What is ISO 9001 2016-08-26T10:58:04+00:00

The letters “ISO” stands for “International Organisation for Standardisation”.
ISO 9001 is the most widely recognised standard, and is a certified quality management system (QMS). It provides businesses an objective proof, to show their costumers their ability to continue to provide the products or services that meet their needs.

Benefits of ISO 9001

  • Cost Reduction: You will improve productivity, customer satisfaction, product and processes, which all will contribute to cost reductions.
  • Improved Competitiveness: An ISO 9001 certification will give a competitive edge compared to other companies.
  • Global Recognised Standard: It is recognised globally, so your certification will be understood no matter what market your costumers are from.
  • Compatible: ISO 9001 is compatible with other standards, making it easy to implement ISO 14001 or 18001 in combination with it.
