|Introduction to ISO 9001:2008
With the move to a process focused management system, managers and those implementing ISO 9001 need to understand the implications for their business. This ONE-DAY course is designed to provide an understanding of the requirements and the impact and benefits a process based system can bring to your organisation.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for the quality management of businesses. It applies to the processes that create and control the products and services an organisation supplies. It prescribes systematic control of activities to ensure that the needs and expectations of customers are met. It is designed and intended to apply to virtually any product or service, made by any process anywhere in the world.
Why obtain certification to ISO 9001?
Registration to ISO 9001 by an accredited certification body shows committed to quality, customers, and a willingness to work towards improving efficiency. It demonstrates the existence of an effective quality management system that satisfies the rigours of an independent, external audit.
An ISO 9001 certificate enhances company image in the eyes of customers, employees and shareholders alike. It also gives a competitive edge to an organisation's marketing.
