ISO Standards - 9001

Benefits of ISO Standards 9001

ISO 9001 helps organizations ensure their customers consistently receive high-quality products and services, which in turn brings many benefits, including satisfied customers, management, and employees.

Because ISO 9001 specifies the requirements for an effective quality management system, organizations find that using the standard helps them:

  • Organize a QMS (Quality Management System)
  • Create satisfied customers, management, and employees
  • Continually improve their processes
  • Save costs

More than 3,000 employees were trained to the standard, enabling three critical components of the system’s success: training, communication and respect, and efficiency.

ISO 9001 is the only standard in the ISO 9000 series to which organizations can certify. Achieving ISO 9001:2015 certification means that an organization has demonstrated the following:

  • Follows the guidelines of the ISO 9001 standard
    Fulfills its own requirements
  • Meets customer requirements and statutory and regulatory requirements
  • Maintains documentation

Certification to the ISO 9001 standard can enhance an organization’s credibility by showing customers that its products and services meet expectations. In some instances or in some industries, certification is required or legally mandated. The certification process includes implementing the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and then completing a successful registrar’s audit confirming the organization meets those requirements.
