ISO 9001 is the only standard in the ISO 9000 family that is certified for the quality management system. There are millions of companies and organizations like small, large, medium, and field types industries all over the world that are certified under the ISO 9001.
ISO 9001 is specifically based on the quality management principles like how to improve customer relationships and the motivation of top management as well as association.
ISO 9001 ensures product quality and service, which will bring back more benefits because the main motive of any organization is to provide customer satisfaction and fulfillment.
So all these details of principles are explained in ISO 9001 Quality Management Principles.
ISO 9001 is the most used and world’s known quality management system which is easy to implement with minimal investment.
We know that to achieve anything first we have to make a proper plan to execute that depends on what to do, how to do, where to do it, and also by using the SWOT analysis of any shortcoming is the best way to resolve it. This all planning has come under the preparation. If you want to do anything then you better have to prepare for it. Immediate success may hurt your business so don’t take any shortcuts. This might destroy all planning, the productivity, and quality of the product will get reduced which will affect your long time business field.
If you want to do anything or If you are making plans for your organization then you have to write it down. Writing any documentation is a difficult thing to implement proper planning.
Some documentation doesn’t meet the requirements of ISO 9001 standard and some people aren’t able to understand how to write the document and apply it in their company.
And kindly arrange all documents required for your implementation.
If you want to implement your planning then you have to demonstrate it to your affected employees and train them as per the requirement of planning to adjust them which is important to improve the quality and process respectively. After implementation make the proper record
Because the auditor will review the record at a verification time.
In internal audits, the work process of the organization, management system of the organization, as well as staff interviews and records of the company, will be verified by the internal audits. Internal audits are done by the employees of the organization who take care of this auditor’s responsibility as additional work. Internal audit is done periodically to achieve the certification. So the main objective of the company is to apply ISO 9001 and verify the procedures and instructions under it.
Then finally the company needs to undergo a certification audit, it is the same as the internal audit but the only difference is that in a certification audit third party will take the audit of the company in which the auditor will verify all the shortcomings of the company like quality production, employee motivation and training related issues. But once the inspection will be done with the complete satisfaction of the auditor then the certification of ISO 9001 will be awarded to the company with a validity time of 3year.
So finally I say that the ISO 9001 certification is very important to enhance the quality of the product, good employee relations, to improve the productivity of the company as well as for better customer relationship. So once you implement a quality management system in the organization then automatically the change and improvement will be recognized in the system.
If you also want to overcome your shortcomings then go for it and apply for ISO registration.
