ISO 9001 is the international standard for a quality management system (“QMS”). In order to be certified to the ISO 9001 standard, a company must follow the requirements set forth in the ISO 9001 Standard. The standard is used by organizations to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements and to demonstrate continuous improvement.
What is ISO Certification?
ISO certification certifies that a management system, manufacturing process, service or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardization and quality assurance. ISO (international Organization for Standardization) is an independent, non-governmental, international organization that develops standards to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services and systems.
ISO certifications exist in many areas of industry, from energy management and social responsibility to medical devices and energy management. ISO standards are in place to ensure consistency. Each certification has separate standards and criteria and is classified numerically.
ISO refers to the International Organization for Standardization. This organization develops the standards, and it does in order to certify businesses or organizations. Certification is handled third party and tested annually.
The number appearing after ISO classifies the standard. All standards within the ISO 9000 family refer to quality management. ISO 9001 is among ISO’s best known standards, and it defines the criteria for meeting a number of quality management principles. It helps businesses and organizations be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction.
The final number in an ISO certification refers to the version of the standard that’s being met and is represented by the calendar year those standards were launched. 2015 is the fifth edition of the ISO 9001. It was launched in September 2015.
To become ISO 9001 certified your organization must:
- Follow the steps to implement an ISO 9001 quality management system.
- Then a certification body audits the performance of your organization against the latest version of the ISO 9001 Requirements. If you pass this audit, the Registrar issues an ISO 9001 Certificate demonstrating that your organization is registered to ISO 9001 for a three year period.
- Finally, the organization must be re-certified every three years in order to maintain their ISO 9001 certification status.
ISO 9001 Certificate
If no significant noncompliances have been discovered or after any non compliances have been corrected, the registrar issues the ISO 9001 certification. The certificate is typically valid for three years and can then be easily renewed.
