What is ISO 9001:2015 Certification?
North America Traffic’s 25,000 square foot facility is ISO 9001:2015 certified. But what does this actually mean? Allow us to explain.
The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the international standard for quality management systems (QMS). It is the most widely used QMS standard in the world, with over a million certificates issued to organizations in 178 countries.
The ISO 9000 standards are made up of a variety of documents related to quality management but ISO 9001 is the only standard in the series that requires certification.
ISO 9001 provides a framework that ensures member organizations are committed to providing high-quality products and services that meet the customer and regulatory requirements for their particular industry.
An organization that is ISO 9001 certified is required to define and follow a quality management system that is appropriate and effective for its industry. They’re also responsible for identifying areas where potential improvements can be made and fulfilling them. As a result, organizations holding this certification are assumed to have products and services that meet quality standards.
It is important to note however that this certification is not a standard for products. Rather, it is a processed-based standard used to control a businesses’ practices, which in the end provides a final product that meets desired results.
