What is ISO 9001 certification?
Published in 1987, the ISO 9001 quality management standard (ISO: International Organization for Standardization) has been an unprecedented success. It was the launchpad for a quality standard that quickly became established the world over. ISO 9001 is now in its fifth generation, and ISO 9001:2015 can lay claim to being “the mother of all standards”. All ISO standards are based on the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, with corresponding supplements to the various clauses. This standard for quality management systems is designed to create uniform, global quality standards which can be assessed and audited by independent third parties. Nowadays, ISO 9001 certification is undoubtedly the minimum requirement for international companies of all sizes when it comes to ensuring customer satisfaction and continuous improvement.
The standard is split into ten chapters dealing with topics such as organizational structure, customer focus, product requirements and quality policies.
