What is ISO 9001?

With ISO 9001 quality management you demonstrate that your organisation is fully in control of the processes. By implementing ISO 9001 you ultimately achieve more in less time and with fewer resources!

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard in the field of quality management, a concept in almost every sector. The standard is a benchmark for transparency and reliability in the market. Quality management is reflected in all parts of the process in your organisation. It ensures that the products or services of your organisation always meet the requirements and wishes of customers, but also of other stakeholders. Through thorough quality management, the most recent legislation and regulations are complied with at all times.

PDCA cycle

You establish the ISO 9001 standard using the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle (PDCA cycle). You are continuously working on improving your internal organisation. With the processes you put in place to set up or improve your quality management system, you serve your customers in the best possible way, from the production process to support.  You will ensure satisfied customers, loyal customers, because you are constantly meeting and perhaps even exceeding their expectations.

Demonstrable quality

With ISO 9001 quality management you show your customers and other stakeholders that your organisation is in full control of its processes and that you systematically provide products and services that meet the requirements of customers and relevant legislation and regulations. Did you know that 50% of companies who successfully implement ISO 9001 quality management in their organisation ultimately achieve a higher turnover?

Save on the costs

With streamlined processes which everyone agrees on and where quality has a central place, you reduce the chance of errors considerably. Everyone in your organisation will also work more efficiently, provided you set up the quality management system properly! Ultimately, you achieve more in less time and with fewer resources.

So why should I get ISO certified?

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for quality management. Many organisations worldwide already are the proud holder of an ISO 9001 certificate. It is not only recognition for the efforts of everyone within your organisation, with an ISO 9001 certificate you show that your organisation considers the delivery of the best possible quality of paramount importance.
