ISO 9001 – Quality Management

ISO 9001 is one of the most popular globally acknowledged quality management standards. It is a widely followed standard across the world. The last two decades have witnessed a revolutionary increase in the number of countries that have adopted the standard. At the same time, a remarkable and steady increase is found in the number of certified companies worldwide. An ISO 9001 certified organisation can get their Quality Management System monitored. Once it has been established that the organisation has met with the requirements of the compliance, the organisation will be entitled with the ISO 9001 Certification.

ISO 9001 sets out the requirements for an effective Quality Management System or QMS, which all sorts of businesses can follow to make sure their offered products or services meet the customer needs and surpass the customers’ expectation. A QMS is a framework of systems, procedures, policies, and methods that can lead the business to the highest level of customer satisfaction. According to the experienced ISO consultants, the latest updated version of ISO 9001 is “more applicable and accessible to all types of enterprises” in comparison to the previous standard (ISO 9001:2008). Perhaps, this is one of the salient reasons behind the rising popularity of the ISO 9001 Standard among the Australian firms.
