ISO 9001:2008 / ISO 9001:2015 (QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM) – is the most widely recognized ISO standard. This is a basic quality management system that can be implemented in industries of any type, any size, anywhere in the world. Registration to ISO 9001:2015 Standard provides objective proof that a business has implemented an effective quality management system, and that it satisfies all of the requirements of the applicable ISO standard.
An external, impartial expert called a register or CB (Certification Body) conducts an on-site audit to determine whether or not a company is in conformance to the ISO 9001:2015 standard. If they are found to be in conformance, they will be issued a ISO 9001:2015 certificate showing their address, scope of operations and the seals of the accreditation bodies and board that give the register its legitimacy.
The ISO 9001:2015 series of standards are based on eight dynamic Quality Management System Principles.
We will help you design, document, implement and operate a simple quality management system that meets all the requirements of ISO 9001.
We will design the system around your existing business practices wherever possible, and if necessary help you identify and solve the areas of your business that do not conform to the ISO 9001 standard.
Once the system has been implemented, we will arrange for your system to be fully audited by one of our very own auditors, before recommending you for your ISO 9001 assessment by an external ISO accredited Assessment Certification Body.
