Ensuring efficiency through ISO 9001 certification
ISO 9001 is the international standard for a quality management system (QMS). It is used by organisations to show that they are able to produce products and/or deliver services in line with regulatory requirements and customer expectations. Conosco offers ISO 9001 consultancy to help organisations meet the requirements for certification.
As well as supporting the implementation of measures to ensure a consistent level of service, the consultancy process also guides your business in continual improvement. Our ISO 9001 consultants will help you to define internal procedures and monitor the performance of employees and the organisation as a whole to promote business growth.
What is ISO 9001 certification?
The ISO 9001 standard evaluates whether your quality management system is appropriate and effective for your use case. The certification process also encourages you to identify and implement improvements to your system. When an organisation is ISO 9001 Certified, it means that their QMS meets the requirements of the standard.
ISO 9001 does not define product quality, nor is it a standard that an individual person can achieve. It controls the processes of the organisation, in turn helping to ensure that your end product or service meets the required standards. Usually, an organisation as a whole will seek certification, although it can be delivered for specific departments or processes.
Benefits of ISO 9001 certification
Although it is not mandatory, there are lots of reasons why businesses seek accreditation. ISO 9001 certification can help you to:
- Identify deficiencies in products or services
- Improve operational efficiency
- Define employees’ key roles and responsibilities
- Ensure consistent, repeatable processes
- Reduce wastage, rejected work and complaints
- Win new business and retain existing clients
- Stand out from competitors
- Save money through improved efficiency and productivity
- Engage in continuous improvement
How does our ISO 9001 consultancy work?
Conosco’s expert ISO 9001 consultancy service includes management of the implementation and certification process, guiding you every step of the way.
First of all, we will perform a health check of your organisation and QMS against the latest version of the ISO 9001 requirements.
We’ll issue you with a report detailing areas of improvement and the steps that need to be taken to bring your QMS up to the required standard.
We work with you to implement any missing requirements of the standard, and assist in facilitating your external certification audit to achieve certification.
Once you’ve successfully achieved ISO9001 certification, we can work with you on an ongoing basis to ensure that you meet the mandatory requirements for recertification.
We also offer ISO 27001 consultancy and a range of strategic consulting services to ensure that your organisation follows IT security best practices and that your IT requirements are aligned with your business goals.
