Quality management system certification is a key step towards compliance and a necessity to improve the processes and sustainability of your business.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 is one of the standards within the range of ISO 9000 standards and is used for the purpose of conformity assessment. The goal of ISO 9001 is to ensure that your business maintains a reliable standard of quality regarding goods and services so that your employees and customers are constantly satisfied.
ISO 9001 also serves as the basis for many other important sector-specific standards, including ISO 13485 (medical devices), as well as widely used management system standards such as ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.
ISO 9001 certification is suitable for all sizes and types of organizations and is well established around the world as an invaluable Quality Management System standard and has been established almost worldwide in more than 170 countries.
Why is ISO 9001 important for your business?
It is essential for businesses to offer products and services that not only meet but also surpass customer expectations. At the same time, cutting costs and remaining competitive is crucial. ISO 9001 certification demonstrates your organization’s ability to consistently meet and exceed customer expectations.
Many buyers require suppliers to be ISO 9001-certified to minimize their risk of purchasing a low quality product or service. A business that achieves ISO 9001 certification will be able to attain significant improvements in organizational efficiency and product quality by minimizing waste and faults, and increasing productivity. Additionally stock listed corporations require ISO certified suppliers.
