The ISO 9001 Accreditation is a easy process with a Gap Audit conducted to see what items need to be addressed before a stage 2 Audit, so you don't waste time and money.
The ISO9001 Certification is based on a set of International Standards for Quality Management and Quality Assurance, developed to help companies improve business operations with the Quality System Elements to be implemented to maintain an efficient Quality System. They are not specific to any one industry and can be applied to organisations of any size. ISO 9000 can help a company satisfy customers, meet regulatory requirements, and achieve continual improvement.
It should be considered to be a first step of a Quality System, not a complete guarantee of Quality.
Quality Management therefore uses Quality Assurance and control of processes as well as products to achieve more consistent Quality.
