What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 QMS is the internationally recognised quality management system standard (QMS). ISO 9001 is the global benchmark for QMS, topping over one million certifications worldwide.
Who can use ISO 9001 QMS?
ISO 9001 is applicable to any organisation – irrespective of their size or geographical location. One of the major strengths of ISO 9001 is its wider appeal for all types of organisation. Because it focuses on processes and customer satisfaction rather than procedures, it is equally applicable to service providers as well as manufacturers.
Global sectors have also continued to focus their efforts on quality, with sector specific QMS derivatives of ISO 9001 available for the automotive, aerospace, defence and medical sectors.
Why is ISO 9001 important for your business?
ISO 9001 QMS provides the infrastructure, procedures, processes and resources needed to help organisations both monitor and improve their performance to drive efficiencies, client service and product excellence.
ISO adopters have higher rates of corporate survival, sales and employment growth.
