About the ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001 Standard for Quality Management is the world’s best recognised management system framework. Over one million organisations around the world are ISO 9001 certified.
The Standard requires an organisation to pay systematic attention to every aspect of its operations and set in place processes that ensure its specified goals and aims can be achieved in practice. A strong focus on customer satisfaction and continuous improvement are features of ISO 9001 certified organisations. The Standard is applicable to all industry sectors.
Once a management system is implemented, it can be assessed by an independent, third party certification body to ensure that it meets its stated aims and is in accordance with the requirements of the Standard.
