ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) defines the general quality assurance requirements as well as quality systems models that can be used by any type of company anywhere in the world. The current version of the Standard is ISO 9001:2008, and it is an internationally recognised standard which refers to features of a product or service which are required by the customer. Thus, this standard helps companies to ensure that its products or services are able to meet the customers’ quality requirements as well as complying with any regulations applicable to those services or products.
Components of ISO 9001
ISO 9001 is also compatible with ISO 14001 (Environmental), ISO 27001 (ISMS), and OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety). As a result, these standards can be integrated with ISO 9001 seamlessly. This is because these standards all share many of the same principles, therefore allowing companies the opportunity to opt for a complete integrated managing system. We can help you develop your own fully integrated management system from scratch, or work with your existing system(s) to add and review your system(s) completely.
