In the global market, there must be control and balance. Otherwise, it will be difficult to maintain stability and quality between industries and countries. International standards help maintain compliance, and one of these organizations is ISO.
What is ISO certification?
ISO certification ensures that a management system, production process, service or documentation procedure meets all standardization and quality assurance requirements. ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is an independent, non-governmental, international organization that sets standards to ensure the quality, safety and efficiency of products, services and systems.
ISO certifications are used in many areas of the industry, from energy management and social responsibility to medical equipment and energy management. Each standard has separate criteria and is classified numerically. For example, let’s look at the ISO 9001: 2015 certification, which is related to the quality management system.
ISO 9001 definition
The ISO 9001: 2015 certification consists of three components: ISO, 9001, and 2015. In the following, we want to see what each component represents.
As mentioned, ISO refers to the International Organization for Standardization. This organization sets the standards and does so in order to certify businesses or organizations. The certification is done by a third party and is tested annually.
The number that appears after ISO classifies the standard. All ISO 9000 family standards refer to quality management. ISO 9001 is one of the most well-known ISO standards and defines criteria for complying with a number of quality management principles. In addition, it helps businesses and organizations become more efficient and improve customer satisfaction.
The final number in the ISO certificate refers to the standard version and is indicated by the calendar year in which those standards were issued. 2015 is the fifth edition of ISO 9001 and was released in September 2015.
What does ISO 9001 certification mean ?
If an organization or company obtains and implements ISO 9001 certification, it means that it has met the requirements set out in ISO 9001. ISO 9001 requires organizations to define and follow a quality management system that is both appropriate and effective, and to ask them to identify areas for improvement and to address those improvements.
As a result, it is commonly understood that an organization that claims to have ISO 9001 certification, its products and services meet quality standards.
