What is ISO 9001 (QMS)?

The ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) is the world’s most popular quality management standard, with over one million certified organisations in 180 countries worldwide. ISO 9001 QMS standard was developed to provide organisations with an efficient tool for quality management, regardless of size, industry or location. ISO 9001 provides a quality management framework that companies can use to ensure the quality of their products and services is consistent.

Through its emphasis on process approach and risk-based thinking, the ISO 9001 certification facilitates a flexible and user-friendly QMS. Companies choose ISO 9001 QMS certification to show that they have taken due care to maintain high standards. This reduces the chance of product faults, recalls or service shortcomings and ensures that your customers can buy with confidence.

What are the benefits of an ISO 9001 QMS certification?

ISO 9001 QMS certification demonstrates your organisation’s ability to consistently meet and exceed customer expectations. Many enterprise buyers and retailers require their suppliers to be ISO 9001 certified in order to minimise their risk of purchasing a poor product or service – being ISO 9001 certified boosts your sales potential. A business that achieves ISO 9001 certification can attain significant improvements in organisational efficiency and product quality by minimising waste and errors and increasing productivity. Our comprehensive guideline on ISO 9001 provides useful information on requirements and benefits.
