ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems
ISO 9001 is the most famous standard for quality improvement and is now used worldwide by more than one million companies in over 180 countries. With the possession of ISO 9001 certification, the end customer has full confidence that the services and/or products produced by the certified company correspond to precise specifications and regulations and that all phases related to their implementation are organized, controlled and validated.
Another fundamental aspect: today, in all public tenders or in the assignment of important supplies, it is now a mandatory requirement to possess the ISO 9001 certification.
How to obtain the Certification
The ISO 9001 certification must be submitted to ESQ CERTIFICATION ASSURANCE. The certification process consists of several stages, which will have the task of identifying the weaknesses of the company compared to the reference standard and to develop a program of participations aimed at their elimination. This route will touch all the levels of the company, aiming to the creation of an efficiently and consistently “quality policy” within the business company.
ISO 9001: compatible with other system
In addition, ISO 9001 is designed to be compatible with other ISO management system standards such as ISO 14001 (Environmental) and ISO 45001 (Health and Safety). All or any combination of these complementary standards can be integrated seamlessly. By sharing many principles, choosing an integrated management system can reduce cost considerably.
A business winner
The wide-ranging benefits of ISO 9001 are why the quality management standard has been implemented by millions of organisations across the globe. Designed to create a more disciplined work environment, ISO 9001 will help your workforce know exactly who does what, when and how. Maintaining a quality-led philosophy is exactly why ISO 9001 is stipulated within tenders. With buying authorities seeking to establish that their suppliers are reliable, asking for an internationally recognised standard eliminates the need to assess every single potential supplier.
