What is it?
Many businesses find that their growth plans are predicated on tendering for work or getting into supply chains which requires them to have a formal quality management certification.
This is one good reason to achieve certification but an effective quality management system will also provide you and your employees with a framework of policies, processes and procedures to support business growth and a practical means to drive continuous improvement within your business.
ISO 9001 helps you to identify and mitigate business risk, monitor and improve business performance. This will lead to higher productivity, greater efficiency, reduced errors and waste and increased consistency in product or service delivery.
It is an explicit demonstration of being a reliable employer and supplier who is committed to high standards and a culture of continuous improvement.
