ISO certification is a demonstration of conformity to the highest possible standards – it can set you apart from competitors, attract new customers to your business, and assure those working with you that you are committed to efficiency and consistency. In this blog, we will break down ISO 9001 standards, and explain why this is often the first standard that a business pursues.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 is a quality management standard in the ISO 9000 family. When an organisation achieves this ISO certification, it demonstrates that daily operations are maintaining the internationally recognised standards of excellence. It is scalable and non-industry specific, meaning that any organisation can adopt the ISO standards. The generic nature of standard, means that each organisation has the ability to tailor their ISO journey to their specific situation.
ISO 9001 Requirements
To become ISO 9001 certified, a company or organisation must implement a comprehensive Quality Management System (QMS). This enables integrated monitoring of their operations. The organisation must demonstrate its ability to render services or create products consistently and in line with regulations. It also needs to actively enhance customer satisfaction through the findings of the QMS. Including continuous improvement and conformance with relevant statutory requirements.
