It's not hard as such but it is time consuming and the level of detail is, to some extent, probably dependent on what level you're planning on getting accredited, or maybe self-certifying (which is of very little value commercially.) If it's with a UKAS certification body (CB), e.g. BSI / NQA / DNV / BM Trada, it is very involved as needs to satisfy external audits at a high level. If 3rd party accredited, but non-UKAS, then less so.


Most businesses I'm aware of engage an external consultant to assist and direct the process. 


The important thing, IME, is to ensure the procedures reflect the way you work / operate rather than the other way round as then it becomes negative, i.e. having to produce evidence for audit for the sake of it.


Hope this helps, a little..
