QUALITY MANAGEMENT

ISO 9001

ISO 9001:2015 is the International Standard for Quality Management Systems.

What is ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 sets out the steps necessary to adopt a quality management system.  It is designed to help organisations ensure they meet the needs and expectations of both customers and other interested parties, based on internationally recognised quality management principles set out by the International Standards Organisation (ISO).

At the heart of the standard is a quality policy and set of systems and principles that tie together business objectives, customer needs and your marketing plan.  When this approach to quality is embedded across the business every employee understands how their actions create a better customer experience and processes are put in place to continually review and improve that customer experience.

ISO 9001 is what is known as a ‘generic standard’ – this means it can be applied to any organisation no matter its size or complexity.

What ISO 9001 isnt...

Costly to achieve and obtain

Difficult to implement

Time consuming to maintain

Of little benefit to what we do

ISO 9001:2015 isn't Costly to achieve and Obtain

Obtaining certification doesn't need to break the bank...

While it may be a commercial decision for your organisation to certify to ISO 9001, the costs of implementation can be a lot less than you think. 

At IQS we provide a tailored ISO 9001 training yet cost effective approach to your certification, by supporting with proven systems and techniques to implementation that are quick to embed, but robust enough to support a results driven system.

Our "route to certification guide" outlines a brief summary of the key elements of the certification process, along with a set costing structure depending on your organisation's structure and requirements. 

 

Knowing where to start can be one of the biggest challenges to certification.  At IQS we're here to guide you through the entire process, every step of the way.

We can supply bespoke form templates, and support in document creation to make the process of implementation as hassle free as possible. 

Our implementation package is focused on delivering an ISO 9001 compliant system, that is moulded to your organisations needs and requirements. We don't offer a one size fits all solution and only believe on solutions that make it easier to do, what you already do best.

ISO 9001:2015 isn't Difficult to implement

 

To achieve the results expected from your ISO 9001 system will require a level of commitment from all within the organisation, regardless of how big or small. 

That being said, a well embedded system should be one that is "part of the framework" so to speak. complying with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 should be no more than "business as usual" for the majority of your activities.

 

A system developed with our support will do just that, with the added benefits of improving performance to achieve the results expected from implementing an ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System.
