ISO 9001

Quality management systems

ISO 9001 is the international standard for a quality management system (“QMS”). In order to be certified to the ISO 9001 standard, a company must follow the requirements set forth in the ISO 9001 Standard. The standard is used by organisations to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements and to demonstrate continuous improvement.

Implementing ISO 9001 means your organisation has put in place effective processes and trained staff to deliver flawless products or services time after time.

ISO 9001 key points

Customer focus

ISO 9001 places a strong emphasis on meeting customer needs and expectations. Organisations are required to identify and understand customer requirements and strive to exceed them.

Continual improvement

ISO 9001 promotes a culture of ongoing improvement. Organisations must regularly review their processes, products, and services to identify areas for enhancement and implement corrective and preventive actions.

Risk-based thinking

The latest version of ISO 9001 (ISO 9001:2015) incorporates the concept of risk-based thinking. This requires organisations to identify and address risks and opportunities that could affect their ability to achieve quality objectives.

Leadership and commitment

Top management plays a crucial role in the success of an ISO 9001 QMS. They are responsible for establishing a quality policy, ensuring the QMS is integrated into the organisation's strategic direction, and demonstrating leadership and commitment.

Internal audits

Organisations are required to conduct internal audits to assess the effectiveness of their QMS and identify areas for improvement. These audits are typically carried out by trained internal auditors.


Organisations can choose to undergo certification by external certification bodies to demonstrate compliance with ISO 9001. Achieving ISO 9001 certification is often seen as a mark of quality and can be advantageous when competing in the market.

Driving business excellence

ISO 9001 is used by a wide range of organisations across various industries, including manufacturing, services, healthcare, and more. Implementing and maintaining an ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System can help organisations streamline their processes, reduce waste, enhance customer satisfaction, and improve their overall business performance.
