In many sectors, having ISO 9001 certification to the latest version (ISO 9001:2015) is a requirement to trade.
It provides external verification that the quality management systems processes you have in place enable you to operate to recognized international best practice standards.
The benefit of choosing a partner like BM TRADA for your certification is that you will be working with a UKAS accredited certification body whose name is readily accepted by many regulators, purchasers and suppliers around the world, providing you with a 'passport to trade'.
Benefits of ISO 9001 certification (quality management systems)
Your quality management system underpins your entire business. ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized standard which will benefit any organization, large or small, in any sector. Achieving certification will enable you to gain greater market access, win, retain and delight your customers. ISO 9001 is a proven continual best practice improvement tool which will help you identify risk and opportunities both internally and externally and help you implement policies to address them. It is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and commitment of senior management, a process approach and continual improvement. Implementing it leads to greater customer satisfaction which helps you win and retain business. Meeting statutory and regulatory requirements (required by law) is part of the standard so your customers and supply chain partners can have confidence in the products and services which you offer. This leads to improved perception and job satisfaction of colleagues. This leads to you adding value to your stakeholders at every touch point. The ISO 9001:2015 standard incorporates Annex SL which has been created to provide a universal high-level structure (including the plan/do/check/act), identical core text, and common terms and definitions for all management system standards. It was designed to make it easier for organizations that have to comply with more than one management system standard which makes integrating easier.
