greatly appreciate and continue to do so.  An excellent service all round from start to finish."


Rachel Hughes, Company HR and H&S Manager, Genera Ltd






"We had no experience at all in this area (Export Certification) and were quite lost on what to do next.  Then someone recommended Stephen as the go-to person.  Well, his in-depth knowledge and experience in the export arena, together with his proactivity and excellent communication skills, were invaluable to us when creating our export systems manual;

4c Assessment made the process simple and got us exactly what we wanted with the minimum amount of fuss."


Andrea Campbell, HR Manager, Goldpine Industries Ltd

"Pestaway NZ Ltd appointed 4c Assessment Ltd to carry out on-the-job competency assessments for our operational staff.  Health and Safety being a very important part of any business, we needed to make sure, what we had and promised on paper, we implemented in practise.  4c Assessment, with their expertise, assessed our staff on-the-job, thus helping us measure our staff competency with what we were putting into practise.  We had great feedback from the assessment and will certainly keep 4c Assessment on board. We recommend them to any company who are seeking risk mitigation in Health and Safety and best practise procedures for their industry."


Sandra Charlton, Director, Pestaway NZ Ltd

"Stephen came very highly recommended by AsureQuality as the go to person to assist us with  the review and in-affect the re-creation of our Biosecurity for Export Manual. 


Stephen’s knowledge of the system requirements and his skill at translating that into our business has been excellent and very appreciated. There have been several follow-up requirements as MPI have minutely critiqued our process from a biosecurity perspective and Stephen has responded in a timely and accurate way.  He’s a personable and very approachable bugger and very good at separating the’ chaff from the wheat’.


Any organisation considering either a review of their system or the initial application for Biosecurity for Export, would do well in considering 4c Assessment as a company to assist. I have no hesitation in recommending them."

Stephen was highly recommended to KLC.   He was honestly a godsend for KLC with his helpful assistance & guidance for us to receive the Codemark Certification. The mandatory requirements for a Quality Management Plan (based on ISO 10005) was delivered in a detailed professional document.


Stephen was also engaged to assist us with our MPI Export Approval and again, produced outstanding work for the new MPI manual requirements (approved by MPI in 2 hours – fastest ever!)

To that end, we would recommend Stephen Mansfield from 4c Assessment Ltd without question.
