What is the ISO9001 Standard?

ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems is the most internationally recognised business management Standard. The ISO 9001 Standard outlines a set of generic requirements that are best practice for the management of organisations.

Over a million organisations throughout the world, from manufacturing through to the service sector, have adopted ISO 9001 to achieve uniformity in their business processes, thereby enhancing business improvement.1

What is a Quality Management System (QMS)?

To achieve Certification under the ISO 9001 Standard, an organisation has to develop a Quality Management System (QMS). A QMS is the defined policies and procedures that provide a formal framework describing the way an organisation conducts its core business and meets the requirements of the Standard.1
