ISO 9001
Quality Management System

An ISO 9001 certification is an internationally recognised standard; promoting quality management systems and demonstrating your commitment to customer satisfaction and continuous improvement.

The Standard provides guidance and tools for companies and organisations who want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customers’ requirements, and that quality is consistently improved.

Who is the accreditation for?

ISO 9001 is relevant to organisations of all shapes and sizes, including public, private and third sectors, across all industries.

The quality of products and services provided is vital to all organisations and, although quality management may look very different in a manufacturing business to a financial services company, many of the basic principles are the same and ISO 9001’s flexible framework allows organisations to take a structured approach to quality assurance and continual improvement.

How does the accreditation work?

Based on a plan-do-check-act cycle, ISO 9001 sets out a number of quality-based requirements which organisations should incorporate into their management systems.  Regular independent audits are conducted by a certification body for organisations to achieve and maintain their certification.
