ISO 9001 is the quality management system (QMS) standard, as the name implies it stands for the ‘quality’ any firm using ISO 9001 can confidently prove its adherence to quality standards. An assurance of quality produces enormous benefits for the company that is committed to receive and retain this certificate.
Many customers require their vendors to have this certification to ensure the quality standards. It is an ‘assurance’ that the vendor has met the specified quality standards as per ISO 9001.
ISO 9001 evaluates whether your Quality Management System is appropriate and effective, while forcing you to identify and implement improvements. This journey towards receiving ISO 9001 helps your processes improve, become more consistent, and you achieve your objectives with greater regularity at the end. Results are quite tangible and can be measured quantitatively through increased revenue, reduced costs (waste) and improvement in profits.
