What is ISO 9001 & Why Get Certified?
ISO 9001 is a quality management system aimed at kick-starting a cycle of improvement in your organisation while ensuring the quality of your product or service never declines, meaning your customers remain happy while your organisation as a whole improves.
A quality management system like ISO 9001 is extremely effective in its mission to spark change in your organisation due to the way in which it outlines the framework for your management system standard.
ISO 9001:2015 International Quality Management standard, when implemented, is a strategic activity that assists business performance improvement and provides a sound basis for consistently delivering products and services that meet stakeholder’s requirements.
It is the most recognised quality management system standard in the world. It is applicable to organisations of all sizes, industries or products and services it offers.
Why Get Certified?
There’s a number of reasons for getting certified, whether it’s the ability to bid for new tenders that were previously inaccessible to your organisation or the new-found confidence your organisation will have knowing you’ve got the backing of an internationally-renowned management system to fill the gaps in your operations. We’ve worked with clients across countless industries, each with different reasons for getting certified, but all maintaining the benefits of having implemented their quality management system.
Perhaps most significant of all, ISO systems ask you to continually look for areas in your organisation that could be improved- it’s not about a one-time fix. Once you’ve taken the lessons on board, you’ll be consistently analysing your organisation for things you can improve; you’ll be addicted to the potential improvements you can make in your organisation.
