Quality Management ISO 9001: 2015 Certification

ISO 9001 is a QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM on which to build your company. It has a common sense, documented system focusing on consistency, reliability and improving the way your business operates. ISO 9001 certification focuses on organizational processes, the customer and improvement, and provides guidance on what is required to achieve an internationally recognized standard.

ISO 9001 certification does not tell an organization how to operate. It gives a company a set of guidelines in which to build an efficient business system with, which if incorporated correctly, will result in a quality product as its end product.

ISO 9001 certification can be applied to any organization, large or small, whether you are a manufacturer or service provider. The standard has been developed using a core set of seven quality management principles, which act as a common foundation for standards relating to quality management.

There are 3 key pieces to transitioning to the new ISO 9001:2015 standard. The first piece addresses the changes in the structure of the new standard.
