What is ISO Certification?
ISO certification means that an organisation or company has implemented an ISO management system in accordance with relevant ISO standards and passed an official third party certification audit.
ISO certification is relevant across numerous industries from the security and medical sectors to energy management and social responsibility. With ISO standards in place, businesses are able to ensure that continuous improvements are made to deliver customers with an improved, consistent performance that meets their needs. This means that not only does the customer benefit from receiving the exact products or services that they require but internally the business will profit from improved operational results due to reduced wastage and increased efficiency.
By choosing to develop an ISO certified Quality Management System (QMS), companies and organisations make the strategic decision to not only work on continuous improvement but to focus on providing their customers with consistent quality across all products and services.
What is The Relevant ISO for Software Development?
Each ISO certification has separate standards and criteria which are classified numerically.
This internationally recognized standard is designed to be a powerful business improvement tool for organisations of any size. This works by helping companies to:
- Continually improve operations
- Streamline processes and reduce costs
- Win more new business and compete in tenders
- Increase customer satisfaction
- Build a sustainable business with more resilience
- Display strong corporate governance
- Have effective relationships with the shareholders and supply chain
The ISO 14001 environmental management system is becoming increasingly important in today’s society due to increasing concerns about the environmental impact that organisations have at both a local and international level.
This system works by providing the framework that businesses need to take control over their immediate and long term environmental impact of their products, processes, goods and services.
This can help organisations to:
- Minimise their environmental footprint
- Reduce the risk of pollution incidents
- Inform them of operational improvements
- Guarantee compliance with the relevant environmental legislation
- Ensure their business develops in a sustainable way
Applicable to businesses across a wide range of industries, of all sizes and operational scope – ISO 45001 is a rigorous international standard for health and safety. This works by enabling companies to integrate the ISO with their Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System and provide ways to:
- Improve OH&S performance
- Prevent workplace injuries
- Reduce work related health issues
- Improve employee safety
- Improve employee health & wellbeing
How Can ISO Certification Benefit Your Business?
ISO develops standards that are put into place to ensure the quality, safety and efficiency of products, services and systems with an organisation.
ISO certification is a legal or contractual requirement in some industries and for others it can be a valuable tool when looking to enhance credibility, improve performance and demonstrate high levels of quality service.
This can be particularly helpful for businesses that are looking to bid for contracts, attract new clients or even enter a new market.
ISO standards can help software development businesses to:
- Identify and address risks
- Operate more efficiently
- Meet statutory and regulatory requirements
- Reach new markets
How to Get Certified?
ISO requirements and the process that certification entails can be overwhelming which is why at JR Consultants we work to keep the process simple for our clients.
Firstly we will carry out an initial assessment of the business to ascertain where the existing systems stand in regards to the chosen ISO.
This will then allow us to draw up recommendations for things that will need to be changed for the purpose of becoming compliant.
Then we will create a strategy to help guide you on how to best implement those recommendations which will allow you to be fully prepared for the ISO assessment.
