WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN ISO 9001 CERTIFICATION?

These international standards ask you to take a processed approach and a detailed look at your products and services and your supply chain to identify risks and apply the quality management principles across your operations. Once these activities have been signed off by an accredited certification body like Best Practice, you’re able to show key stakeholders and display evidence to your customers that you meet the highest international standard of quality, environmental considerations, safety and information security for your products and services.

Why you need an ISO certificate?

  • The work of the company is built in accordance with the standard, which summarized the most modern and most effective management experience. All internal production and management processes are being optimized, interaction between employees of all levels is improving.
  • As a result, the volume of defective products is reduced, and the costs of its production are reduced. Control is established for each technological stage of production or provision of services. This ensures that the intended end points/results are achieved. The constant quality of products or services rendered increases competitiveness, inspires consumer confidence in the company, has a positive effect on business reputation, and attracts more attention from potential partners and investors.
  • Certification for compliance with international standards helps to expand the sales market, attract foreign partners and customers.
  • Some technical regulations of the Customs Union (EAEU) provide for the possibility of issuing a certificate for products for a longer period if the manufacturer has a certified QMS.
  • The presence of a certificate is a condition for participation in a number of partnerships and obtaining membership in some organizations (SROs), and also gives weight when participating in tenders (especially when it comes to government orders).

How to get ISO certified?

Develop a quality management system

he first step to earning an ISO certification is to develop a QMS unique to the business. Identify core business processes, study them and determine where to make improvements. Work with managers and teams at all levels and document their processes. Then, using the standards set by the ISO, develop a QMS that works most effectively. Create a document outlining the new process and distribute it to all levels of the business.

01
Schedule an external audit

After some time has passed and all problems have gotten addressed, schedule an audit with a certified body. During this process, an expert auditor assesses the new QMS at all levels, looks for potential problems and determines whether it meets ISO standards. Keep in mind that the auditor may require access to formal documentation, to compare it to the actual work conducted.

03
Implement the new quality management system

The next step is to initiate the new QMS and monitor its progress. Ensure that procedures at all levels get carried out as outlined by the new documentation. If the new system requires new processes, make sure that teams receive training with new methodologies in mind. It often helps to create a reporting system so that managers and individual team members can submit issues as they arise.

02
Register the quality management system

If the company passes inspection, it can register its QMS for certification. To do so, the company gathers all of the documentation and submits it to the certifying party for review. Once the documentation passes review, the company earns its certification. Standards often change over time. To maintain certification, the QMS requires auditing every three years. Upon passing, the company also earns recertification after each audit.
