ISO 9001 requires a compliant Quality Management System (QMS), proof that it’s working, and an external audit by a third-party registrar. Sound overwhelming? That’s why we’re here to help.
How Much Time?
The average ISO certification takes 4 months, but we’ve seen companies certified in as quickly as 30 days.
What is ISO Certification and why is ISO Certification Necessary?
ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization. ISO is a non-governmental organization that has developed standards to confirm the safety, quality and efficiency of services, products, processes, and systems. Standardization goals include promoting global collaboration and compatibility, simplifying production in industries, and making sure that products are consistent and safe.
ISO certification means that your organization or company is successful in meeting requirements set by an independent international organization (ISO) related to employee safety, data privacy, environmental safety, assets security, and quality.
All ISO certifications involve adopting standardized processes in compliance with ISO. The result of becoming ISO certified is having a higher level of quality for processes, services, products and in general, for the entire organization.
Establish Trust and Credibility
ISO Certification is important for several varied reasons. Even if you are not required to have it, an ISO certification can help to establish trust with your customers and credibility with your investors and potential business partners. Many companies are required by their governments to have ISO certifications. This is especially true if you do business with top government offices like the Department of Defense in the United States.
ISO 9001 (sometimes referred to as the ISO 9000 family of quality management standards) is the original quality management standard. It’s the world’s most widely recognized quality management system certification. Click here to learn more.
