Quality Management System
The ISO 9001:2008 certification is an international standard that defines good management practices. The certification aims at providing a global standard that spells out quality and trust. To meet the requirements for the ISO 9001:2008 certification, an organisation should demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet applicable regulatory requirements and satisfy customer needs.
ISO 9001:2008 certification
The purpose of ISO 9001:2008 is to facilitate international trade by providing a single standard that is recognised and respected globally. It is a generic standard and is applicable to organisations in all areas of work. Some of the areas are manufacturing, processing, servicing, printing, forestry, electronics, steel, computing, legal services, financial services, accounting, trucking, banking, retailing, and so on.
Manufacturing, commercial and service organisations can reap many benefits from quality system certification. Management systems optimise production processes, increase efficiency and reduce costs. An ISO 9000 certificate indicates the organisation's adherence to quality management practices and minimises the potential for product liability related problems. These good practices are compiled into a set of standardised requirements for a quality management system for your organisation.
ISO 9001:2008 is important because of its international acceptance. The ISO 9001:2008 certification is recognised in more than 120 countries and is the logical choice for any organisation involved in international business or committed to quality.
Quality management is what the organisation does to guarantee that its products and services satisfy the customer's quality requirements and comply with all the regulations applicable to those products or services.
