ISO 9001 quality management system for every organisation

Every organisation, large or small, has its own way of operating. It’s a system that works for the organisation, because it produces client satisfaction.

However, it often happens in small organisations that these activities take place without a clearly-defined methodology. There is (little or) no documentation about the way of operating. It’s all in the staff’s heads.

When an organisation becomes larger, more people become involved in the activities and there is a greater chance that everybody just gets on with things.

How can you then continue to guarantee the constant quality of products and services? By documenting the way of operating correctly, so that activities are carried out in an orderly and structured manner.

An ISO 9001 quality management system is an excellent tool for achieving this. It provides order and structure, and has the added benefit that time, money and other resources are used efficiently.

An ISO 9001 quality management system is within the reach of every company. The practical structures of an ISO 9001 quality management system are suitable for all organisations, large or small and in all market segments: commercial, public, non-profit, etc. There are currently more than a million companies and organisations in over a hundred and seventy countries that are certified in accordance with ISO 9001.
