Five Steps to ISO 9001 Certification

World Standard Day is a great reminder that reaching international levels is an achievable goal for all organizations. With ISO management standards, our Business Assurance team is able to support you through this process. The world standard of ISO 9001 dominates the quality management standards, with over one million certified organizations in 180 countries around the world. The popularity of ISO 9001 comes from its ability to help companies develop a stable quality management system, in which the standards ensure high level quality is met, while allowing room for organizations to customize the system to their needs. ISO 9001 allows businesses to outwardly show their commitment to meet and exceed customer expectations and tells other companies that efficiency and productivity are a top priority. As a leader in the field of management systems, TÜV SÜD Americas finds the best path forward for organizations to promote quality and safety throughout the entire business.

How ISO 13485 Shapes the Medical Industry

Why do we need standards? World Standards Day answers that question by raising awareness on the importance of standardization. The world standard ISO 13485 leads the medical industry as one of the most popular standards for quality management. The quality of medical devices has a direct impact on their effectiveness, possibly more so than any other type of manufactured product. Certification to ISO 13485 by an accredited certification body provides a presumption of conformity while also ensuring the safety of patients and users. TÜV SÜD Americas offers a complete range of testing, certification and auditing services to manufacturers of medical devices, helping them to manage risks and to protect and promote the health and safety of patients and users.
