Establishment of ISO 9001

ISO Consult Center accompanies your company in establishing ISO 9001

Introduction to ISO 9001

ISO 9001 is a standard that defines the requirements for a quality management system (QMS). It helps businesses and organizations to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. The focus of the ISO 9001 standard is to meet customer needs and strive to exceed customer expectations. The ISO 9001 standard is a set of requirements that lead to the implementation and maintenance of a quality management system for a company. In fact, ISO 9001 is a management tool to improve customer satisfaction and increase the efficiency of the organization. Govind Ramus’ story of ISO 9001:2015 is not a scary one. It is a common-sense approach to running any organization. When process owners complain about the extra work that ISO 9001 creates, I always ask them: Tell me one thing about ISO 9001 that you wouldn’t do in business. With or without ISO 9001, the requirements outlined in the standard are fundamental to any business.

What is ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 defines the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be audited for voluntary compliance or third-party registration. More than one million companies and organizations in more than 170 countries are ISO 9001 certified. All ISO 9001 requirements are general and applicable to any organization, regardless of its type, size, or products and services. This standard is based on seven principles of quality management, including:

  1. Customer focus
  2. Leadership
  3. Engagement of people
  4. Process approach
  5. Improvement
  6. Evidence-based decision making
  7. Relationship management

ISO 9001 structure and continuous improvement cycle. 

The PDCA cycle, which stands for Plan-Do-Check-Act, is a management strategy used for the continuous improvement of processes and organizational performance. This cycle consists of four stages:

  • Plan: in this stage, goals and strategies for improvement are determined. Plans and implementation methods are established for objectives.

Standard clauses related to the plan (4-context of the organization 5-leadership 6-planing 7-support)

  • Do: in this stage, the plans defined in the previous stage are executed. Necessary actions and activities are carried out to improve performance.

Standard clauses related to the Do (8-operation)

  • Check: in this stage, the performance and results of the action are evaluated. Collected information is compared with standards and objectives.

Standard clauses related to the Do (9-performance and evaluation)

  • Take action: At this stage, decisions are made for improvement and necessary steps are taken to address any deficiencies based on the evaluation results.

Standard clauses related to the Action (10-continual improvement)

The cycle then resumes with the planning stage.
