What is ISO 9001?

 

 

9001 ISO 9001 is the international Standard against which the Quality Management System of a business is evaluated, and is intended to demonstrate that a business can provide a consistent standard of quality in the goods and services it provides to its customers.

Originally introduced to supersede BS 5750 and its adopted Euro Norms in the mid 1980's, the latest revision model of the Standard has now been published, ISO 9001:2008. This now supersedes all earlier revisions, although the latest "old standard'’ (9001:2000) is still valid for 2 years from December 2008.

The Standard is worded to allow it to be adaptable and non-prescriptive, and therefore it can be applied to all companies. Most importantly, it is a common sense and practical method for confirming best practice and improving procedures. The KQR approach to Certification emphatically captures this purpose.

Most companies are already operating many of the requirements of the Standard but have not documented them. KQR capitalise on this to your advantage.

We incorporate all necessary modifications and changes within our process at no extra cost, whilst many certification companies charge for this service.

 

How your business can benefit from ISO 9001?

Being able to achieve a significant competitive edge over your rivals is the major benefit that ISO 9001 Certification brings.

Recent surveys reveal that almost 80% of businesses sought ISO 9001 Certification because of their need to increase or maintain their market share.

 

Another survey amongst firms having gained ISO 9001 Certification showed that:

Profits increased - Costs lower due to less wastage

Sales increased - Fewer orders lost

Exports increased - Internationally recognised

Management was more effective - Less time wasted

More prospects were realised - ISO 9000 can open doors restricted to only Certified suppliers

Certification is the acknowledgement by a quality third party of your Systems
