ISO 9001 Certification – Quality Management System

ISO 9001 Certification – Quality Management System

ISO 9001 Certification is suitable, and can be achieved, by any type and size of organisation, from a one-man band to a multinational manufacturing company. This is because ISO 9001 specifies the requirements a quality system must meet, but it does not detail how they should be met. Therefore, leaving a large amount of flexibility and scope for implementation in widely differing sectors and organisations. In other words, ISO 9001 Certification is flexible, and can be implemented accordingly because of this flexibility.

ISO 9001 is the most widely used standard for Quality Management. It is internationally recognised and brings efficiency and improved customer satisfaction to any size organisation, small or large.

There are many benefits to achieving ISO 9001 Certification, including:

  • Greater success with tenders
  • Preferred contractor status
  • Reduced costs and re-work
  • Improved customer satisfaction and loyalty
  • Increased profitability
  • Competitive advantage

In addition, ISO 9001 is designed to be compatible with other management system standards such as ISO 14001 (Environmental Management). A combination of complementary standards can be integrated seamlessly as they share many principles, so choosing Certification for an integrated management system can provide you with outstanding value for money, particularly with the changes in the 2015 version of the Standard.
ISO 9001 Certification can usually be achieved in a relatively short amount of time; depending on the size of your organisation, you can expect to reach certified status within 2-6 months.
