ISO 9001:2015 is of fundamental importance and is the UK’s recognised standard for effective quality management. We have specialist consultants who assist accredited companies with an important set of principles that ensure a practical, common-sense approach to the management of business activities. For people to believe in the authenticity of your business quality management systems are crucial, and proof of these systems being in place are a sign to your customers that you are trustworthy and worth doing business with.
ISO 9001 accreditation allows for better customer satisfaction, effective control of operations and costs, and continual improvement in all areas of operation.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 certification is the International standard for Quality Management systems. The benefits of being ISO 9001 accredited will demonstrate to your customers, whether existing or potential, that you are committed to the quality of your product or service and have been assessed accordingly. By undergoing the process, you will be investing in your business and ISO 9001 certification will give it credibility.
ISO 9001 is in essence, basic common sense set down on paper in a rigorous and organised way. The principles are the same whether you employ two or ten thousand people. ISO 9001 will identify the basic disciplines, specify the areas that require written procedures or processes, and the criteria to ensure that products and services meet these requirements.
Benefits of having ISO 9001 certification
- It is cost effective
- Improved product/service reliability through best practice methodology
- Customers have confidence in your product or service
- Effective marketing opportunities
- You will consistently meet your customers’ needs
- Effective control over business processes
- A distinctive lead over competitors who may not have ISO 9001 certification.
- Removal of a barrier to working with many organisations, e.g. government and local authorities. Some larger bodies even make it a requirement to get on their tender list.
