ISO:9001 Quality Management System

You may well be asking, "What is ISO:9001, and how on earth does it make a difference?"

The Wikipedia definition below gives an accepted understanding of what is the point of a company getting ISO:9001.

“ISO:9001 is a set of internationally recognized standards that help organizations ensure they meet customers and other stakeholder needs within statutory and regulatory requirements related to a product or service.”

In other words, a business that achieves ISO:9001 certification goes through a stringent checklist to take on best practices regarding processes and policies.

Doing this work, going through the process, ensures they maintain a superior standard and long life in the industry.

Companies with ISO:9001 Certification also get audited regularly by registered providers to ensure they keep up their compliance with these Standards.

The company itself also performs regular internal audits to ensure they achieve this compliance and by incorporating what is called a Quality Management System (QMS).
