QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS – ISO 9001:2015
ISO 9001 Quality Certification is a widely recognised mark of quality that in many sectors is vital to winning new business. Many businesses who are ISO certified themselves will seek out suppliers with ISO 9001:2015 certification to evaluate their management systems effectiveness.
What is ISO 9001 ?
ISO 9001 Quality Certification international standard for quality management systems, demonstrating that procedures are in place to ensure the highest operational standards are met. Its aim is to prove that an organisation meets its own internal standards for quality and that these in turn meet international standards.
ISO 9001 is based on a quality risk management approach which provides a structured yet flexible framework for ensuring your processes consistently meet the needs of your customer and business needs.
ISO 9001 can be applied to any size or type of business. It covers all aspects of an organisation’s activities and will apply to almost any business following repetitive processes to produce a consistent standard of product or service.
Many such businesses have well established internal systems for maintaining standards, but ISO 9001 proves to stakeholders and customers that quality systems are meeting international best practice.
Having your quality management system independently certified by BritCert will demonstrate your commitment to quality, best practice and continual improvement of your procedures. It will also provide assurance that your quality management system is operating efficiently and effectively, continually demonstrating cost savings and efficiencies year after year.
