ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System implementation

Business Challenge

Organizations of all kinds are increasingly concerned with achieving and demonstrating a good quality management system. Some organizations have undertaken initiatives on their own to develop a management system; however, these actions were not sufficient to provide the organization elements which assure the continual improvement. To be effective they need to be conducted within a structured management system that is integrated within the organization.

ISO 9001:2015 in brief

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognized standard for the quality management of businesses. It applies to the processes that create and control the products and services an organization 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.
