ISO 9001 Quality Management
ISO 9001 certification is a primary public and private sector purchasing requirement. The standard specifies requirements for a quality management system where organisations wish to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. ISO 9001 also provides the framework to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement and the assurance of conformity to customer requirements.
Benefits of Compliance
ISO 9001 certification fulfils core requirements for ‘doing business’ with many Public and Private sector customers.
Provides documented policies and procedures, which will assist in the submission of response to Requests for Information (RFIs) during competitive tender processes.
Makes visible to all stakeholders the good governance controls and best practice processes implemented within your organisation.
Improves the resilience of organisational resources through development of systems and processes that will enable key services and supporting activities to be sustained throughout.
Provides a solid foundation for further development of management systems to embrace other industry standards that are likely to become important in the future.
