Quality Management Systems


ISO 9001 defines the criteria for a quality management system and is the only family standard that can be certified (although this is not a requirement). It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of size. In fact, over one million businesses and organizations in over 170 countries are ISO 9001 certified.

This standard is founded on several quality management principles, including a strong customer focus, top management motivation and involvement, the process approach, and continuous improvement. The ISO quality management principles explain these principles in greater detail. Using ISO 9001 helps to ensure that customers receive consistent, high-quality products and services, which has numerous business benefits.
