Who Needs Compliance?
Every business can benefit from being ISO certified. It does not matter what size your business is, what industry you operate in or whether you are a product or service organisation.
What is ISO Compliance?
For over 70 years, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has been working to establish global standards for quality, safety, security and efficiency. A business is said to be ISO compliant if it is following the rules, regulations and guidelines issued by the ISO. Following ISO standards is not a legal requirement and the decision to comply lies solely with an organisation. However, ISO standards are recognised in many industries and can provide businesses with a huge range of benefits.
What is ISO Certification?
Certification to the relevant ISO standard confirms that a business is following the guidelines set by ISO. To be recognised as ISO compliant, a company must undergo an audit by an accreditation firm. ISO does not offer certification directly. A third party certifying agency conducts the audits and presents a certificate to the compliant business. The certificate can then be used when bidding for contracts and in marketing material to demonstrate that products and services adhere to the ISO’s exacting standards.
What are the Most Widely Used ISO Standards?
Since it was established in 1947, the ISO has published over 21,000 standards. The most common used by businesses is ISO 9001. ISO 9001 is the umbrella for a family of quality management standards, of which there are fourteen in total. Of these ISO 9001:2015is the only one that can be certified to.
