ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems

The implementation of this standard is the key to the successful management of quality performance. ISO 9001 gives the framework to monitor and improve working practices. It is a management tool for achieving business objectives such as increasing market share, reducing costs, improving controls and efficiencies and customer satisfaction. Achieving ISO 9001 demonstrates that a company has the procedures in place to meet their customers’ requirements consistently.

ISO 9001 is currently being used by nearly a million organisations worldwide, and sets the standard not only for quality management systems, but management systems in general.

In addition, ISO 9001 is designed to be compatible with other management system standards and specifications, such as ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety and ISO 14001 Environmental. There is commonality between the standards which lends itself to the development of one Integrated Management System giving excellent value for money.

Is it right for us?

Regardless of size or type of industry ISO 9001 is suitable for any business that wants to improve the way it operates and is managed.

It helps all kinds of organisations to succeed through improved customer satisfaction, staff motivation and continual improvement.

“Having more information feedback on site activities has allowed us to identify areas for cost savings. It may even pay for the consultancy!”
